European funding for excellent research on hearing

MBExC speaker Tobias Moser, director of the Institute for Auditory Neuroscience at the University Medical Center Göttingen, received an ERC Advanced Grant. The European Research Council (ERC) supports his research project „Solving the dynamic range problem of hearing: deciphering and harnessing cochlear mechanisms of sound intensity coding (DynaHear)“ over five years with 2,5 million euros. DynaHear promises to fundamentally improve the understanding of the neuronal coding of sound intensities in hearing and of reasons for hearing impairment.
