Auditory temporal resolution in birds: discrimination of harmonic complexes.

Dooling, Robert J. ; Leek, Marjorie R. ; Gleich, Otto ; Dent, Micheal L.


The ability of three species of birds to discriminate among selected harmonic complexes with fundamental frequencies varying from 50 to 1000 Hz was examined in behavioral experiments. The stimuli were synthetic harmonic complexes with waveform shapes altered by component phase selection, holding spectral and intensive information constant. Birds were able to discriminate between waveforms with ...
