Abstract : The workshop was supported by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Life Sciences, and was chaired by the editors of this book. A series of recent events led to the workshop and publication of this book. In 1982, Dr. John Tangney of AFOSR approached the Committee on Hearing, Bioacoustics Biomechancis (CHABA) of the National Academy of Sciences to survey recent developments an d trends in the study of the auditory system. The result of the request from AFOSR was 1983 Symposium on Basic Research in Hearing organized by CHABA and sponsored by the AFOSR (Dolan and Yost, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 78, No. 1 Part 2, 1985). After reviewing the proceedings of the CHABA Symposium and considering its program goals, AFOSR began, in 1985, a program of support for research on complex auditory perception. The support by the AFOSR, the discussions at the CHABA Symposium, and the increased volume of research on the topic of auditory processing of complex sounds stimulated us to organize a meeting on this topic. With the support of the AFOSR the Sarasota Workshop on Auditory Processing of Complex Sounds was held in April, 1986.
