Abstract:

The following is a list of the research supported by the Air Force grant during the period September 15, 1988, to September 30, 1991. Basically the research can be divided into five categories 1 profile analysis research, 2 synchrony detection, 3 dynamic factors, 4 psychophysical methodology, 5 use of Dr. B Bergs COSS technique to analyze profile experiments. Profile analysis continues to be our central research interest. The question is what are the factors that influence the human listeners ability to detect changes in a complex acoustic spectrum. Synchrony detection refers to the fact that correlation or synchrony between the envelopes of different spectral channels can be used as an important detection cue. Our interest in this area was initially stimulated by Dr. Virginia Richards.
