Effects of altering spectral cues in infancy on horizontal and vertical sound localization by adult ferrets.

Abstract:

We investigated the behavioral consequences of removing the pinna and concha of the external ear bilaterally in infancy on the sound localization ability of adult ferrets. Altering spectral cues in this manner has previously been shown to disrupt the development of the neural representation of auditory space in the superior colliculus. Using broadband noise stimuli, we tested pinnae-removed ferrets and normal ferrets in three sound localization tasks. In each case, we found that both groups o...
