Responses of neurons to apparent auditory motion in the azimuth were recorded in three different fields of auditory cortex of the rufous horseshoe bat. Motion was simulated using successive stimuli with dynamically changing interaural intensity differences presented via earphones. Seventy-one percent of sampled neurons were motion-direction-sensitive. Two types of responses could be distinguished. Thirty-four percent of neurons showed a directional preference exhibiting stronger responses to… CONTINUE READING
