Abstract

The properties of acoustically responsive neurons were studied in the anterior part of the gyrus suprasylvius (ASG) of the cat. The most important features of the responses given to pure tones of different frequencies were: short latency, sharp tuning curves with well definable best frequency (BF). In these respects the cells showed a close resemblance to those of primary acoustic area (AI), and at the same time they proved to be true bimodal cells (responding to somatosensory stimuli, too) like those of the associative areas.
