Critical bands is a well-known psychophysical phenomenon to describe the mechanisms of sound frequency analysis [1–3]. Studies on the neurophysiological basis of perceptual critical bands (CBs) showed that the main properties of CBs are coded by the neural activity of the auditory midbrain [4–7]. Analysis of the shape of the receptive fields of inferior colliculus neurons in relation to neural critical bandwidths raised the hypothesis that inhibition is a main neurophysiological mechanism of… CONTINUE READING
