Abstract

The ability of chinchillas to localize sound was examined behaviorally using a conditioned avoidance procedure in which the animals were trained to discriminate left from right sound sources. Their minimum audible angle was 15.6 degrees for 100-ms broadband noise making them oneof the more accurate rodents, although they are not as accurate as primates and carnivores. Thresholds obtained for filtered noise stimuli demonstrated that chinchillas are equally accurate in localizing either low- or high-frequency noise. Further, they are able to use both interaural phase-difference and interaural intensity-difference cues as demonstrated by their ability to localize both low- and high-frequency pure tones. Finally, analysis of the chinchilla retina supports the hypothesis that the role of auditory localization in directing the eyes to sound sources played a role in the evolution of auditory spatial perception.
