Sound source location is computed at central levels in the auditory ­system based on the neural representations of the spectral and temporal characteristics of the sounds arriving at the ears. Interaural level differences, an acoustical cue to location, are first encoded by neurons in the lateral superior olive (LSO). The sound spectra at the left and right ears must be encoded accurately by the afferents to the LSO in order for the LSO neurons to extract the ILD. Here, we use a systems… CONTINUE READING
