A Comparison of the Responses Evoked by Artificial Stimuli and Vocalizations in the Inferior Colliculus of Squirrel Monkeys
Although our present understanding of the auditory system comes primarily from studies using easily defined acoustic parameters, an organism’s acoustic environment consists primarily of constantly changing complex stimuli. Our study was undertaken to compare the responses of inferior colliculus (i. c.) neurons to simple artificial stimuli and to more complex species-specific vocalizations.
