Postnatal development of the phase-locked response to low frequency tones of auditory nerve fibers in the cat.


The maturation of the auditory nerve's ability to encode temporal information in an acoustic signal was studied in young kittens, 7 to 23 days old, and in adult cats by measuring the degree to which auditory nerve fiber responses are synchronized (phase locked) to low frequency tones. The major findings include the following. In 7- to 10-day-old kittens… (More)
