This book brings together recent research on the ability of human listeners to discern changes in the shape of complex acoustic spectra. It systematically discusses issues surrounding the discrimination of a change in acoustic intensity and the physiological mechanisms responsible for thisprocess. The book also proposes two new theories which attempt to explain spectral shape discrimination on the basis of more elementary auditory processes. The research described here is helping scientists gain a better understanding of auditory skills such as those involved in listening to musicand speech.
David M. Green is a Graduate Research Professor of Psychology at the University of Florida.

Editorial Reviews

"This version of "profile analysis" refers to the fundamental question of how we hear changes in the spectral shape of complex sounds. . . . this mongraph provides a very readable introduction. . . useful compilation. . . conveys an excitment that is appropriate to this new and important areaof auditory research." --Contemporary Psychology
