Single neurons may encode simultaneous stimuli by switching between activity patterns.
(Nature communications, 2018-07-13)
How the brain preserves information about multiple simultaneous items is poorly understood. We report that single neurons can represent multiple stimuli by interleaving signals across time. We record single units in an auditory ...
Systematic mapping of the monkey inferior colliculus reveals enhanced low frequency sound representation.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2011-04)
We investigated the functional architecture of the inferior colliculus (IC) in rhesus monkeys. We systematically mapped multiunit responses to tonal stimuli and noise in the IC and surrounding tissue of six rhesus macaques, ...
Effects of Electrical Stimulation in the Inferior Colliculus on Frequency Discrimination by Rhesus Monkeys and Implications for the Auditory Midbrain Implant.
(The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2016-05)
Understanding the relationship between the auditory selectivity of neurons and their contribution to perception is critical to the design of effective auditory brain prosthetics. These prosthetics seek to mimic natural activity ...
Auditory signals evolve from hybrid- to eye-centered coordinates in the primate superior colliculus.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2012-07)
Visual and auditory spatial signals initially arise in different reference frames. It has been postulated that auditory signals are translated from a head-centered to an eye-centered frame of reference compatible with the ...
Looking at the ventriloquist: visual outcome of eye movements calibrates sound localization.
(PloS one, 2013-01)
A general problem in learning is how the brain determines what lesson to learn (and what lessons not to learn). For example, sound localization is a behavior that is partially learned with the aid of vision. This process ...
