Recordings from superior olivary neurons, which receive information from both ears simultaneously, show that the discharge frequency of these ceils can vary over an approximately four- or fivefold range as the phase of the signal presented to one ear (relative to the other) shifts by 180 degrees. In terms of time difference, a delay in the signal to one ear of approximately 1 msec is adequate to change the firing rate of the cell by perhaps five times, and a delay of 50 or 100 μsec is adequate to cause a noticeable change in frequency.

Purkinje cells offer perhaps the best example of an instance where activation of a single incoming axon produces a profound effect on the neuron's behavior (see Eccles, Ito, & Szentägothai, 1967). As a rule, each olivary neuron makes synaptic contact with only one cerebellar Purkinje cell, and, as indicated previously each discharge of the olivary neuron causes a rapid burst of action potentials to reach the synapses on a Purkinje cell. * The encoding scheme indicated here does, in fact, cause some filtering of the encoded signals, but this may be neglected for present purposes.
