Dear Colleagues, Several people have asked me to outline the differences between the Third Edition of An Introduction to the Psychology of Hearing (1989) and the Fourth Edition (1997). At the risk of incurring the wrath of those who hate their email being cluttered up with junk, I give below a brief summary: * Generally, the book has been updated. There are over 160 references to articles and books published since 1990. * There is more on nonlinear (active) mechanisms in the cochlea, and the way that they can be used to explain various psychoacoustic effects, such as the growth of forward masking, and the nonlinear additivity of forward and backward masking. * There are new sections on the processing of modulation (concept of a modulation filter bank), duration discrimination, models of loudness perception, binaural interference, and digital coding of sounds (including perceptual coders).
