The role of the inner and outer hair cells of the cochlea in frequency discrimination and critical band measurements is not clearly understood. There is, however, evidence for an interaction between the hair cells in threshold determinations (1) and frequency selectivity (2). Furthermore, although there is increasing evidence that a place theory is more importance than a periodicity theory in frequency coding the situation is still not clear, and the role of the inner and outer hair cells in frequency discrimination and critical band measurements should provide additional evidence to help clarify the situation.
