A lot of work is done to understand the bottom-up pathways in the brain. This summer’s work looked at top-down influences. Just how do auditory imagination and priming affect what we hear? More importantly, can we see evidence of priming or auditory imaginations via either psychoacoustics or with EEG measurements? The answer is a tentative yes.
At this week’s Hearing Seminar, I want to describe several pilot experiments that were done over the summer. This work was part of the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition workshop that is held every summer in Telluride, Co. It’s a rather scenic location, but is totally inundated with auditory perception nerds (and others) for three weeks of working workshop. Science in the mountains. Imagine that.
