Auditory spatial receptive fields of 122 single units in the inferior colliculus of 8 anesthetised cats were studied with free-field acoustic stimuli presented in the frontal hemisphere. The best frequency and best frequency threshold were determined for each unit with the speaker located in a position where the unit responded strongly. The intensity was then raised to 10 dB above threshold at the best frequency and the boundaries of the spatial receptive field were determined.
