Bio Note: Peter Cariani’s training and work has involved theoretical biology, biological cybernetics, auditory neuroscience, and theoretical/computational neuroscience (B.S. 1978, MIT, biology; M.S. 1982, Ph.D. 1989, Binghamton University, systems science). His doctoral work developed a semiotics of percept–action systems, formulated a taxonomy of selfconstructing adaptive systems, and explored epistemic implications of evolutionary robotics. His subsequent work in auditory neurophysiology at Eaton-Peabody Laboratory for Auditory Physiology involved investigation of temporal neural codes for musical pitch and consonance in the auditory system. In 2009 he edited a book on architectural acoustics by Yoichi Ando, Auditory and Visual Sensations. Currently (2019) he is affiliated with Boston University (Senior Research Scientist at the Center for Hearing Research) and Harvard Medical School (Clinical Instructor , Part-time in Otology and Laryngology). Cariani also has taught courses related to music perception and cognition at several Boston-area institutions (MIT, Harvard, Tufts, Boston Conservatory, Boston Conservatory at Berklee College of Music) as well as a course on consciousness studies (Boston Conservatory.) He is currently working on temporal correlation models for musical pitch and rhythm and on general purpose neural timing net architectures, and is writing a book on music, temporal codes, and the brain.
