    abstract = {The inferior colliculus in the barn owl contains three subdivisions: the central ({ICC}), external ({ICX}), and superficial ({ICS}) nuclei. The nuclei are distinguished on the basis of their cyto- and myeloarchitecture, connectivity, and physiological properties. The {ICC} may be further divided into dorsal ({ICCd}) and ventral ({ICCv}) parts. Auditory fibers ascending in the lateral lemniscus enter the {ICCd} and {ICCv}, but not the {ICX} or {ICS}. The {ICX} receives its auditory input from the {ICC}. The {ICC} and {ICX} in owls are similar in position, anatomy, connectivity, and physiology to the {ICC} and {ICX} in mammals, suggesting that these structures are homologous. Units in the {ICC} are organized tonotopically, whereas units in the {ICX} are organized according to the locations of their spatial receptive fields. This implies that a transformation from a tonotopic to a spatiotopic organization takes place in the {ICX} of the owl.},
