Abstract : The research includes experiments on the discrimination and identification of a variety of complex sounds including sequences of tones, spectrally shaped waveforms, gaussian noise samples, speech sounds, and familiar environmental sounds. These factors include stimulus uncertainty, the proportion of the total duration of a sound that is subject to change, the temporal location of a change within a sound, and the details of a sound's spectral-temporal structure.
