The development of the acoustics of the auditory periphery of the ferret was examined by measuring the spectral transfer functions (STFs) and the directional characteristics of the outer ears of animals ranging in age from postnatal day 32 (P32) to P54. Using an impulse response technique the STFs were obtained from up to 250 locations throughout free space. The directional responses were calculated for frequencies between 1 kHz and 30 kHz. The low frequency roll-off of the STF decreased with… CONTINUE READING
