Identifying Important Sound Features Used by the Brain when Listening in Noisy Backgrounds

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

The human auditory processing system is known to have difficulty understanding speech in noise. The study addresses this knowledge gap by using decision variable correlation, an extension of signal detection theory, to understand the cues utilized by the brain in detecting tones in noise. Results showed that cues associated with sound energy (energy cues) and the slow variations in amplitude across time (envelope cues) are both utilized, and envelope cues are utilized more for longer stimuli.
