Sound localization

Hi,

	I am studying the machinism of sound localization, which is 
thought to be accomplished by using the interaural temporal difference (ITD)
and interaural level difference (ILD). ITD is thought to be achieved by 
neuronal delay line, and will divide azimuth into several partitions.

	Does someone hear of any theory which accounts how the ILD is 
used along with ITD to divide the auditory space, especially how ILD is 
used to estimate the distance of sound source?

	Thanks for any input.
