1. The responses of single units in the midbrain auditory nuclei of Limnodynastes dorsalis to sound stimuli differing in frequency and intensity were examined. On the basis of best frequency, the units could be divided into three groups: units with best frequency below 300 Hz; units with best frequency between 300 and 1000 Hz (Fig. 1A, B); and units with two best frequencies, one above and one below 300 Hz (Fig. 1 A). It is suggested that units of the first two groups are derived respectively… CONTINUE READING
