Segregation of stimulus phase and intensity coding in the cochlear nucleus of the barn owl
The cochlear nucleus of the barn owl is composed of two anatomically distinct subnuclei, n. magnocellularis (the magnocellular nucleus) and n. angularis (the angular nucleus). In the magnocellularExpand

Representation of interaural time difference in the central nucleus of the barn owl's inferior colliculus
This paper investigates the role of the central nucleus of the barn owl's inferior colliculus in determination of the sound-source azimuth. The central nucleus contains many neurons that areExpand

A neural map of auditory space in the owl.
TLDR
Auditory units that responded to sound only when it originated from a limited area of space were found in the lateral and anterior portions of the midbrain auditory nucleus of the owl (Tyto alba). Expand

Selectivity for interaural time difference in the owl's midbrain
The barn owl uses the interaural difference in the timing of sounds to determine the azimuth of the source. When the sound has a wide frequency band, localization is precise. When localizing tones,Expand

Tolerance to Sound Intensity of Binaural Coincidence Detection in the Nucleus Laminaris of the Owl
Neurons of the owl’s nucleus laminaris serve as coincidence detectors for measurement of interaural time difference. The discharge rate of nucleus laminaris neurons for both monaural and binauralExpand

Neuronal growth, atrophy and death in a sexually dimorphic song nucleus in the zebra finch brain
The song control nuclei of the zebra finch brain contain more neurones of larger diameter in the male than in the female1. This sexual dimorphism is thought to result from differential growth ofExpand

Decrystallization of adult birdsong by perturbation of auditory feedback
Young birds learn to sing by using auditory feedback to compare their own vocalizations to a memorized or innate song pattern; ifthey are deafened as juveniles, they will not develop normal songs,.Expand
