Rate-versus level functions (RI functions) for characteristic frequency (CF) stimulation were measured from primary auditory nerve fibres from different spontaneous rate categories in the guinea pig cochlea. Attention was focussed on those fibres that showed clear breakpoints in their RI functions (sloping-saturation fibres). A statistical curve fitting procedure to an empirical equation was used to provide a quantitative estimate of the breakpoint position in individual fibres. It was found… CONTINUE READING
