Course provides the necessary basis for understanding the cognitive processes involved in our auditory perception of complex signals such as environmental sounds, speech and music. It will examine the basic cognitive theories of memory and attention, as well as the underlying concepts of information processing and perceptual grouping. The course will systematically explore how humans respond intellectually and emotionally to complex auditory stimuli. Course is multidisciplinary, with contributions from music, biology, physics, psychology, philosophy, and computer science. Numerous demonstrations are used to reinforce the theoretical material presented in the lectures.
