Sound localization acuity in the cat: effect of azimuth, signal duration, and test procedure.

Abstract

The sound localization acuity of cats was determined at 0 degrees, 30 degrees, 60 degrees, and 90 degrees from the median sagittal plane for four durations of noise bursts using two behavioral procedures. Similar thresholds were also obtained for humans. The cats' average thresholds for a 40 ms noise burst ranged from 4.8 degrees at 0 degrees azimuth to 9.0… (More)
