08.04.2014 // Why auditory pitch and spatial elevation get high together
Researchers from Bielefeld University have demonstrated the origin of the mapping between auditory pitch and spatial elevation. Their analysis suggests that the shape of the human ear might have evolved to mirror the acoustic properties of the natural environment. Foto: Parise & Ernst; University of Bielefeld
Researchers uncover why there is a mapping between pitch and...
