Model of neural responses to amplitude-modulated tones (Nelson and Carney 2004)

"A phenomenological model with time-varying excitation and inhibition was developed to study possible neural mechanisms underlying changes in the representation of temporal envelopes along the auditory pathway. A modified version of an existing auditory-nerve model (Zhang et al., J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 109, 648–670 (2001) was used to provide inputs to higher hypothetical processing centers. Model responses were compared directly to published physiological data at three levels: the auditory nerve, ventral cochlear nucleus, and inferior colliculus. ..."

Region(s) or Organism(s): Inferior Colliculus; Superior colliculus

Cell Type(s): Auditory nerve

Model Concept(s): Synchronization; Audition

Simulation Environment: MATLAB (web link to model); C or C++ program (web link to model)
