Response properties of auditory cortical neurons measured in anesthetized preparations have provided important information on the physiological differences between neurons in different auditory cortical areas. Studies in the awake animal, however, have been much less common, and the physiological differences noted may reflect differences in the influence of(More)
Lesion studies have indicated that the auditory cortex is crucial for the perception of acoustic space, yet it remains unclear how these neurons participate in this perception. To investigate this, we studied the responses of single neurons in the primary auditory cortex (AI) and the caudomedial field (CM) of two monkeys while they performed a(More)
Sound localization ability has traditionally been studied using either a relative localization task, where thresholds to determine a difference in sound source location is approximately 1-10 degrees, or an absolute localization task, where the range of estimates of the source of a sound are 4-30 degrees. In order to directly relate these two psychophysical(More)
