LSO, MSO, and DCN converge in the central nucleus of the IC (ICC).

Individual IC neurons combine localization cues.

Barn owls use interaural level differences for vertical sound source localization: their feathers on their head are asymmetric leading to differences in their ears' sensitivities to sounds from above and below.

Early levels of the auditory pathways are tonotopic.

The external nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICx) of the barn owl represents a map of auditory space.

The optic tectum (OT) receives information on sound source localization from ICx.
