Gap-detection thresholds were determined for single units in the cochlear ganglion and in auditory nerve fibres of the starling from responses to two broad-band noise bursts separated by a temporal gap of between 0.4 and 204.8 ms. All 35 units showed a threshold within the range of gap sizes tested. The median minimum-detectable gap was 12.8 ms with the minimum being 1.6 ms. A multiple regression analysis revealed that the size of the minimum-detectable gap was not significantly correlated with… CONTINUE READING
