Multiple levels of linguistic and paralinguistic features contribute to voice recognition
Voice or speaker recognition is critical in a wide variety of social contexts. In this study, we investigated the contributions of acoustic, phonological, lexical, and semantic information towardExpand

Attentive Tracking of Sound Sources
Auditory scenes often contain concurrent sound sources, but listeners are typically interested in just one of these and must somehow select it for further processing. One challenge is that real-worldExpand

Headphone screening to facilitate web-based auditory experiments
TLDR
Psychophysical experiments conducted remotely over the internet permit data collection from large numbers of participants but sacrifice control over sound presentation and therefore are not widely employed in hearing research. Expand

Schema learning for the cocktail party problem
TLDR
We show that listeners rapidly learn the abstract structure shared by sounds from novel sources and use the learned structure to extract these sounds when they appear in mixtures. Expand

Modulation in background music influences sustained attention.
Background music is known to affect performance on cognitive tasks, possibly due to temporal modulations in the acoustic signal, but little is known about how music should be designed to aidExpand
Attentive tracking in human audition
Auditory scenes often contain multiple sound sources, but typically one is of particular interest and must be selected for further processing. This “cocktail party problem” is especially difficultExpand
Rapid learning of sound schema for the cocktail party problem
Auditory scene analysis depends on knowledge of natural sound structure, but little is known about how source-specific structures might be learned and applied. We explored whether listenersExpand
