Introduction to Auditory Physiology. May serve as preparation for a Research Module in this area.

Upon successful completion of this course, students
  • have profound knowledge on auditory sensory processing at several levels (including cochlear transduction mechanisms, central auditory processing) 
  • have basic knowledge of the large range of techniques used in auditory research
  • are able to read and critically report to others on an original research paper in auditory neuroscience
  • are able to research and review a specific topic in auditory neuroscience
Modulinhalte
One week introductory block course, comprised of a lecture series and matching seminar that emphasizes discussion.
Topics: 
Hair cells: structure, transduction mechanism, receptor potential, synaptic transmission
Basilar papilla / cochlea: structure, micromechanics, amplification; otoacoustic emissions
Auditory nerve: phase locking, rate coding. Excitation patterns
Ascending auditory pathways: wiring, principles of excitation/inhibition, examples of cellular/molecular specialisations
Sound localisation in birds and mammals
Central auditory processing: imaging techniques, auditory streams, cortex, primates
Relation between psychophysics and neurophysiology

The introductory block is followed by a supervised literature search and individually written term paper on a specific topic in auditory neuroscience.
