Although auditory tasks are important and well recognized, the mental workload associated with auditory processing has received relatively little attention. New and improved neurophysiological methods of examining auditory processing have opened new ways for understanding the relationship between auditory processing and mental workload. Auditory Processing and Mental Workloads brings together for the first time a thorough examination of the information processing demands of auditory signals and provides extensive coverage of topical areas including audition in human factors research, cognitive aspects of auditory processing related to attention, and the impact of advanced auditory displays.
- Brings together for the first time a thorough examination of the information processing demands of auditory signals
- Provides extensive coverage of audition in human factors research, working memory, and more
- Serves as a valuable resource to students from a wide variety of disciplines
