From sender to receiver: physics and sensory ecology of hearing in insects and vertebrates

Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Andrei Kozlov and Dr Joerg Albert.

Chicheley Hall

Hearing evolved independently in insects and vertebrates, and the gross anatomy of auditory systems can look very different indeed. For example, grasshoppers have ears on their legs. The biophysics of signal transduction in the ear and the neural processing of sound in the brain, however, share basic similarities across species. This meeting aims to explore and discuss these fundamental principles.

More information on the speakers and programme will be available soon. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
