Aim 1

 Comparisons of cortical areas, cortical layers, and neurotransmitters of mice, bats, guinea pigs, cats, macaques and humans.  

Aim 2

  Comparison of activity patterns across the auditory cortex in response to spatial sounds and communication vocalizations.  This will involve the analysis of data using voltage sensitive dyes in mice, bats, guinea pigs, cats, and macaques.  This will involve comparisons of fMRI data in macaques and humans.
