A summary of how the electrical signals used to represent sounds are encoded and interpreted through the integrated roles of various nuclei. This volume builds on the information about the anatomy and physiology of the auditory pathway found in volumes 1 and 2 of the SHAR series. While the first two volumes describe the structure and function of auditory pathways, this one explains how these pathways lead to an animal's ability to localize and interpret sounds.
Introduction.- Summary of Ascending and Descending Auditory Pathways Form the Cochlea.- Biophysical Specializations for Encoding Timing in Brainstem Auditory Nuclei.- Detection of Interaural Time and Intensity Differences for Localization in the Binaural Pathways Through the Brainstem.- The Encoding of Spectral Distortions for Localization in Elevation in the Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus and Inferior Colliculus.- Ascending Pathways Through Monaural Brainstem Nuclei and their Possible Role in Pattern Recognition of Natural Sounds.- Convergence of Brainstem Pathways in the Inferior Colliculus.- Sound Localization by the Auditory Cortex.- Feature Detection by the Auditory Cortex.
