Hearing: representing the aural wallpaper

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveyResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Human listeners appear to represent the textures of sounds through a process of automatic time averaging that exists beyond volition. This process distils likely background sounds into their summary statistics, a computationally efficient way of dealing with complex auditory scenes.
