Open to: Academic

Speaker information

Paul Chadderton, Imperial

The auditory system is excellent at grouping signals into separate objects and can do so using a small number of cues. One phenomenon that uses such grouping processes is co-modulation masking release (CMR), whereby coherent amplitude modulation of sound across many frequencies (e.g. a broadband sound) increases the detectability of a concurrent signal (e.g. a pure tone). In this talk, I will describe how such cues influence the activity of single neurons and populations in mouse primary auditory cortex (A1).
