Pitch : neural coding and perception by Christopher J Plack( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although pitch has been considered an important area of auditory research since the birth of modern acoustics in the 19th century, some of the most significant developments in our understanding of this phenomenon have occurred comparatively recently. In auditory physiology, researchers are now identifying cells in the brainstem and cortex that may be involved in the derivation of pitch. In auditory psychophysics, dramatic developments over the last few years have changed our understanding of temporal pitch mechanisms, and of the roles of resolved and unresolved harmonics. This volume brings together the more recent findings, while emphasizing their relation to the discoveries of the past. It brings together insights from several different methodological areas: physiology, psychophysics, comparative, imaging, etc., in addressing a single scientific problem. Pitch perception can be regarded as one of the main problems of hearing, and the multidisciplinary approach of the book p
Fish bioacoustics by Jacqueline F Webb( )

21 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of how fish make and respond to sound has important implications for communication, physiology, behavior, and commercial techniques. This new definitive volume on fish auditory systems will interest investigators in both basic research of fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and resource management. Topics will cover structure, physiology, localization, and acoustic behavior as well as more applied topics such as using sound to detect and locate fish
Loudness by Mary Florentine( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic of loudness is of considerable concern both in and outside of research laboratories. Most people have developed an opinion about some aspect of loudness, and many complain about the loudness of background sounds in their daily environments and their impacts on quality of life. Moreover, such sounds interfere with the ability to hear useful sounds, and such masking can be especially problematic for people with hearing losses, children, older adults, and non-native speakers of a language. At the same time, not all loud sounds are undesirable. Some loud sounds are important for human well-being, such as warning signals, whereas other loud sounds, such as music, can be pleasurable. In fact, loudness is essential for enjoying the dynamics of music. Thus, loudness is a pervasive and complex issue, and one that needs to be examined from a wide range of perspectives, and that is the purpose of this volume.¡ Research in loudness has been performed in many countries, and this volume is an international endeavor with authors from Europe, Japan, and the United States, making the volume an attempt to provide a global network of information about loudness. The editors are very pleased to be able to bring together information on many aspects of loudness in this one volume, as well as to highlight approaches from many different perspectives

Active processes and otoacoustic emissions in hearing by Geoffrey A Manley( )

24 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music perception by Mari Riess Jones( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing prevalence of musical stimulation in our everyday environment makes studies of musical listening, comprehension and memory important. Music has simply become a pervasive aspect of the experienced environment for most of us; along with enhanced levels of machine sounds, musical sound sources are contributing to a virtual transformation of contemporary soundscapes occurring in many industrial countries. In spite of such trends, arguably the mainstream research in psychology and related fields has been slow to devote concentrated attention to this phenomenon and what it might mean

Human auditory development by Lynne A Werner( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume will provide an important contemporary reference on hearing development and will lead to new ways of thinking about hearing in children and about remediation for children with hearing loss.

Auditory prostheses : new horizons by Fan-Gang Zeng( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cochlear implants are currently the standard treatment for profound sensorineural hearing loss. In the last decade, advances in auditory science and technology have not only greatly expanded the utility of electric stimulation to other parts of the auditory nervous system in addition to the cochlea, but have also demonstrated drastic changes in the brain in responses to electric stimulation, including changes in language development and music perception. Volume 20 of SHAR focused on basic science and technology underlying the cochlear implant. However, due to the newness of the ideas and techn

The middle ear : science, otosurgery, and technology by Sunil Puria( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The middle ear plays a vital role in the sense and sensitivity of hearing. Of the various characteristics that distinguish mammals from other vertebrates, several pertain specifically to the middle-ear system, such as the presence of three middle-ear bones and the four-layer composite structure of the tympanic membrane. The Middle Ear attempts to elucidate the role this system plays in sound transmission, as viewed from both scientific and clinical perspectives
