Abstract:

The research investigated the perceptual processes involved in the recognition of complex nonspeech sounds, particularly those that resemble steady-state passive sonar signals. The individual experiments conducted in this pursuit have been distributed in nine technical reports and ten additional papers. The issues addressed in this work concerned three general problem areas 1 identification of perceptual features, 2 aural feature selection processes, and 3 aural classification processes. The methods, substantive contribution and practical implications of the research are outlined.
