In the Jamaican mustached bat, Pteronotus parnellii parnellii, one of the subdivisions of the primary auditory cortex is disproportionately large and over-represents sound at approximately 61 kHz. This area, called the Doppler-shifted constant frequency (DSCF) processing area, consists of neurons extremely sharply tuned to a sound at approximately 61 kHz. We found that a focal activation of the DSCF area evokes highly specific corticofugal modulation in the inferior colliculus and medial… CONTINUE READING
