In neuron models consisting of spectro-temporal filtering and spiking
nonlinearity, we found that the binaural structure induced by spatialized sounds is mapped to synchrony patterns that
depend on source location rather than on source signal.
Location-specific synchrony patterns would then result in the
activation of location-specific assemblies of postsynaptic neurons.
We designed a spiking neuron model which exploited
this principle to locate a variety of sound sources in a virtual acoustic environment using measured human head-related
