Klump, Georg M. and Gleich, Otto (1991) Gap detection in the European starling (Sturnus vulgaris). III: Processing in the peripheral auditory system. Journal of Comparative Physiology A: Sensory, Neural, and Behavioral Physiology 168 (4), pp. 469-476.
Gap-detection thresholds were determined for single units in the cochlear ganglion and in auditory nerve fibres of the starling from responses to two broadband noise bursts separated by a temporal gap of between 0.4 and 204.8 ms. All 35 units showed a threshold within the range of gap sizes tested. The median minimum- detectable gap was 12.8 ms with the minimum being 1.6 ms. A multiple ...
