HST.723 Neural Coding and Perception of Sound


Class Info

Neural structures and mechanisms mediating the detection, localization, and recognition of sounds. Discussion of how acoustic signals are coded by auditory neurons, the impact of these codes on behavioral performance, and the circuitry and cellular mechanisms underlying signal transformations. Topics include temporal coding, neural maps and feature detectors, learning and plasticity, and feedback control. General principles are conveyed by theme discussions of auditory masking, sound localization, musical pitch, cochlear implants, and auditory scene analysis. Follows Harvard FAS calendar.

This class has no prerequisites.

HST.723 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by D. Polley, J. Melcher, J. J. Guinan, J. McDermott, B. Delgutte and M. C. Brown.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in MEEI-4TH.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

In the Spring 2014 Subject Evaluations, HST.723 was rated 5.0 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the HST.723 - Neural Coding and Perception of Sound site or on the HST.723 Stellar site.
