The role of our sensory systems is to bring us information about the world. Essentially all we learn comes to us through vision, hearing and all of the other senses. Importantly, the brain is tasked with integrating all of this incoming information to create a consolidated understanding of the ongoing world around us. When hearing is disrupted, the person’s accurate and natural appreciation for the environment is thrown out of balance. Sound no longer provides a reliable source of information, with even the possibility that the brain creates a false impression of sound. Appropriate application of advanced signal processing requires a proper appreciation of how the brain uses auditory information. In this seminar, we will review our approach to signal processing with this perspective in mind.
