Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

[AIMS]
This course is an introduction to research on auditory cognition. We will cover all relevant topics from basic psychoacoustic and neuroscientific methods to selective hearing in complex auditory scenes like cocktail parties. After completing the course, students should have gained an overview of the current state of research as well as hot topics in the field. They will have familiarized themselves with literature on auditory cognition and trained their presentation and discussion skills.

[CONTENTS]
The course will cover five broad topics of auditory cognition (units 3 to 12). In addition, we will review ear physiology and research methods to prepare the students for presentations and discussions. The detailed schedule is as follows:

1. unit: Introduction and organization
2. unit: Review of ear physiology, methods of hearing research
3./4. unit: Pitch and music perception
5./6. unit: Space perception
7./8. unit: Selective hearing I
9./10. unit: Selective hearing II
11./12. unit: Auditory dysfunction and prostheses
13. unit: Excursion to the Lab of the Acoustics Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (https://www.kfs.oeaw.ac.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=67&Itemid=855&lang=en) at Wohllebengasse 12-14, A-1040 Vienna (close to Karlsplatz)

[METHODS]
Each of the five topics will be covered in two units. In the first unit, an introductory lecture on the topic will be given and the students are encouraged to ask questions and engage in discussions. In the second unit, students will present papers and moderate the discussion following their presentations. Other students will be selected to also read the papers in detail and will act as expert questioners to push the discussion.

[CORONA]
The course will be held on-site while maintaining the necessary distance. In case of a lockdown or other restrictions, we will switch to fully online teaching. If you are a member of a risk group, please contact us. We will ensure that you can attend on-site classes online.
