Across-species differences in pitch perception are consistent with differences in cochlear filtering

Kerry M M Walker, Ray Gonzalez, Joe Z Kang, Josh H McDermott & Andrew J King
Pitch perception is critical for recognizing speech, music and animal vocalizations, but its neurobiological basis remains unsettled, in part because of divergent results across species. We investigated whether species-specific differences exist in the cues used to perceive pitch and whether these can be accounted for by differences in the auditory periphery. Ferrets accurately generalized pitch discriminations to untrained stimuli whenever temporal envelope cues were robust in the probe sounds, but not when resolved harmonics were...
