This chapter presents an autobiography of Nobuo Suga. Suga and his collaborators explored the neural mechanisms for parallel and hierarchical processing of biosonar information and the cortical maps representing different types of biosonar information. They also explored the role of the corticofugal (descending) auditory system in the improvement and adjustment of auditory signal processing and the neural circuit for plastic changes in the central auditory system elicited by auditory fear conditioning. His early years, career, and achievements are discussed.

Keywords:   parallel processing, hierarcical processing, neural circuit, biosonar information processing, cortical maps, auditory signal processing, auditory system
