We’re happy to announce that our colleague, Doma Horváth, successfully defended his public PhD thesis on "Investigating Information Coding in the Auditory Midbrain", on the 6th of December, 2023. Doma's thesis explores how the auditory midbrain, a part of the brain that processes sound information, encodes the location and intensity of low-frequency sounds. He used electrophysiological recordings from the inferior colliculus, a nucleus in the auditory midbrain, to measure the neural responses to different sound stimuli. He found that the interaural time difference (ITD), which is the difference in arrival time of a sound at each ear, and the intensity of the sound both affect the firing rate and the temporal pattern of the neuronal activity, but in different ways. These differences enable the nervous system to maintain the information content of neural activity in the ever-changing auditory environment. We congratulate Doma for his excellent work and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
