Although the auditory cortex is known to be involved in auditory source localisation, its role is not yet clear. Studies of spatial coding in the auditory cortex suggest that spatial information is encoded differently across different species, with some species (bat) having a map of auditory space in the cortex and others (cat) using a distributed code with no apparent topographic organisation. Here we propose a study to examine the neural code for spatial information in the cortex of mice.
