The perceptual understanding of behaviorally relevant sounds are, in part, dependent on our ability to hear with two ears, a process known as binaural hearing. Precise encoding of temporal information by cells in the auditory system facilitates this ability. It is now understood that specific chemical and cellular events must be perfectly orchestrated during development for these functional properties to emerge. Innovative science has advanced our knowledge of binaural hearing through developmental neurobiology research.
