Our study on the impact of naturalistic spatial statistics on the coding of sound source locations (Helge's PhD work) is currently under review. As part of the submission process, we also posted the manuscript... mehr
Michael receives grant to study the role of relevance for sound localization during ASA
In everyday life, acoustic communication and orientation relies on auditory scene analysis (ASA, also referred to as cocktail party effect), i.e. on the ability of the brain to selectively processes sound... mehr
