Wait a minute. If the position measurements are neither head nor
body-centered, how are they centered? There must be some point
(0,0,0), right? And object-centered coordinates would not be
very useful if the object is, say, a fly.
One more question: The wet network you are referring to, is
related to hearing, I guess?
I can offer two more links:
