We have measured the responses of inferior colliculus neurons in the anesthetized guinea pig to signals which in human psychophysical experiments reveal a release of masking as a result of binaural processing (the binaural masking level difference: BMLD). More specifically we have used diotic tones at 500 Hz (So) masked by noise that is either identical at the two ears (No) or inverted in one ear (Npi). This combination of signals and noise maskers produces a prominent masking release in humans… CONTINUE READING
