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?

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.
