Hello, I am not sure I see the need for the volley principal. If the neurally transduced basilar/organ of the Corti signals are frequency specific, then surely a neural impulse cognitively implies a frequency ? It is also known that neural firing rate (in afferents) is largely determined by SPL or intensity. So a combination of frequency selectivity (neuron selection) and firing rate determine sound frequency and intensity. Does anyone agree ?
