    Intercollicular commissural connections refine the representation of sound frequency and level in the auditory midbrain

    Llwyd David Orton, Adrian Rees
    Deactivation of one side of the auditory midbrain while recording in the other shows that the two sides cooperate in processing frequency and in enhancing the encoding of sound level.

    Inhibition in the auditory brainstem enhances signal representation and regulates gain in complex acoustic environments

    Christian Keine et al.
    Inhibition in the brainstem has further roles beyond temporal sharpening and improves reproduction for a multitude of sounds.

    Population rate-coding predicts correctly that human sound localization depends on sound intensity

    Antje Ihlefeld et al.
    Softer sound appears closer to midline than louder sound, conflicting with a labelled-line representation of auditory space and supporting the idea that humans use rate coding when calculating sound directionality.

    Differential contributions of the two human cerebral hemispheres to action timing

    Anja Pflug et al.
    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.

    A novel class of inferior colliculus principal neurons labeled in vasoactive intestinal peptide-Cre mice

    David Goyer et al.
    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.

    Push-pull competition between bottom-up and top-down auditory attention to natural soundscapes

    Nicholas Huang, Mounya Elhilali
    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.

    The role of cochlear place coding in the perception of frequency modulation

    Kelly L Whiteford et al.
    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.

    Shared neural underpinnings of multisensory integration and trial-by-trial perceptual recalibration in humans

    Hame Park, Christoph Kayser
    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.
    1. Neuroscience

    Dipolar extracellular potentials generated by axonal projections

    Thomas McColgan et al.
    Action potentials propagating in axon bundles with bifurcating and terminating fibers cause strong and far-reaching extracellular potentials.

    Spatial cue reliability drives frequency tuning in the barn Owl's midbrain

    Fanny Cazettes et al.
    Space-specific neurons in the owl's auditory midbrain are selective for the frequencies that yield the most reliable sound localization cues.
