Xviii. Communications Biophysics A. Spontaneous Activity of Single Units in the Cochlear Nucleus


Single units in the nervous system frequently exhibit spikelike discharges in the absense of any controllable stimulation presented externally to the organism. The nature of these "spontaneous" discharges suggests that statistical descriptions might well reveal some basic properties of the units. In recent studies of the cochlear nucleus we have encountered… (More)
