VIP neurons are a novel class of inferior colliculus stellate neurons that project to long-range auditory and non-auditory targets and integrate inputs from the auditory brainstem and contralateral IC.
Down regulation of the gain from the vestibular sensory sources prior to the initiation of movement is a motor control solution to overcome the reflex-stabilizing mechanisms to enable motion from a postural orientation.
Everyday soundscapes dynamically engage attention towards target sounds or salient ambient events, with both attentional forms engaging the same fronto-parietal network but in a push-pull competition for limited neural resources.
Brain imaging reveals frequency-dependent lateralized rhythmic finger tapping control by the auditory cortex with left-lateralized control of relative fast and right-lateralized control of relative slow rhythms.
Human perceptual sensitivity to frequency modulation across the hearing range can be explained by a unitary neural code based on neural responses to amplitude modulation and fidelity of cochlear tuning.
Facing discrepancies in the sensory environment, multisensory information is combined in the medial superior parietal cortex to guide immediate judgements and to also adjust subsequent unisensory perception.
