This report describes the design of a spiking neural network that can classify different musical instruments based on their timbre and pitch, while also describing a model inspired by the structure of the human ear that converts audio inputs to spike domain for classification by a Spiking Neural Network.

Composer classification based on temporal coding in adaptive spiking neural networks
We develop a spiking neural network (SNN) based implementation of a feature based on melodic interval prevalence for composer classification of a musical composition. The network has an adaptive

TLDR
A theory of synchrony-based computation shows that relative spike timing may indeed have computational relevance, and suggests new types of neural network models for sensory processing with appealing computational properties.
Music in Our Ears: The Biological Bases of Musical Timbre Perception
TLDR
The study demonstrates that joint spectro-temporal features, such as those observed in the mammalian primary auditory cortex, are critical to provide the rich-enough representation necessary to account for perceptual judgments of timbre by human listeners, as well as recognition of musical instruments.
BAYESIAN APPROACHES TO MUSICAL INSTRUMENT CLASSIFICATION USING TIMBRE SEGMENTATION
TLDR
The proposed approaches outline a novel approach to multi-label classification of music instrument timbre which supports both harmonic and inharmonic instruments, scales to a large number of musical instruments, and allows for efficient classification of new examples given the trained models.
Neuronal organization of escape swimming inTritonia
TLDR
The switch from reflexive to programmed motor output is mediated centrally by two identified C2 neurons, which appears to retrigger the swim oscillator network cycle-by-cycle.
