Auditory Perception of Sound Sources by William A. Yost (auth.), William A. Yost, Arthur N. Popper,

By William A. Yost (auth.), William A. Yost, Arthur N. Popper, Richard R. Fay (eds.)

Auditory conception of Sound Sources covers higher-level auditory tactics which are perceptual methods. The chapters describe how people and different animals understand the sounds that they obtain from the various sound resources current on the earth. This publication will supply an outline of parts of present study concerned with figuring out how sound-source decision techniques function. This publication will specialise in psychophysics and belief in addition to being appropriate to simple auditory research.

Though these pairs shared similar physical and acoustical properties, the sounds for each pair were clearly discriminable from one another. 2. Human Sound Source Identification 33 Moreover, a detection-theoretic analysis indicated that performance could have been much better had the information in the sounds been used optimally. Two interpretations have been given for the less-than-optimal performance observed in the classification of material. The first implicates a lack of sufficient information in the stimulus.

Damping increased the confusions between plastic and wood, and also caused glass to be confused with these materials. Lutfi and Oh (1997) conducted an experiment similar to that of Gaver (1988), but with the specific goal of measuring the limits of listeners’ ability to classify bar material. The stimuli were synthetic sounds of freely vibrating bars perturbed at random from one trial to the next in mass density and elasticity. To ensure best performance, listeners were given extensive prior training in the task and received trial-by-trial feedback during the course of experimental trials.

6. 4, for the same bar. A. Lutfi interaction of force of impact with the physical properties of the object and how it is struck makes the determination of force of impact from sound a nontrivial problem and one meriting study (cf. Lakatos 2001). 4 Sound Radiation It is common in the literature on sound source identification to treat the soundproducing object as though it occupied a single isolated point in space, that except for intensity, the sound radiating outward is everywhere the same and varies only as a function of time.
