About this book

This book reports on the application of advanced models of the human binaural hearing system in modern technology, among others, in the following areas:  binaural analysis of aural scenes, binaural de-reverberation, binaural quality assessment of audio channels, loudspeakers and performance spaces, binaural perceptual coding, binaural processing in hearing aids and cochlea implants, binaural systems in robots, binaural/tactile human-machine interfaces, speech-intelligibility prediction in rooms and/or multi-speaker scenarios. An introduction to binaural modeling and an outlook to the future are provided. Further, the book features a MATLAB toolbox to enable readers to construct their own dedicated binaural models on demand.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an advanced book on binaural hearing computations and mechanisms. … The data in this textbook is for investigators in the human audiology laboratories and is suitable to computational studies. I highly recommend this book for all neuroscientists with an interest in somatomotor and auditory physiology.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, March, 2015)
