We have constructed a detailed biophysical model of coincidence detector neurons in the nucleus laminaris (auditory brainstem) which are purported to detect interaural time di!erences (ITDs). In the model, ITD coding is improved when the inputs from both ears are located on the bipolar dendrites and segregated, over having both inputs on the soma: the model behaves like the in vivo coincidence detectors. The model has enabled us to explore features of the coincidence detector neurons… CONTINUE READING
