About this book

Introduction

This volume, Computational Models of the Auditory System, has as a systems approach where the focus is on studies which contribute to the big picture of hearing. In effect, the work covered in this volume, and the volume itself, builds a global model of audition. The chapters, rather than focusing on details of individual components of the hearing system, address the concerns of readers and researchers who want to know how the auditory system works as a whole.

About the Editors:

Raymond Meddis is Director of the Hearing Research Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at the University of Essex. Enrique A. Lopez-Poveda is Director of the Auditory Computation and Psychoacoustics Unit of the Neuroscience Institute of Castilla y León, University of Salamanca. Arthur N. Popper is Professor in the Department of Biology and Co-Director of the Center for Comparative and Evolutionary Biology of Hearing at the University of Maryland, College Park. Richard R. Fay is Director of the Parmly Hearing Institute and Professor of Psychology at Loyola University of Chicago.

About the series:

The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of synthetic reviews of fundamental topics dealing with auditory systems. Each volume is independent and authoritative; taken as a set, this series is the definitive resource in the field.
