1. Behavioral thresholds were obtained from cats, first with only their right ear and right dorsal, intermediate, and ventral acoustic striae (DAS, IAS, and VAS, respectively) intact, and then again with only their right ventral acoustic stria intact. 2. Using usual definitions of "threshold" the loss of the dorsal and intermediate acoustic striae results(More)
The neocortical origins of the anterior commissure in the acallosal, marsupial opossum were studied with the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) method. Following complete surgical transection of the anterior commissure, HRP was applied directly to the cut fiber tips. This procedure resulted in very large numbers of vividly labeled cells within the neocortex. The(More)
We report the results of behavioral studies in cats conducted first, to demonstrate the presence of a monaural mechanism for the enhancement of signal to noise; and then to examine the necessity or sufficiency of the acoustic striae for this mechanism. The results show that cats do indeed have a monaural mechanism for enhancing the detection of tones in(More)
Although each lateral lemniscus is required for sound localization in its contralateral hemifield, no auditory function is yet known for the neural activity evoked in the lemniscus ipsilateral to a sound source. In an attempt to assess the role played by the ipsilateral lemniscus, monaural cats were tested on an array of psychoacoustical tasks before and(More)
Transforming science learning through student-centered instruction that engages students in a variety of scientific practices is central to national science-teaching reform efforts. Our study employed a large-scale, randomized-cluster experimental design to compare the effects of student-centered and teacher-centered approaches on elementary school(More)
