The Audio Engineering Society 16th International Conference: Spatial Sound Reproduction, 10-12 April 1999


Controversies and Mysteries in Spatial Hearing

Brian C. J. Moore

Department of Experimental Psychology,
University of Cambridge

This paper addresses three areas: (1) how good are human listeners at localizing sounds when multiple sound sources are present, and how is that ability affected by the number of sources?; (2) What role does spatial information play in the perception of auditory objects?; (3) Is the precedence (Haas) effect "hard-wired" in the brain, or does it depend on cognitive processing?
