Psychoacoustics

Psychoacoustics concerns itself with the relationship between the acoustic signals and their subjective percept. Loudness, pitch and timbre are approximately the correlates of signal amplitude, frequency and frequency spectrum, respectively. Experimental and mathematical models describe the interrelations between the basis functions of auditory perception. Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA) is an integrative approach to combine different fields of psychoacoustics. The results enter the research in sound localisation, speech and music perception, noise abatement etc.

Computational Hearing and Psychoacoustics investigates several areas which rely on human hearing:

  • Psychoacoustics (proper): is concerned with the perception of sound in general. Main topics include pitch timbre, loudness and temporal aspects of sounds.
  • Noise Abatement: investigates the acoustic and psychoacoustic description of unwanted sounds and supports the specification of methods for reducing noise, from whatever source (Sound Quality Design).
  • Speech and Language Processing: this area is involved with acoustic aspects of phonetics and linguistics.
  • Comparative and Systematic Musicology: application of psychoacoustic models in the acoustic analysis of music and the human perception thereof.
