Auditory nerve model for predicting performance limits (Heinz et al 2001)

A computational auditory nerve (AN) model was developed for use in modeling psychophysical experiments with normal and impaired human listeners. In this phenomenological model, many physiologically vulnerable response properties associated with the cochlear amplifier are represented by a single nonlinear control mechanism, see paper for details. Several model versions are described that can be used to evaluate the relative effects of these nonlinear properties.
