The neural basis of low pitch was investigated in the present study by recording a brainstem potential from the scalp of human subjects during presentation of complex tones which evoke a variable sensation of pitch. The potential recorded, the frequency-following response (FFR), reflects the temporal discharge activity of auditory neurons in the upper… CONTINUE READING
