Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment how is tone volume encoded?
There are going to be a lot of projections in the other direction from A1 to the MGN as well, which would be fascinating to study in that regard. I wish I had a ready answer for you, but we'll see if anyone can come up with one.

comment how is tone volume encoded?
Fantastic question. I think the answer is going to lie in the association cortices, since this is as much a tactile and proprioceptive issue as it is an auditory one. That's just a gut feeling, but there must be literature on this somewhere.
