Forward masking, as measured behaviorally, is defined as an increase in a signal's detection threshold resulting from a preceding masker. Previously, forward masking in the auditory nerve has been measured as a reduction in the neural response to a signal when preceded by a masker. However, detection threshold depends on both the magnitude of the response to the signal and the variance of the response. Thus changes in detectability cannot be inferred from response reduction alone. Relkin and… CONTINUE READING
