Spatial response properties of acoustically responsive neurons in the superior colliculus of the ferret: a map of auditory space.

Abstract:

Extracellular single-unit recordings were made from auditory neurons in the superior colliculus of ferrets anesthetized with either a neuroleptic or a combination of barbiturate with paralysis. The response properties of these neurons were studied using white-noise bursts presented under free-field conditions in an anechoic chamber. Auditory neurons were found throughout the intermediate and deep layers of the superior colliculus. All neurons were spontaneously active, the rates of discharge ...
