Rodent studies using cortical removal techniques, ranging from transient deactivation to surgical ablation of cortex, reveal the importance of auditory cortical integrity in detecting short silent gaps in white noise (2-15 ms). Processing limits for longer gaps under decorticate conditions in rats remain unknown. Determining the temporal threshold for subcortical resolution of gaps in noise could, however, shed light on both normal hierarchical processing of acoustic temporal stimuli, as well… CONTINUE READING
