HST.750 Modeling Issues in Hearing and Speech


Class Info

Explores the theory and practice of scientific modeling in the context of auditory and speech biophysics. Based on seminar-style discussions of the research literature, subject draws on examples from hearing and speech (cochlear and vocal-fold mechanics) and explores general, meta-theoretical issues that transcend the particular subject matter. Examples include: What is a model? What is the process of model building? What are the different approaches to modeling? What is the relationship between theory and experiment? How are models tested? What constitutes a good model?

This class has HST.714, and HST.721 as prerequisites.

HST.750 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by C. A. Shera and J. R. Melcher.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
