Paper Abstract

Auditory perception neurons also called inner hair cells (IHC) transform the mechanical movements of the basilar membrane into electrical impulses. The impulse coding of the neurons is the main information carrier in the auditory process and is the basis for improvements of cochlea implants as well as for low rate, high quality speech processing and compression. This paper shows how to compute the speech signal from the neural firing based on the analysis of the interspike interval histogram. This new approach solves problems which other standard analysis methods do no solve sufficiently well.
