The ANR Earscape project, led by Patricia Balaresque (University of Toulouse 3), explores, for the first me, whether the hearing sensitivity (HS) of normo-hearing individuals is shaped by acoustic environmental factors, and more specifically by the anthropophony component. This innovative approach combines the expertise from ecoacoustics, hearing physiology, anthropology, population genomics and explainable artificial intelligence to unravel the complex interactions between acoustic environmental and individual factors.
