"A phenomenological model with time-varying excitation and inhibition was developed to study
possible neural mechanisms underlying changes in the representation of temporal envelopes along
the auditory pathway. A modified version of an existing auditory-nerve model (Zhang et al., J.
Acoust. Soc. Am. 109, 648–670 (2001) was used to provide inputs to higher hypothetical
Model responses were compared directly to published physiological data at three
levels: the auditory nerve, ventral cochlear nucleus, and inferior colliculus.
