Many behaviorally important sounds consist of a series of discrete acoustic events. In initial studies we used two-tone sequences and found proactive (i.e. effects on the consecutive tone) and retroactive (i.e. effects on the preceding tone) interactions between the responses to the two tones. The effects are either inhibitory or facilitatory and depend on the frequency and time separation of the two tones. In ongoing research we investigate neuronal mechanisms underlying the categorical perception of frequency contours in animals that have learned to discriminate rising from falling contour.
