"Understanding the Brain and How We Hear: Insights from Our Fish Ancestors"

Abstract:  Fish represent perhaps the earliest and simplest examples of how the vertebrate auditory system detects and identifies biologically relevant sounds that are critical for survival. Drs. Joseph Sisneros  (UW) and Richard Fay (Loyola Univeristy Chicago) will discuss studies that provide important insight into the origins, adaptations and evolution of the vertebrate auditory system for sound detection and communication.
