Prerequisite: PSYCH 160A or BIO SCI 93

Restriction: Cognitive Sciences Majors have first consideration for enrollment. Biological Sciences Majors have first consideration for enrollment. Psychology Majors have first consideration for enrollment.
The Center for Hearing Research faculty team-teach the auditory system from cells to psychophysics, cochlea to the cortex, basic science to clinical. The format is primarily lectures. We will provide a foundation for students who are advanced in their own discipline (e.g., biology, cognitive science) and wish to learn more about hearing. The course will provide an overview of brain mechanisms of hearing, including simple sounds, speech, and music. We begin with sound itself and look at processing by the ear, central auditory pathways, auditory cortex, and beyond. Also auditory development, learning, and clinical issues.
