Hi, could someone point me to a source where the properties of vector strength (or magnitude of the response fundamental frequency component) as a function of tone-frequency (above and below BF) are discussed ? Any location along the auditory neuraxis is fine, but auditory-nerve or cochlear nucleus would be ideal. For auditory nerve, I have seen tuning-curves based on mean-rate, of course, and also a few examples of phase-characteristics (Anderson et al).. and also many examples of maximum vector strength as a function of BF in the population (e.g. Johnson), but never tuning-curves (or response areas) based on synchrony. There is a bit in the classic Johnson paper (1980 JASA: Synchrony and Discharge-Rate.....), but I was wondering if someone knew of a more recent/substantial discussion. Thanks !! Suresh
