The results confirmed the key concept of frequency dispersion by the organ of Corti (so called 'tonotopy'), as was also predicted by Helmholtz resonators.

For biomimetic artificial basilar membrane (ABM), the frequency classification of basilar membranes depends on the principle of tonotopy [10-12].
The increased precision in locating the activated regions can potentially improve the fMRI mapping of visual cortices [19], tonotopy [20-22], and somatotopy [23].

The period between P11 and P13 is often stressed out as the most important period for the development of AC, and in particular, for tonotopy. However, numerous works showed that also exposure which starts markedly later (e.g., on P21) profoundly influences development of the auditory system [11, 30-34].

Consistent with clinical data, we found that SS enhanced soundevoked responses and altered the tonotopy of neurons in the lateral amygdala (LA) [56].
In our previous work with this model, we found that primary auditory cortical areas of ferrets rewired with ectopic visual inputs (cross-modal auditory cortex, abbreviated as XMAC) retain substantial auditory function, but sound frequency tuning and tonotopy are compromised [19, 20]much as can occur in humans with peripheral hearing loss [21].
