Auditory cortex in the grey squirrel: tonotopic organization and architectonic fields

J Comp Neurol. 1976 Apr 15;166(4):387-401. doi: 10.1002/cne.901660402.


The representation of sound frequency within auditory cortex has been investigated with microelectrode mapping techniques in grey squirrels. The cyto- and myeloarchitecture of mapped cortical surfaces was examined and related to recording data. Among the results were the following: (1) A primary field can be defined on the basis of both physiological and anatomical criteria.
