CRC 618 II: From Sensory Representation and Feature Extraction to Acoustic Object Recognition (SP B6)

How do small brains extract relevant cues from a signal and how are these algorithms physiologically realized? Using acoustic communication in crickets, these questions will be examined for features on two different time scales. These questions will be approached by a combination of theoretical models, behavioural experiments and electrophysiological approaches.
