Mistuning detection performance of ferrets in a go/no-go task

Abstract:

The harmonic structure of sounds is an important grouping cue in auditory scene analysis. The ability of ferrets to detect mistuned harmonics was measured using a go/no-go task paradigm. Psychometric functions plotting sensitivity as a function of degree of mistuning were used to evaluate behavioral performance using signal detection theory. The mean (± sem) threshold for mistuning detection was 0.8±0.1 Hz, with sensitivity indices and reaction times depending on the degree of mistuning. T...
