Acoustic correlates of auditory object and event perception: Speakers, musical timbres and environmental sounds

Human listeners must identify and orient themselves to auditory objects and events in their environment. What acoustic features support a listener’s ability to differentiate the great variety of natural sounds they might encounter? Studies of …

Separable neural representations of sound sources: Speaker identity and musical timbres

Human listeners can quickly and easily recognize different sound sources (objects and events) in their environment. Understanding how this impressive ability is accomplished can improve signal processing and machine intelligence applications along …
