NMDA-receptor antagonists disrupt the formation of the auditory space map in the mammalian superior colliculus.

Abstract:

In the ferret (Mustela putorius) the map of auditory space in the deeper layers of the superior colliculus (SC) matures over a period of several postnatal weeks, a process known to be guided by both visual and auditory experience. The auditory responses are initially very broadly tuned, and gradually become more selective for specific sound locations that coincide with the visual receptive fields recorded in the same region of the SC. To investigate the possible involvement of NMDA-type gluta...
