Many auditory theorists consider the temporal adaptation of the auditory nerve a key aspect of speech coding in the auditory periph(cid:173) ery. Experiments with models of auditory localization and pitch perception also suggest temporal adaptation is an important ele(cid:173) ment of practical auditory processing. I have designed, fabricated, and successfully tested an analog integrated circuit that models many aspects of auditory nerve response, including temporal adap(cid:173) tation.
