S4620: Psychoacoustics in Splash Fall 2022 (Oct. 29, 2022)
Most of us take hearing for granted. But behind this ability is a complex process of translating pressure waves in the air to meaningful percepts that we can understand. In this class, we will explore how sound is transduced to signals for the brain, how the mind interprets those signals, and how this intricate system can be disrupted. Our high-level tour of psychoacoustics will touch upon many other areas of science, including physics, biology, and of course, psychology. However, no prior knowledge is required and it may even be better to come in with a fresh set of ears!
