--=-=-= Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable Hi all, we would like to announce *cochlea* -- a collection of inner ear models in Python. It was developed in the group of Werner Hemmert [1] at the Technische Universit=C3=A4t M=C3=BCnchen. After a few years of development, we decided that it is stable and would like to contribute it to the auditory community. The main features of the package are: - simple to use (each model is implemented as a single Python function: sound in, spikes out) - fast (you can generate responses of hundreds or even thousands of nerve fibers) - all models have the same interface (easy to make comparisons and pick the one that best suits your needs) - up-to-date (recent models included) Currently implemented models are: - Zilany, M. S., Bruce, I. C., & Carney, L. H. (2014). Updated parameters and expanded simulation options for a model of the auditory periphery. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 135(1), 283-286. - Zilany, M. S., Bruce, I. C., Nelson, P. C., & Carney, L. H. (2009). A phenomenological model of the synapse between the inner hair cell and auditory nerve: long-term adaptation with power-law dynamics. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 126(5), 2390-2412. - Holmberg, M. (2007). Speech Encoding in the Human Auditory Periphery: Modeling and Quantitative Assessment by Means of Automatic Speech Recognition. PhD thesis, Technical University Darmstadt. - MATLAB Auditory Periphery by Meddis et al. (external model, not implemented in the package, but easily accessible through matlab_wrapper). We are really grateful to the authors of those models for allowing us to use their code it in *cochlea*. We release the package under the GNU General Public License, so that you are free to copy, use and modify the code. We also encourage you to contribute back your changes. The code is distributed on GitHub [2] and the package/documentation are hosted on the Python Package Index [3]. Check also our demo [4]! If you would like to give a feedback, have questions or found some problem, do not hesitate to email me or open an issue on GitHub [2].
