From the Cochlea to the Cortex and Back

  • Philip H. Smith
  • George A. Spirou
Part of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research book series (SHAR, volume 15)


Among the many unique features of the auditory system one of the more notable is the large number of processing centers (cell groups) interposed between the system’s periphery and its cortex. Our main purpose in this chapter is to build upon the first 2 volumes in this series (Popper and Fay 1992; Webster et al. 1992) by highlighting progress made over the last decade in understanding these structures of the auditory pathway, especially when this information can be related to functional hypotheses about particular cell groups or neural circuits.
