The pathway for the transfer of information from the inner ear to auditory centers in the mam-malian brain is provided by the VIIIth cranial nerve. The neural signal transmitted on individual bers of this nerve (auditory neurons) has been studied by many researchers, with the goal of gaining insight into the mechanisms of information encoding 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]. This signal comprises a series of brief electrical action potentials (nerve spikes), whose amplitudes and energies are widely… CONTINUE READING
