Springer, 1996. — 527 p. — (Springer Handbook of Auditory Research. Volume 6).The purpose of this volume is to provide an overview and understanding of computational analyses of auditory system function. The approach expressed in the chapters of this volume embodies the ideas that complex information processing must be understood at multiple levels of analysis, that it must be addressed from a multidisciplinary perspective that incorporates the constraints imposed by neurobiology, psychophysics, and computational analysis, and that the end product of computational analysis should be the development of formal models. These ideas and approaches are dealt with in the ten chapters of this volume. In the first chapter, Hawkins and McMullen provide an overview of the volume as well as a brief introduction to the computational approaches that are used to increase understanding of auditory information processing. The next several chapters arc organized with respect to levels of auditory analysis and processing. In Chapter 2, Rosowski discusses models. of the external and middle ears, while in Chapter 3 Hubbard and Mountain consider computational issues related to inner car function, primarily cochlear mechanics. In Chapter 4, these same authors (Mountain and Hubbard) discuss computational analysis of the hair cells and eighth nerve fibers that transduce and transmit information to the brain. In Chapter 5 Delgutte treats extraction of acoustic features such as frequency, intensity , and loudness at the eighth nerve. The remaining chapters are concerned with computations involving higher levels of the central auditory system, from the cochlear nucleus to the auditory cortex. In Chapter 6 Lyon and Shamma describe computations underlying the extraction of pitch and timbre, and Mellinger and Mont-Reynaud (Chapter 7) develop the computational basis of auditory scene analysis. In Chapter 8 Colburn summarizes the empirical findings on binaural hearing and describes a number of computational models based on these findings. In Chapter 9 Simmons outlines several computational models of the processes by which spectral and temporal information is combined in the bat auditory system to reconstruct target images. In the final chapter (10), Lewis describes inferential computations that could underlie the analysis and retention of sequences of acoustic events.Auditory Computation: An Overview Models of External- and Middle-Ear Function Analysis and Synthesis of Cochlear Mechanical Function Using Models Computational Analysis of Hair Cell and Auditory Nerve Processes Physiological Models for Basic Auditory Percepts Auditory Representations of Timbre and Pitch Scene Analysis Computational Models of Binaural Processing Auditory Computations for Biosonar Target Imaging in Bats Further Computations Involving Time
