Dealing with the topic of auditory perception, or psychoacoustics, this text emphasizes the mechanisms underlying auditory perception and explains the key concepts, including: loudness perception and intensity discrimination; frequency analysis and masking; temporal processing; the perception of pitch; and sound localization and related phenomena. Introductory chapters describe the basic physical concepts needed to understand the nature of auditory stimuli and the physiology of the auditory system and particularly the inner ear. Later chapters cover auditory object perception, and discuss the auditory system's ability to analyze a complex mixture of sounds in order to derive percepts corresponding to the individual sound source. Also covered are speech perception; practical applications such as hearing aids and cochlea implants, the psychoacoustics of high-fidelity sound reproduction, and concert hall acoustics.

Review:

"This is the fifth edition of a book that first appeared in 1977 covering hearing science in a logical fashion, with a comprehensive bibliography and indexing. The author is a celebrated expert on hearing and has made extensive contributions to the original research described in the book.

The book is organized in a logical manner... This is an exceptionally valuable book that is used by most active researchers in the field, both as a reference and as prescribed reading for students. It is unique with regard to its scope of coverage and the level of discourse... this new edition is needed."
