An Overview of Psychoacoustics and Auditory Perception
This paper surveys experimental and theoretical work on the psychology of hearing, particularly those aspects that are, or may be relevant to audio reproduction. The general areas considered include: (1) auditory sensitivity and dynamic range; (2) temporal aspects of hearing; (3) frequency and pitch perception; (4) intensity and loudness perception. Current work and directions will be discussed and particular attention will be devoted to the neural and mechanical correlates of these psychological phenomenon.
