Multiparametric auditory receptive field organization across five cortical fields in the albino rat.
The auditory cortex of the rat is becoming an increasingly popular model system for studies of experience-dependent receptive field plasticity. However, the relative position of various fields withinExpand

Spectrotemporal receptive fields in the lemniscal auditory thalamus and cortex.
Receptive fields have been characterized independently in the lemniscal auditory thalamus and cortex, usually with spectrotemporally simple sounds tailored to a specific task. No studies haveExpand

Functional Convergence of Response Properties in the Auditory Thalamocortical System
One of the brain's fundamental tasks is to construct and transform representations of an animal's environment, yet few studies describe how individual neurons accomplish this. Our results fromExpand

Analysis of optic flow in the monkey parietal area 7a.
Environmentally relevant stimuli were used to examine the selectivity of area 7a neurons to optic flow using moving, flickering dots. Monkeys performed a psychophysical task requiring them to detectExpand

Specialization of Binaural Responses in Ventral Auditory Cortices
Accurate orientation to sound under challenging conditions requires auditory cortex, but it is unclear how spatial attributes of the auditory scene are represented at this level. Current organizationExpand

Functional architecture of auditory cortex
Three complementary approaches demonstrate new types of organization in rodent, feline and primate auditory cortex, as well as differences in processing between auditory and visual cortex. First,Expand

Modular organization of intrinsic connections associated with spectral tuning in cat auditory cortex
tl;dr
We find long-range (≥1.5 mm) convergent intrinsic horizontal connections between AI subregions with similar bandwidth and characteristic frequency selectivity. Expand

Neural Modulation Tuning Characteristics Scale to Efficiently Encode Natural Sound Statistics
The efficient-coding hypothesis asserts that neural and perceptual sensitivity evolved to faithfully represent biologically relevant sensory signals. Here we characterized the spectrotemporalExpand

Thalamocortical pathway specialization for sound frequency resolution
Core auditory cortices are organized in parallel pathways that process incoming sensory information differently. In the rat, sound filtering properties of the primary (A1) and ventral (VAF) auditoryExpand

Naturalistic Auditory Contrast Improves Spectrotemporal Coding in the Cat Inferior Colliculus
Statistical analysis of natural sounds and speech reveals logarithmically distributed spectrotemporal modulations that can cover several orders of magnitude. By contrast, most artificial stimuli usedExpand
