is there a peer-reviewed reference for this statement?"

Very good question. A peer-reviewed report on this issue may still be
pending. But there is a conference report from 1996, which appeared as a
book chapter in 1997:

Biebel, U.W., Langner, G., 1997. Evidence for "pitch neurons" in the
auditory midbrain of chinchillas. In: Syka, J. (Ed.), Acoustic Signal
Processing in the Central Auditory System. Plenum Press, New York, pp.
