Speech coding in the auditory nerve: V. Vowels in background noise.

Abstract

Responses of auditory-nerve fibers to steady-state, two-formant vowels in low-pass background noise (S/N = 10 dB) were obtained in anesthetized cats. For fibers over a wide range of characteristic frequencies (CFs), the peaks in discharge rate at the onset of the vowel stimuli were nearly eliminated in the presence of noise. In contrast, strong effects of… (More)
