A software package with a modular architecture has been developed to support perceptual modeling of the fine‐grain spectro‐temporal information observed in the auditory nerve. The package contains both functional and physiological modules to simulate auditory spectral analysis, neural encoding, and temporal integration, including new forms of periodicity‐sensitive temporal integration that generate stabilized auditory images. Combinations of the modules enable the user to approximate a wide variety of existing, time‐domain, auditory models. Sequences of auditory images can be replayed to produce cartoons of auditory perceptions that illustrate the dynamic response of the auditory system to everyday sounds.
