Animals must both recognize and localize the sensory signals essential for their survival and reproduction. Certain cues contained in a signal define its identity and location. Such cues include, for example, the temporal pattern of song for species recognition in crickets and binaural disparities for sound localization in owls. One can predict potential cues and the methods of using them from consideration of the physical attributes of the signal for the task. The discovery of the real cue that is used by the animal, however, requires study of the animal's response to different potential cues.
