The book describes the nature of sound, how sound is analyzed by the auditory system, and the rules and principles governing our interpretation of auditory input. It guides the reader through the physics of sound and the anatomy and physiology of the inner ear and nervous system before embarking on an explanation of how experiments reveal the means by which we locate and identify sound sources and events and how we recognize and interpret the patterns of music and speech.

Emphasis is placed upon the interconnectedness of areas in auditory perception. This is especially evident in the treatment of the acoustic sequences, pitch and infrapitch, and the restoration of portions of signals obliterated by extraneous sounds. In addition, a chapter on speech describes how processes employed for the organization of nonverbal patterns are used for the organization of syllables and words, along with an overlay of special linguistic mechanisms. The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing audio demonstrations, allowing the reader to experience directly some of the auditory illusions that have been described in the text.

These can provide new insight into the mechanisms employed in perceptual organization. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in auditory perception in behavioral sciences, psychology, neurobiology, and speech and hearing sciences will find this book an excellent advanced guide to the subject.
