Function of Cochlear Nucleus cell types

I've been trying to understand and summarize what's known or theorized about the function of various cochlear nucleus cell types.  There's a lot of info on response patterns to tone bursts, speech, tones in noise, etc., and a lot known about where some of the different cell types are in the CN and where they project to, but I'm having trouble finding much on the "why" or the signal processing function that these different patterns serve.  The synchrony-enhancing bushy cells project to the olivary complex, so it makes sense that they are part of the binaural localization function.  But what about all the others?  Where can I find good theories about these?
