  Some Psychoacoustics Psychoacoustics deals exactly with auditory perceptions and the way they are interpreted by the brain.Differentiation of strength and height, and the way of analyzing complex sounds and combinations of sounds are psychophysiological phenomenon. Understanding of this mechanism is the basis of the successful coding of sound and reducing sound data without getting a sense of great acoustic degradation. That is why this type of coding is called psychoacoustic. But let us first see what the physiology of hearing is. Ear generally comprises three sections – the external, middle and internal. The outer covers cochlea and the auditory canal, which focus and direct the received sound vibrations. The middle ear perceived, transmitted and amplified oscillation through the auditory membrane (eardrum) and three small bones – hammer, anvil and stirrup (the smallest bones in the human … Read entire article »
