Both visual and auditory neurons in the deep SC usually prefer moving stimuli and are direction selective.

The range of directions deep SC neurons are selective for is usally wide.

The response of neurons in the SC to a given stimulus decreases if that stimulus is presented constantly or repeatedly at a relatively slow rate (once every few seconds, up to a minute).

The neurons in the superficial (rhesus) monkey SC largely prefer moving stimuli over non-moving stimuli.
