The limited effect of SNHL on RLFs is consistent with the standard model for how BM compression affects RLF shapes (Sachs and Abbas 1974; Yates 1990). Sharply saturating RLFs (often lowthreshold, high-SR fibers) should not be affected by impairment because the BM response is linear at low levels. Sloping-saturation RLFs (often higher-threshold, low-SR fibers) should become steeper, but not near threshold. 42 Michael G. Heinz et al. Fig. 2. Rate-level slopes for broadband noise for the three AN populations.

Am. 77, 1505-1515. 38 Mary Florentine, Søren Buus, and Mindy Rosenberg Reply: Regarding the speed-accuracy tradeoff, an analysis shows that the false-alarm rates were low—ranging from zero in over 900 trials to seven in just over 800 trials.

Recent psychophysical results challenge some of the classic concepts of recruitment (Buus and Florentine 2001), and suggest that the dynamic range of loudness is also reduced. These results have potentially significant implications for hearing aids that have renewed an interest in how SNHL affects level encoding in the auditory nerve (AN). The present study compares several AN response properties related to level encoding in normal-hearing cats and in cats with a noise-induced hearing loss. 2 General methods Single-unit AN responses were measured as a function of level in 1-dB steps in anesthetized (pentobarbital) cats.
