Hearing with Ears Instead of Instruments

Document Thumbnail

The ear is a physiological transducer for physiologically produced sound, making capital not only of envelope variations but of temporal and spectral jitter operating in milliseconds and smaller periods. By stimulating large neural populations responsive to onset and to change, and by resulting additional increase in the participation of memory in perception, this elaborate microstructure adds richness and body to tone.
