Although many properties of click responses can be accounted for by a single, frequency-dispersive traveling wave exciting a single, characteristic-frequency (CF) resonance, some properties, such as waxing and waning cannot. Joint time-frequency distributions (TFDs) were used to help understand click responses of cat single auditory-nerve (AN) fibers (CFs<4(More)
There has been no systematic study of auditory-nerve-fiber (ANF) responses to high-level clicks despite the advantages of clicks in revealing the natural resonances of a system. Cat single ANFs were studied using clicks up to 120 dB pSPL. Peri-stimulus-time (PST) histograms of responses were corrected for refractory effects, and compound PST (cPST)(More)
Despite the insights obtained from click responses, the effects of medial-olivocochlear (MOC) efferents on click responses from single-auditory-nerve (AN) fibers have not been reported. We recorded responses of cat single AN fibers to randomized click level series with and without electrical stimulation of MOC efferents. MOC stimulation inhibited (1) the(More)
