Click vs. click-click vs. blink-click: Factors influencing human sound localization in the horizontal plane. Norbert Kopčo TU Košice Dept. of Cybernetics and AI Boston University Hearing Research Center Dartmouth College Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. Intro: Sound localization.
3-dimmensional: azimuth, elevation, distance
Experiment 1Perceptual and central effects in sound localization with a preceding distractor (aka Click vs. Click-click vs. Click-click-click-click...)
Distance perception in reverberant environments- is consistent experience necessary for accurate distance perception?- also, studies looking at other parameters (mono- vs. binaural, anechoic vs. reverberant, real vs. simulated environments)“Room learning” and calibration to its acoustic properties- is localization accuracy and “room learning” affected by changes in listener position in a room?- do speech perception mechanisms calibrate to different acoustic environments?Spatial release from masking- effect of signal and masker location on detectability/intelligibility of pure tones, broadband non-speech stimuli, and speech in anechoic and reverberant environments
Overview of recent studies of binaural and spatial hearing
