Contents Notes
Perceiving Sound Sources -- Human Sound Source Identification -- Size Information in the Production and Perception of Communication Sounds -- The Role of Memory in Auditory Perception -- Auditory Attention and Filters -- Informational Masking -- Effects of Harmonicity and Regularity on the Perception of Sound Sources -- Spatial Hearing and Perceiving Sources -- Envelope Processing and Sound-Source Perception -- Speech as a Sound Source -- Sound Source Perception and Stream Segregation in Nonhuman Vertebrate Animals. Auditory Perception of Sound Sources covers higher-level auditory processes that are perceptual processes. The chapters describe how humans and other animals perceive the sounds that they receive from the many sound sources existing in the world. This book will provide an overview of areas of current research involved with understanding how sound-source determination processes operate. This book will focus on psychophysics and perception as well as being relevant to basic auditory research. Contents: Perceiving Sound Sources: An Overview William A.
