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

In mammals, different neurons in the lateral superior olive (LSO) are tuned to different ILDs.

The granularity of representations of ITDs and ILDs in MSO and LSO reflects the fact that ITD and ILD are most useful for auditory localization in different frequency ranges: ITDs for high frequencies are less densely represented in MSO and ITDS are less densely represented in LSO.

Liu et al. model the LSO and MSO as well as the integrating inferior colliculus.

Their system can localize sounds with a spatial resolution of 30 degrees.

Interaural time and level difference do not help (much) in localizing sounds in the vertical plane. Spectral cues—cues in the change of the frequencies in the sound due to differential reflection from various body parts—help us do that.
