Auditory Perception

, 4 pts, GU4265


How does the human brain make sense of the acoustic world? What aspects of auditory perception do humans share with other animals? How does the brain perform the computations necessary for skills such as sound
localization? How do we focus our auditory attention on one voice in a crowd? What acoustic cues are important for speech perception? How is music perceived? These are the types of questions we will address by studying
the basics of auditory perception from textbook readings and reviews, and reading classic and current literature
to understand scientific progress in the field today.
