Abstract

The premise of this paper is that the auditory system's primary function is its ability to determine the sources of sound. Auditory image perception and analysis are defined as the basis for sound source determination. Few studies in the literature have focused on understanding these abilities and the paper argues that more attention should be paid to auditory image perception and analysis. Four questions are posed for understanding auditory image formation and seven physical variables are described which might be used for auditory image perception. The paper relates auditory image perception and analysis to a number of other topics in the hearing sciences in order to reinforce the argument that auditory image perception and analysis are the basis of hearing.
