≪Organizer Abstract≫
Sounds convey information along the temporal stream. Therefore, the research into temporal factors is important in auditory perception. It is well known that basic attributes of auditory perception, i.e. loudness, pitch and timbre, are affected by temporal factors. Temporal aspects are also important in music and speech perception. Concerning applied research, when environmental problems are considered from psychological viewpoints, it can be made clear what are the important factors to create comfortable sound environment by examining the subjective impression along the temporal steam. In this symposium, basic psychophysics, music and speech perception, and environmental problems, including physiological approach, will be discussed focusing attention to temporal aspects.
