Effects of eye position on auditory localization and neural representation of space in superior colliculus of cats.

Abstract:

The maps of visual and auditory space within the superior colliculus are in approximate register both with each other and with the underlying motor maps associated with orienting responses. The fact that eyes and ears can move independently poses a problem for the sensorimotor organization of these two modalities. By monitoring eye and pinna positions in alert, head-fixed cats, we showed that the accuracy of saccadic eye movements to auditory targets was little affected by eye eccentricity (r...
