Human auditory periphery model: cochlea, IHC-AN, auditory brainstem responses (Verhulst et al 2018)

The human auditory periphery model can simulate single-unit response of basilar-membrane vibration, IHC receptor potential, instantaneous AN/CN/IC firing rates, as well as population responses such as otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem responses. The neuron models (IHC, AN,CN,IC) can be run independently to relate their responses to electrophysiology, or be simulated as part of the human auditory periphery.

Cell Type(s): Cochlea hair inner GLU cell; Cochlear nucleus bushy GLU cell; Auditory nerve; Brainstem neuron

Simulation Environment: Python; MATLAB

Implementer(s): Verhulst, Sarah [s.verhulst at]; Altoé, Alessandro
