The directionality of cochlear microphonic potentials in the azimuthal plane was investigated in the pigeon (Columba livia), using acoustic free-field stimulation (pure tones of 0.25–6 kHz). At high frequencies in the pigeon's hearing range (4–6 kHz), changing azimuth resulted in a maximum change of the cochlear microphonic amplitude by about 20 dB (SPL… (More)
