The song of the zebra finch is facilitated and altered by the presence of a female. Thus, visual information should affect the song system of the bird. Visually evoked potentials can be recorded from n. hyperstriatum ventrale pars caudale (HVc). The long latency of this potential and its variability indicate several processing steps between primary sensory areas of the telencephalon and HVC. Within HVc, under these experimental conditions no interaction between acoustic and visual input could… CONTINUE READING
