Talk by Leslie Smith

Wednesday 18 September - 2:30pm
Leslie Smith will give a talk in Cottrell 2A13 on “Why hearing is complicated- and why creating effective hearing aids is so difficult.”

Why hearing is a difficult problem, and the solutions that humans (and animals) take.

The mechanics of transforming sound into a neural code

 What can and does go wrong, and why hearing aids solve aspects of the problem.

And he will add a coda: pitch and sound: an auditory illusion.
