Bill's pursuit of graduate degrees and parallel work with the Navy provided unique opportunities: With a research grant from the Office of Naval Research Voice Communication Laboratory, he worked with John Black, "a noted experimental phonetician," an experience which started his career as a researcher and received his Master's of Science degree in audiology and psychoacoustics
. At the end of his tour of duty with the military, he worked as an acoustic science specialist with the Douglas Aircraft Company to study the impact of aircraft jet engine noise on non-human animals.
Leeds is a researcher and music producer studying psychoacoustics
the effect of sound on the human nervous system.
After the interview, each participant took part in one experiment with three psychoacoustics
Instead, he lists his research and teaching interests as "design and development of live performance computer systems" and "psychoacoustics
To do the best job possible we are required not only to understand hearing aids and hearing assessment using audiologic techniques, but also knowledge of how the ear works (auditory physiology and psychoacoustics
), testing methods (psychophysics), electronics and sound processing, counseling techniques, basic computer skills, etc.
(5) Or so at least 95 per cent of subjects systematically estimated in a series of experiments on psychoacoustics
(Kohler, 1929, 1947; Werner, 1934, 1957; Werner & Wapner, 1952) when asked which shape was called what in a language unknown to them, the options being kiki and booba (the latter word pronounced with [[??]], not [u:]):
The newest approach to tinnitus is multi disciplinary involving audiology, imaging, neurology and something called psychoacoustics
. The aim is to reduce emotional distress, helping people to think of their tinnitus in a different way and live with it.
And an even cleverer trick made possible by a digital loudspeaker is to use psychoacoustics
to spoof a listener into believing a sound is coming from a direction where there isn't actually a speaker.
Bose is a charming gentleman who undoubtedly knows more about electronics and psychoacoustics
than I could begin to fathom.
Soon, the piece has become a potential treatise on psychoacoustics
, along lines not dissimilar to those subsequently pursued by Alvin Lucier, but with a more speculative content.
