Re: Cochlear mechanics

I agree that the subject is important, for if we don't understand how the
ear works at a fundamental level, how can we formulate adequate models of
higher level percepts?

However, I believe that circumscribing the range of discussions on this list
probably isn't necessary. People who aren't interested in a certain subject
heading can just push the Delete button, as they always have (that's what
subject headers are for). However, if enough people thought a second list
was a good idea, I would go along with the majority's wishes.

What do other list members think?

Dear List,

I believe that we have now heard most views on the very important issue of
cochlear mechanics, culminating in the excellent summary by Eckard
Blumschein.  I wonder whether now isn't the time for those researchers
who want to continue the discussion to do so among themselves, perhaps on a
new sublist, as suggested by Jont Allen, where the issues could get debated
in full at a technical level which is probably more detailed than the rest
of us need to know.
