Hearing in Complex Environments

This final chapter on the auditory senses covers the more complex problems of hearing in a busy world. One topic is Auditory Scene Analysis: you can never close your ears, so you’re constantly bombarded with the sounds around you, but how do you make sense of where those sounds are coming from? The second topic is speech production and speech processing. Understanding spoken language is a remarkable auditory skill.
