Psychoacoustics: Facts and Models
This book describes the processing of sound by the human hearing system. It presents quantitative relations between sound stimuli and auditory perceptions in terms of hearing sensations, implementing these relations in models. Modern views are outlined of peripheral activity in the inner ear, which plays an important role in the development of many hearing sensations, and the dependence of these sensations on acoustic parameters is described in psychoacoustical terms. Research scientists in psychoacoustics will welcome the wealth of data this book contains on the human hearing system as a receiver of acoustics information, while acoustic engineers will appreciate the many examples of practical applications of basic research results.
