Redefining the tonotopic core of rat auditory cortex: Physiological evidence for a posterior field
Previous physiological studies have identified a tonotopically organized primary auditory cortical field (AI) in the rat. Some of this prior research suggests that the rat, like other mammals, mayExpand

Monaural inhibition in cat auditory cortex.
1. Several studies of auditory cortex have examined the competitive inhibition that can occur when appropriate sounds are presented to each ear. However, most cortical neurons also show bothExpand

Auditory temporal processing: responses to sinusoidally amplitude-modulated tones in the inferior colliculus.
Time-varying envelopes are a common feature of acoustic communication signals like human speech and induce a variety of percepts in human listeners. We studied the responses of 109 single neurons inExpand

Neurons sensitive to interaural phase disparity in gerbil superior olive: diverse monaural and temporal response properties.
1. We assessed mechanisms of binaural interaction underlying detection of interaural phase disparity (IPD) by recording single-unit responses in the superior olivary complex (SOC) of the anesthetizedExpand

Development of ectopic projections from the ventral cochlear nucleus to the superior olivary complex induced by neonatal ablation of the contralateral cochlea
The ability of an animal to localize a sound in space requires the precise innervation of the superior olivary complex by the ventral cochlear nuclei on each side of the lower brainstem. This preciseExpand

Transformation of temporal processing across auditory cortex of awake macaques.
The anatomy and connectivity of the primate auditory cortex has been modeled as a core region receiving direct thalamic input surrounded by a belt of secondary fields. The core contains multipleExpand

Frequency-dependent interaural delays in the medial superior olive: implications for interaural cochlear delays.
Neurons in the medial superior olive (MSO) are tuned to the interaural time difference (ITD) of sound arriving at the two ears. MSO neurons evoke a strongest response at their best delay (BD), atExpand

Directionality of sound pressure transformation at the cat's pinna
The directionality of the cat's pinna was studied by using the amplitude of the cochlear microphonic (CM) as a quantitative indicator of tympanic sound pressure level (SPL). It was found thatExpand

Representation of sound frequency and laterality by units in central nucleus of cat inferior colliculus.
1. The discharges of 632 units were isolated extracellularly during 42 penetrations of the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) in 21 adult cats lightly anesthetized with pentobarbitalExpand
