Abstract

The auditory system computes sound location by detecting submillisecond time differences in the arrival of sound at the two ears. Studies by van der Heijden etal. (2013) and Roberts etal. (2013) in this issue of Neuron shed light on how this is accomplished by the interaction of excitatory and inhibitory synapses
