Driven responses of cat auditory-nerve fibers to long-duration characteristic-frequency (CF) tones could decrease substantially over time periods ranging from seconds to minutes. In extreme cases, the discharge rate could fall before the pre-stimulation spontaneous rate (SR). Reductions in response were characterized by two processes, each of which followed… CONTINUE READING
