PERIODICITY THEORY

17

the theory posing that pitch is encoded within the temporal anatomy of the neural reactions to noises, particularly in the timing of neural discharges, or occasional noises, those which elicit strong pitch, the discharges of auditory nerve fibers generally take place at integer multiples of the time of the noise.

PERIODICITY THEORY: "The periodicity theory should not be confused with the prodicity theorem, which pertains more so to math than science."
