Topic: Understanding Auditory Motion Perception: the Role of Envelope, Temporal Fine Structure and Attention
In everyday environments, listeners and objects are often in motion. Understanding the cues that affect auditory motion perception is challenging, because sound displacement co-varies with sound velocity and duration. Over the last four decades, most research on auditory motion perception has aimed to understand the effects of sound duration and sound velocity to map the limits of auditory motion perception. Little to no research has aimed to understand the functionality of sound motion: which cues contribute to judging a sound as moving or stationary? This talk will discuss a series of experiments that investigate the connection between different acoustic cues and auditory motion perception in free-field acoustics.
