Dear list I remember once reading about an old (19th century?) study where "horns" inserted into the ears were used to improve auditory spatial localization in humans, as a result of the artificially increased distance between the ears. I now tried to look for this reference, but failed to find it. Does anybody out there know what i am talking about? Any pointers would be great Thanks, Noam Sobel UC Berkeley ____________________________________________________________________________________ Looking for earth-friendly autos?
