Functional circuits in the early auditory system: structure and function.
With this project we study several circuits and phenomena at the level of the auditory brainstem. The main experimental questions regard
- the processing of sounds that evoke a perception of pitch
- the effects of activation of the efferent system - which is a system by which the brain exerts control over the cochlea
- contextual effects in the dorsal cochlear nucleus
- sensitivity to binaural differences in the superior olivary complex.
