    Analysis of the IHC Adaptation for the Anthropomorphic Speech Processing Systems

    We analyse the properties of the physiological model of the adaptive behaviour of the chemical synapse between inner hair cells (IHC) and auditory neurons. On the basis of the performed analysis, we propose eq...

    Neuromimetic Sound Representation for Percept Detection and Manipulation

    The acoustic wave received at the ears is processed by the human auditory system to separate different sounds along the intensity, pitch, and timbre dimensions. Conventional Fourier-based signal processing, wh...

    Source Separation with One Ear: Proposition for an Anthropomorphic Approach

    We present an example of an anthropomorphic approach, in which auditory-based cues are combined with temporal correlation to implement a source separation system. The auditory features are based on spectral am...
