The processing of temporal fine-structure information in the human auditory system
Magezi, David Amooti. (2010) The processing of temporal fine-structure information in the human auditory system. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The auditory nerve conveys fine-grained temporal information that reflects individual cycles of the basilar membrane vibration. The current project is concerned with how this temporal fine-structure information is processed in the human auditory system. Integration of fine-structure temporal information across the ears (binaural processing) plays a crucial role in sound localisation and signal detection in noise. However, in monaural processing, the role of temporal fine-structure information remains uncertain, because spectral information is usually also available.
