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.

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.
