Joint Speech and Hearing Group and London Branch Evening Meeting
The Problem of the Location of the Second Sound
Professor Michael Akeroyd,
University of Nottingham and MRC Institute of Hearing Research
Wednesday 19 June 2019 at 6pm
WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, WSP House, 70 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1AF
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.
The closest underground stations are Chancery Lane (Central line) and Holborn (Central & Piccadilly line).
Topics and speakers for the evening meetings are generally identified and organised by the London Branch Committee, but we always welcome new ideas and suggestions for future presentations. If you have any ideas or suggestions, or may even like to give a presentation yourself, please contact the London Branch Committee (Roslyn Andrews: Roslyn.Andrews@aecom.com)
