Paradoxical relationship between frequency selectivity and threshold sensitivity during auditory-nerve fiber development.

Abstract

The acquisition of adult-like frequency selectivity is generally assumed to be the tightly coupled to improvements in threshold sensitivity during cochlear development. In this study, frequency versus threshold (tuning) curves obtained from 1108 auditory-nerve fibers were used to investigate the relationship between tuning and threshold at characteristic… (More)
