Three experiments on loudness of sounds with linearly increasing levels were performed: global loudness was measured using direct ratings, loudness change was measured using direct and indirect estimations. Results revealed differences between direct and indirect estimations of loudness change, indicating that the underlying perceptual phenomena are not the(More)
The auditory system infers the location of sound sources from the processing of different acoustic cues. These cues change during development and when assistive hearing devices are worn. Previous studies have found behavioral recalibration to modified localization cues in human adults, but very little is known about the neural correlates and mechanisms of(More)
Loudness change has been recently studied for tones with linearly varying levels. The published results by different authors revealed that direct ratings of loudness change for increasing sounds are higher compared to decreasing sounds. Interpretations of the results were different between Neuhoff’s (1998) and Teghtsoonian et al’s (2005) studies. The latter(More)
The adult human auditory system can adapt to changes in spectral cues for sound localization. This plasticity was demonstrated by changing the shape of the pinna with earmolds. Previous results indicate that participants regain localization accuracy after several weeks of adaptation and that the adapted state is retained for at least one week without(More)
