Single neurones in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) of barbiturate-anesthetized cats were examined using free-field, pure-tone stimuli of low intensity at the neurones' best frequency. Receptive field size was inversely correlated with best frequency. Almost all neurones were maximally excited by stimulus positions in the hemifield contralateral to the recording electrode, irrespective of their best frequency. Simultaneous cochlear microphonic recording revealed that the… CONTINUE READING
