What is DSAM?
The Development System for Auditory Modelling (DSAM) is a computational
library designed specifically for producing time-sampled auditory system simulations.
It brings together many established auditory models under a flexible programming platform;
DSAM includes seven different auditory nerve models (published, 1986-2007), neural cell
models, including an efficient implementation of the Hodgkin-Huxley formalism, many
utility and analysis facilities, threaded parallel processing for accelerated operation
on multi-core systems as well as allowing input/output support for most sound file formats.
Why do you need DSAM?
It supports applications like SAMS that run well known auditory models
like the gammatone auditory filterbank, the Meddis hair cell, the Auditory
Image Model (AIM) and others."
This site gives you access to the DSAM code, applications written
using DSAM and links to related software.
DSAM is an open source project available from
sourceforge. It was originally developed at the Centre for the
Neural Basis of Hearing (CNBH):
Department of Psychology, University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester,
Physiology Dept., University of Cambridge, Downings Street, Cambridge
