Tom C.T. Yin, Bradford J. May

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides an overview of the role of the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) in auditory behavioral tasks. This question must be addressed to understand the function of this large structure. The substantial literature on the anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology reflect its importance as a nexus for ascending and descending auditory information processing.
