We are delighted to invite you for a series of seminars about hearing, between January and May 2006. The topics will include neurophysiology of the peripheral auditory system, pitch and loudness perception, auditory prostheses and cochlear implants, the perception of musical and communication sounds. The talks will be given by invited professors who are visiting the Audition lab during this period.
Talks will be in English. The scheduled durations include a large part for discussion and debate, the actual seminars will usually finish earlier. Informations about the venues are provided at the bottom of the page. We will update these informations if necessary, so do not hesitate to visit this page again from time to time.
The seminars are open to all. Feel welcome to join!
