Discharge patterns of cat auditory nerve fibres stimulated by constant-current biphasic pulses have been previously described (Javel et al., in press). However details of neural activity elicited central to the auditory nerve by such pulses are not yet determined. The scope of this study was to describe the activity elicited by such pulses, in the auditory neurones thought to receive direct auditory nerve fibre input -those of the ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) exhibiting a "primary-like" (PRI-like) response. The objective was to compare the electrically-and acoustically-elicited responses of these neurones. The observed differences will be used to direct future efforts in the choice of electrical stimuli which would produce discharge patterns more akin to those elicited acoustically.
