The psychophysical data on intensity discrimination indicate that certain schemes are unlikely as general intensity codes at the level of the auditory nerve and indirectly suggest that the most likely code is one based upon the firing rates of frequency-localized groups of fibers. A detection-theory analysis of a rate-based intensity code indicates that information from very few fibers can, if the information is appropriately combined, account for psychophysical discrimination even at high… CONTINUE READING
