Neural coding in the auditory system
Living systems are never at rest. They are highly dynamic in order to perceive the ever-changing world. In the Barral lab, we are generally interested in the interface between biophysics and neurosciences and more specifically in the biological strategies that organs and organisms have developed to actively sense their environment. These strategies are best illustrated in the sense of hearing. We studied this issue from a physical perspective at the level of the peripheral auditory system and at the level of the central nervous system.
We are currently looking for creative and motivated postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students to join our team. Please see Positions Available and contact Jérémie Barral.
