ZILANY2014_INNERHAIRCELLS - Calculates the inner hair cell potential


[ANresp,fc] = zilany2014_innerhaircells(stim, fc, nrep, tdres, reptime, cohc, cihc, species);

Input parameters

stim Pressure waveform of stimulus (timeseries)
fc nerve fiber frequency [Hz]
nrep Number of repetitions for the mean rate, rate variance & psth calculation. Default is 1.
tdres simulation time resolution, fs_mod^(-1)
reptime overall repetition time of the stimulus with pauses
cohc OHC scaling factor: 1 denotes normal OHC function (default); 0 denotes complete OHC dysfunction.
cihc IHC scaling factor: 1 denotes normal IHC function (default); 0 denotes complete IHC dysfunction.
species can be human (2) or cat (1)

Output parameters

vihc Output from inner hair cells (IHCs) in Volts
c1 chirp filter output
c2 chirp filter output


zilany2014_innerhaircells(...) returns the innerhaircell potential for one specific frequency/nerve fiber
