Grothe, Benedikt ORCID: 0000-0001-7317-0615 (2018): How the Barn Owl Computes Auditory Space. In: Trends in Neurosciences, Vol. 41, No. 3: pp. 115-117

In a series of seminal behavioral and electrophysiological experiments, Knudsen and Konishi studied the mechanisms of hearing. Their 1979 article showed how the barn owl utilizes unique anatomical features for creating a systematic internal representation of auditory space. This established the barn owl as a prime model for studying sensory systems.
