6.551 Acoustics of Speech and Hearing
Provides background for understanding how the acoustics and mechanics of the speech production and auditory systems define what sounds we are capable of producing and what sounds we can sense. Particular focus on the acoustic cues used in determining the direction of a sound source; the mechanisms involved in speech production; the mechanisms used by the auditory system to transduce and analyze sounds; and sound perception (absolute detection, discrimination, masking, and auditory frequency selectivity).
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 36-737.
