Electrical stimulation of the human auditory system produces different patterns of spatial and temporal neural activity than those that occur in the normal, acoustically stimulated system. Quantitative comparison of psychophysical performance measured with acoustic and electrical stimulation may allow us to infer the physiological locus of perceptual… (More)
