limits of phase locking

A while back there was a discussion on the limits of phase locking in the
auditory nerve.  A limit of 4-6 kHz was quoted for the cat, and 9 kHz for
the barn owl.

I just came across a paper by Teich, Khanna and Guiney that puts the limit
at at least 18 kHz in the cat.  They used a special timing circuit that
triggered on spike peaks rather than shoulders.

characteristics and synchrony in primary auditory-nerve fibers in response
to pure-tone stimuli,"  J. Statistical Physics 70, 257-279.
