Abstract

In man, the scalp-recorded 'Frequency-following response' (FFR) can be well observed only at fairly high levels of stimulation. As a consequence, it is difficult to ascertain whether the low or the high-frequency channels of the peripheral auditory system mediate this response. It is shown that the sensitivity of the recording method is considerably increased when the averaged recorded waveform is subjected to frequency analysis. Results from experiments with high-pass masking noise become unequivocal and they suggest that the low-level FFR is caused by nervous activity arising in the apical part of the cochlea and mediated by the low-frequency in the brain stem.

Auditory Perception

Auditory perception is the ability to receive and interpret information attained by the ears. Here is the latest research on factors and underlying mechanisms that influence auditory perception.
