In the diverse mechanosensory systems that animals evolved, the waveform of stimuli can be encoded by phase locking in spike trains of primary afferents. Coding of the fine structure of sounds via phase locking is thought to be critical for hearing. The upper frequency limit of phase locking varies across species and is unknown in humans. We applied a method developed previously, which is based on neural adaptation evoked by forward masking, to analyze mass potentials recorded on the cochlea… CONTINUE READING
