The Inferior Colliculus
The purpose of this volume is twofold. First, it offers an in-depth analysis of
current approaches and issues in the study of the auditory system. By concentrating
on one structure, the inferior colliculus, a focused and coherent treatment
of many aspects of auditory neural processing is possible. The position of the
inferior... Software Development on a Leash (Expert's Voice)
