About 30% of the auditory units in the midbrain of the lightly anaesthetised grass frog respond in a sustained way to stationary pseudorandom noise. This response is described by the spectro-temporal receptive field (STRF), the regions in the spectro-temporal domain where the average second-order functional of those parts of the stimulus ensemble that precede the action potentials differ from the average second-order functional of the stimulus ensemble. By means of the STRF frequency… CONTINUE READING
