Why auditory pitch and spatial elevation get high together

Researchers from Bielefeld University have demonstrated the origin of the mapping between auditory pitch and spatial elevation. Their analysis suggests that the shape of the human ear might have evolved to mirror the acoustic properties of the natural environment. Foto: Parise & Ernst; University of Bielefeld

Researchers uncover why there is a mapping between pitch and elevation.[more]

Rats have a double view of the world

Rats process visual information from their eyes similar to other mammals. Nevertheless, their eyes move in a very different way. Unlike humans, their eyes can move in opposite directions. Credit: MPI for Biological Cybernetics/ Kerr

Rodents move their eyes in opposite directions, thereby always keeping an eye on the airspace above them [more]
