A smaller population are stellate cells, which are physiologically identified as 'chopper' units (Rhode et al. 1983), and are discussed in relation to speech coding in Sect. 1. 2 Poster oventral Cochlear Nucleus The posteroventral division (PVCN) contains relatively few PL units, but has a large concentration of chopper and 'onset' units. These neurons project through the intermediate acoustic stria (IAS) to the lateral lemniscus and inferior colliculus, nuclei of the upper auditory brainstem pathway.

In addition to these morphological differences, several functional properties distinguish the low- and high-SR groups. These pertain to response threshold, rapid adaptation, phase-locking, and suppression. High-SR fibers are typically 5-1 OdB more sensitive than their IOW-SR counterparts (Liberman 1978, Geisler et al. 1985). Some IOW-SR fibers are as much as 2030 dB less sensitive. Another difference concerns rapid adaptation. Adaptation refers to the decline in the instantaneous discharge rate over time.
