Current source density profiles of stimulus-specific adaptation in rat auditory cortex.

Abstract:

Neurons in primary auditory cortex (A1) are known to exhibit a phenomenon known as stimulus-specific adaptation (SSA), which means that, when tested with pure tones, they will respond more strongly to a particular frequency if it is presented as a rare, unexpected "oddball" stimulus than when the same stimulus forms part of a series of common, "standard" stimuli. Although SSA has occasionally been observed in midbrain neurons that form part of the paraleminscal auditory pathway, it is thought...
