Is Basilar Membrane Tuning the Same as Neural Tuning -- Where Do We Stand?
One of the most important problems which still remains unsolved in cochlear theory is explaining the sharpness of tuning of the neurally measured response in the base of the cochlea. To solve this problem we must answer the following questions
