High impact information on Sound Localization

  • The primary interest was to determine whether the congenital absence of the corpus callosum affects auditory localization, especially for sounds situated near the midline of auditory space or moving across it [1].
  • We investigated the changes in glycine responses and their ionic mechanism in developing neurones of the rat lateral superior olive (LSO), an auditory brainstem nucleus involved in sound localization [2].
  • 5. Transection of the commissure of Probst produced marked deficits in midline sound localization [3].
  • 4. Two animals with kainic acid lesions that caused little or no damage to the SOC were still capable of high levels of performance in tests of sound localization and had no elevation in minimum audible angles [4].
  • A further ERP study with these subjects also revealed N1 and P3 components during a sound localization task to be more posteriorly distributed than for sighted controls, indicating an involvement of posterior regions in sound localization for blind subjects not present for sighted subjects [5].

Chemical compound and disease context of Sound Localization

  • RESULTS: Horizon judgments were lower at 4 Gz than at 1 Gz, so sound localization responses at 4 Gz were corrected for this error in the transformation from eye-centered to head-centered coordinates [6].

Biological context of Sound Localization

  • To preserve the fidelity of timing of action potentials that is required for sound localization, these neurons express several types of potassium channels, including the Kv3 and Kv1 families of voltage-dependent channels and the Slick and Slack sodium-dependent channels [7].

Gene context of Sound Localization

  • In contrast, under conditions of induced myopia, visual localization performance was degraded by an average of 25%, while auditory localization performance was unaffected [8].
  • Open earmold fittings for improving aided auditory localization for sensorineural hearing losses with good high-frequency hearing [9].
  • Minimum resolvable angles (MRAs) for sound localization in azimuth in the gerbil were determined in a behavioral study using tones, 300-Hz bands of noise centered at frequencies between 500 Hz and 8 kHz and broad-band noise of on average 60 dB SPL overall level [10].
  • Sound localization. Part I: a brief history [11].
  • ON1 is a source of contralateral inhibition to AN1 and AN2, enhancing binaural contrast and facilitating sound localization [12].
