Course Catalog Description:
Have you ever wondered how the sense of hearing works? This course will give you a deep look at the science behind the sense of hearing. You will learn about how sound is created, and transmitted from the air to our ears. Once sound enters our ears, it makes an impressive journey through many stations along the auditory pathway... all the way up to our brains. In addition to the physiological process of sound transmission through the auditory system, this course also covers psychoacoustics measures that provide non-invasive techniques and methods to evaluate the transmission of sound through the auditory system. prereq: [3302, 3305W] or instr consent

Class Description:
This course introduces students to the theories, methods, and research in psychological and physiological acoustics. The first part of the course emphasizes physiological acoustics, including the external and middle ears, cochlea, auditory nerve, and central auditory pathways. The second half of the course relates perception to the underlying physiological processes discussed earlier in the course. Perceptual areas covered include detection, pitch, loudness, discrimination, and object perception. Examples are related to impaired auditory systems.
