Comparative Auditory Research

  • Richard R. Fay
Part of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research book series (SHAR, volume 4)

Abstract

The chapters of this volume review what is understood about the similarities and differences among mammals in their sense of hearing, defined behaviorally, and the structures of the ear that condition and transform sound wave-forms before they are transduced into patterns of neural activity.

Keywords

Sound Source Basilar Membrane Tuning Curve Sound Localization Interaural Time Difference 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
