Understanding human perception is at the forefront of scientific research goals today. The development of robots, virtual reality, speech coders and speech recognition devices depends on a good understanding of how we hear. The cochlea is the part of the inner ear that converts acoustic signals to the neural code that conveys auditory information to the brain. Modeling the function of the cochlea has been an active area of research since the development of the digital computer, yet several mysteries remain.
