KELVASA2015(insig,fs) implements the ACE signal processing strategy upon the two channel input signal to produce bilateral electrodograms. This is further processed through an electrode nerve interface to generate spike times of a population of AN neurons. A chosen localization model from Kelvasa and Dietz 2015 is then used to map the two channel (right and left) outputs to a predicted azimuthal position.

The steps of the binaural model to calculate the result are the following :
1) Process two channel input signal through a CI strategy as detailed in (Hamacher, 2003) and (Fredelake and Hohmann, 2012) to produce bilateral electrodograms.
2) Process electrodogram through an electrode nerve interface and auditory nerve model as detailed in (Fredelake and Hohmann, 2012)
3) Compute bilateral spike rate differences over chosen AN frequency bands and time windows as detailed in (Kelvasa and Dietz, 2015)
4) Calibrate the chosen localization model with a chosen calibration signal. This step can take several hours so preProcessed calibration is loaded for "Speech Shaped Noise" at 55dB as detailed in (Kelvasa and Dietz, 2015)
5) Map the spike rate differences for each AN frequency band to a predicted azimuthal angle using the chosen localization model as detailed in (Kelvasa and Dietz, 2015)
