  • An analytical approach for quantifying the information in auditory-nerve (AN) fiber responses for the task of level discrimination is described. A simple analytical model for AN responses is extended to include temporal response properties, including the nonlinear-phase effects of the cochlear amplifier. Use of simple analytical models for AN discharge patterns allows quantification of the contributions of level-dependent aspects of the patterns to level discrimination. Specifically, the… CONTINUE READING
