The synapse between hair cells and auditory nerve fibers provides precise temporal information about acoustic events, such as transients in complex stimuli and the phase of sound waveforms at frequencies up to the kHz range. To accomplish these tasks, the synapse produces a high rate of spontaneous and stimulus-driven discharge in auditory-nerve fibers, with irregular spike trains and little or... More >
