We measured behavioral sensitivity to binaural spatial cues at different sound frequencies in ferrets. Our data are consistent with the duplex theory, which states that low- and high-frequency sounds are respectively localized using interaural time and level differences, and provide insights into the neural and acoustical factors involved. Training can improve sensitivity to low-frequency interaural level differences, which could benefit rehabilitation strategies following hearing loss.
