The timing of the first, and sometimes only, spike of auditory neurons evoked by an acoustic stimulus depends on a variety of parameters. Recent studies have suggested that several of these dependencies originate from processes in the first synapse of the auditory system and that first-spike timing is further modified by central processing. The variation of first-spike latency with stimulus parameters contains considerable information about those parameters, as recently explored in several… CONTINUE READING
