Scientific summary

Auditory nerve fibers convey sound-information from sensory cells to brainstem through neural spike trains. Dysfunction in the sound encoding process leads to deafness and tinnitus. Here, we combine morphological, electrophysiological investigations with computational modeling to examine the mechanism of sound encoding in the auditory nerve fibers.
