Auditory Event Perception: The Source-Perception Loop for Posture in Human Gait
Pastore, Richard E., Flint, Jesse D., Gaston, Jeremy R., Solomon, Matthew J., Perception and Psychophysics
There is a small but growing literature on the perception of natural acoustic events, but few attempts have been made to investigate complex sounds not systematically controlled within a laboratory setting. The present study investigates listeners' ability to make judgments about the posture (upright-stooped) of the walker who generated acoustic stimuli contrasted on each trial. We use a comprehensive three-stage approach to event perception, in which we develop a solid understanding of the source event and its sound properties, as well as the relationships between these two event stages. Developing this understanding helps both to identify the limitations of common statistical procedures …
