Abstract:

Studies involving the coding of complex stimuli in the cochlear nerve revealed that recovery functions for auidtory nerve discharge rate following one minute exposures to tones resulted in increased rapidity of recovery as test tone intensity increased. Recovery time-constant is a monotonic decreasing function of test intensity and exposure intensity. Recovery of human detection thresholds were measured following similar exposures and it was found that recovery time-constant is a monotonically decreasing function of test-tone intensity but is a non-monotonic function of exposure tone intensity.
