Acoustic frequency analysis plays an essential role in sound perception, communication and behavior. The auditory systems of most vertebrates that perceive sounds in air are organized based on the separation of complex sounds into component frequencies. This process begins at the level of the auditory sensory epithelium where specific frequencies are distributed along the tonotopic axis of the mammalian cochlea or the avian/reptilian basilar papilla (BP).
