Chapter 7

Notes (19 August 2008) 

P. 224: The reader will notice that I am not using the terms EI, EE etc in the cortex – this is because they are less useful here than in the brainstem. Whether or not stimuli in the less excitatory ear are inhibitory or not, is secondary to the issue that maximum firing is produced by a coincidence of stimuli which have a certain interaural level difference. (19 August 2008)

P. 231: Commentary: large lesions can be expected to produce retrograde degeneration in the MGB: therefore the interpretation of lesion experiments may be complicated by variation in the degree of thalamic involvement. (19 August 2008)
