The everyday auditory world is a cluttered, complicated place. Sounds from every source around blend with acoustic reflections from every other object or surface nearby. Location is key to knowing what is out there and reacting accordingly. But most studies of location in spatial hearing are concerned with sounds in isolation, not when presented in others. In this talk, I will introduce the topic of how we locate sounds, what happens when other sounds occur concurrently, and report some new data from my laboratory.
Professor Akeroyd’s talk will be preceded by the Speech and Hearing Group AGM.
