Demodulation

The act of extracting a signal from its modulated carrier wave. For example, an AM broadcasting station modulates the audio into a high-frequency carrier. At your radio receiver the modulated carrier is then demodulated, leaving just the audio signal to be amplified. The FM modulation/demodulation procedure is conceptually the same (though it’s different in practice).
