Royal Society meeting on vertebrate and insect hearing

Hearing evolved independently in insects and vertebrates, and their auditory systems can look very different. For example, grasshoppers have "ears" on their legs. But are there some shared, fundamental principles of hearing?

To discuss this, Dr Kozlov and Dr Joerg Albert are holding a meeting at the Royal Society on the 4th and 5th December 2017. More information on the Royal Society website.
