Characterization of local invariances in the ascending ferret auditory system

Local probabilistic invariances, defined by the range of physical transformations that can be applied to a sensory stimulus without changing the corresponding neural response , are largely unstudied in auditory cortex. We propose to assess these invariances using existing and new experimental neurophysiological data recorded from multiple stages of the ferret auditory processing hierarchy.
