The Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus) has become a frequently used animal model in auditory neuroscience. Here, we investigated the frequency-related topography of connections of the primary auditory cortical field (AI) with subcortical structures of the auditory system in this species. We found topographic, most likely frequency-matched (tonotopic) connections as well as non-topographic (non-tonotopic) connections. The former may serve for conservation of frequency-specific information in the respective target structures of AI, whereas the latter could be involved in frequency-integration processes.
