The acoustic frequency selectivity of over 500 saccular nerve fibers of the goldfish was studied using automated threshold tracking based on spike rate increments defined statistically. Saccular fibers of the goldfish show great variation in (1) best sensitivity (-26 to + 35 dB re: 1 dyn/cm2), (2) best frequency (below 100 to 1770 Hz), (3) spontaneous rate (0 to over 200 spikes/s), (4) spontaneous type (silent, regular, irregular, burst), and (5) degree of tuning (Q 10 dB from less than 0.1 to… CONTINUE READING
