Understanding the functioning of the human auditory system has been of interest for decades and many mathematical models have been developed based on experimental results. Many of these models address the key components of the human auditory system: outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear, which consists of cochlea and organ of corti. In this paper, a novel approach for human auditory model is developed that is based on the concepts of fuzzy logic for simulating basilar membrane and stereocilia, and a feed-forward neural network for simulating outer hair cell of the inner ear. Frequency, intensity and the direction of stereocilia movement are the three inputs to the fuzzy logic portion of the model. The output of this block is the net force, which becomes the input to the neural network. The implementation and simulated results using MATLAB® are presented.
