    Abstract

    There is a close correlation between the sound pressure of tone burst required to affect a primary auditory neuron at its characteristic frequency and that which will produce a detectable N1 response at the same frequency. Units with thresholds from 80–0 db SPL (recorded from damaged and undamaged cochleas) were 0–20 dB, respectively, more sensitive than the action potential response.
