It then focuses on vision, hearing, and olfaction, covering neural processing and visual ability; perception and processing of complex visual images; neural processing and hearing ability; perception of complex sound forms; neural processing of olfactory stimuli; behavioural measures of olfactory performance; and perception of conspecific and natural odours.
