31 rows  Sound source localization (SSL) is defined as the determination of the direction from a Cited by:   Fortunately, for those of us who really want a clear and comprehensive overview of how the human hearing system works to identify the location of sounds, there is one book cited above all others that serves as the text on the subject: Jens Blauert's "Spatial Hearing: The Psychophysics of Human Sound Localization." (Some of the book can be read. HRTF Sound Localization. By Martin Rothbucher, David Kronmüller, Marko Durkovic, Tim Habigt and Klaus Diepold. Submitted: May 28th Reviewed: October 20th Cited by: 8. Binaural Hearing, Sound Localization, and Spatial Hearing Although evidence suggests a similar role of axonal delay in the cat (Smith et al., ), the origin of.

Sound localization is the ability to tell the direction from which a sound is originating. When sound localization ability is low, it affects a person's safe interaction in an environment. When sound localization ability is low, it affects a person's safe interaction in an environment. sound localization seemingly would be to present sounds at varying locations remote from the listener and to have the listener make some judgment of those locations. 2 BINAURAL SOUND LOCALIZATION θ a a sin θ Figure Interaural differences of time and intensity impinging on an ideal spherical head from a distant source. An interaural time delay (ITD) is produced because it takes longer for the signal to reach the more distant ear. An interaural intensity difference (IID) is produced because the headFile Size: 1MB.   Evolutionwise, sound localization has a number of advantages. Predators use sound, among other senses, to find their prey and rely on the ability to precisely fix locations on the basis of sound alone when other senses may not be available or may be compromised.

This chapter discusses the saccadic eye-movement system and the eye–head gaze-orienting system, as both are implicated in natural sound-localization behavior. Due to the highly inhomogeneous retina, foveate animals optimize their orienting behavior through rapid, .

Downloadable Manual: This publication is also available as a free-of-charge download — print it as needed using the. - manipulate the amplitude of the sound such that if you play a high amplitude sound right and matching but a low amplitude sound on left, then the right ear is going to get the sound at a higher amplitude then the left ear and your brain will interpret that as being on the right side of . The localization of sound is a fundamental requirement for all auditory systems and has motivated much research. This comprehensive volume brings together topics from many specialties that have been touched upon in other volumes of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research.
