Reverse Engineering the Cetacean Ear to Extract Audiograms
The cochlear frequency-place map is believed to be an important determinant of the frequencies that a species can hear as well as the bandwidth of cochlear filters. Both features impact an animal’s ability to detect biologically significant sounds in noise. The cochlear frequency-place map is created in part by a stiffness gradient in the basilar membrane (BM) in which stiff regions respond best to high frequencies and more compliant regions respond best to low frequencies.
