About this book

The Auditory System at the Cocktail Party is a rather whimsical title that points to the very serious challenge faced by listeners in most everyday environments: how to hear out sounds of interest amid a cacophony of competing sounds. The Auditory System at the Cocktail Party presents the mechanisms for bottom-up object formation and top-down object selection that the auditory system employs to meet that challenge.
