High-performance computing models of inner-ear functionality

Project Details


This project was funded internally by the University of Edinburgh's CHSS Challenge Investment Fund. The total award was £14,961.50, for a 6 month project.

The 'plain english' abstract is here:
This project will implement a computer model of the inner-ear part of the human auditory system using the parallel computing expertise at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC). The project will combine existing expertise in computational modelling of the human auditory system (Dr Newton, the main applicant) with the world-class high-performance computing know-how and technology at the EPCC (Mr Kavoussanakis, the co-applicant). The overall objective will be to pilot and test a new high-speed computational platform that can be used in the future, alongside clinical work, for further research into the origin of normal and impaired hearing function.
