Primitive neural mechanisms of auditory scene analysis.
My research searches for neurophysiological correlates of the cues necessary for the segregation and fusion of auditory objects. This work is carried out in close collaboration with psychophysicists and computer modellers with the long term aim of producing a multi-channel, physiologically based model to explain auditory perception in terms of neural information processing.
