The role of primary auditory cortex in sound localisation

Abstract:

This thesis investigates the involvement of primary auditory cortex (A1) in sound localisation. Experiments were carried out both to assess the effect of A1 inactivation on sound localisation, and to measure the sensitivity of single A1 neurons to sound source location.

Ferrets were trained to localise bursts of broadband noise, of varying intensity and duration, from an array of loudspeakers that spanned 360 degrees in azimuth. Bilateral A1 inactivation caused an impairment on this ...
