The current study investigated the ability of subjects to perceive source characteristics (the gender of a human walker) of a naturally occurring auditory event (human walking). A number of acoustic properties were measured and subjected to statistical analyses in order to identify those properties that differentiate male and female walking footsteps. A principal component analysis on the statistical properties of the spectral energy distributions then identified two classes of information that… CONTINUE READING
