Middle ear hearing devices and photonic contact hearing: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | November 24 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall


Sunil Puria, Earlens Corporation

Department of Psychology


The broad frequency ranges unique to mammalian hearing provide them with important means for localizing sound, which enables them to understand speech in different environments. However, hearing aids only provide amplification to about 5 kHz. I will describe an extended-bandwidth non-surgical hearing aid design in which light is used to wirelessly transmit both the power and signal to a tympanic...   More >

Cortical field specializations for encoding shape and rhythm of sound: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | December 1 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 3105 Tolman Hall


Heather Read, Psychology; Behavioral Neuroscience, Univ. of Connecticut, Storrs

Department of Psychology


Identifying the content and quality of sounds relies on the ability to perceive and discriminate shape and periodicity temporal cues. However, how higher level forebrain areas represent temporal sound cues remains a mystery. According to one framework, primary (A1) and secondary auditory cortical fields represent temporal cues with “spike-timing precision” and spike rate codes, respectively....   More >
