Auditory efferents and phase locking
Might anyone know of any physiological and/or psychophysical studies that
have investigated the role of the efferent system, specifically the MOCB,
on IHC neural phase locking/perception of temporal fine structure? For the
latter, I guess I'm looking for studies that might show changes in pitch
perception of sinusoids and/or harmonic tone complexes - preferably
containing only unresolved harmonics - and/or sound localisation abilities
in patients who have undergone vestibular (and efferent) nerve sectioning.
On a more general note, is there are good reason to suppose that MOCB
stimulation might improve the accuracy of IHC phase locking either in quiet
or in noise?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
