Abstract : Results from measurement of effects of sounds of varing frequency and loudness on the firing rate in auditory nerves correlates well with hearing effects on humans after exposure to loud sounds. Four papers have been prepared and two more are in preparation on the results obtained measuring the nerve responses in the auditory nerve in response to controlled tones. The results have made an advance in understanding how the ear encodes signals for transmission by the auditory nerves to the brain. (Author)
