Abstract The tonotopic organization of the Orthopteran auditory pathway is but one example of topographic representation in nervous systems. However, it may prove a prime model for understanding the creation of more complex neuronal architecture. The pathway is extremely simple, containing as few as 20 receptors, each individually tuned to a specific sound frequency, and a small number of interneurons. Physiological recordings can be made from each element in the pathway and from individuals at various stages of neural development. This review describes the tonotopic organization of the auditory organs and primary auditory neuropiles of Orthopterans, and discusses the significance of this organization for auditory processing.
