Abstract

Responses were obtained from 112 auditory neurons in the midbrain of the grass frog in response to sequences of tones. Their spectre-temporal sensitivities (STS) were determined by a second-order cross-correlation technique. For the majority of units the shape of their action potentials, the degree of timelock to the stimulus and the recording sites were obtained. Two stages of information processing could be distinguished. One was characterized by short latencies (
