How do our brains translate sound (mere pressure fluctuations in the environment) to something meaningful? This is a complex question, but key to understanding any sensory process is understanding the neural activity in respective brain regions. My current interests focus on nuclei important for early stages of auditory processing -- sound localization circuitry in the chick auditory brainstem.
