Binaural Interaction Models and Mechanisms
Binaural interaction models can be developed at the psycho-acoustic level or at the level of a single nerve cell with inputs from both cochleae. Our goal is to encompass both levels of modeling within a single framework, or at least to develop models on both levels that are compatible.
