Contrast gain control in the central auditory system

Abstract:

The auditory system must represent sounds with a wide range of statistical properties. One important property is the spectrotemporal contrast in the acoustic environment. The level of some sounds varies only a little over frequency and time, while the level of other sounds can vary a lot. This raises a contrast problem for neural coding: auditory neurons, with a limited dynamic range of firing rates, must be able to efficiently encode the sound level fluctuations in both low and high contr...
