Neural response to very low-frequency sound in the avian cochlear nucleus


Recordings were made in the chick cochlear nucleus from neurons that are sensitive to very low frequency sound. The tuning, discharge rate response and phase-locking properties of these units are described in detail. The principal conclusions are: 1. Low frequency (LF) units respond to sound frequencies between 10–800 Hz. Best thresholds average 60 dB SPL… (More)
