  1. 1. Psychoacoustics and hallucinating schizophrenics. A psychobiological approach to schizophrenia

    Author : Olle M Olsson; Lund Psykiatri; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Psychiatry; psychiatry; perception; auditory grouping; psychoacoustics; Schizophrenia; auditory hallucinations; clinical psychology; psychosomatics; Psykiatri; klinisk psykologi; psykosomatik;

    Abstract : Psychoacoustic experiments have been conducted for schizophrenic patients with auditory hallucinations in their case history and for reference subjects. The aim of the thesis has been to assess differences between the two groups of subjects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Embodied psychoacoustics: Spatial and multisensory determinants of auditory-induced emotion

    Author : Ana Tajadura; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ecological psychoacoustics; multisensory perception; emoacoustics; vibrotactile; auditory-induced emotion; embodiment; peripersonal space; self-representation;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis focuses on auditory perception, bringing together traditional psychoacoustics, emotion, embodiment and multisensory research. In particular, the current research explored how sound, and the interpretation the listener makes of it, induces emotions in people. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Emotion in the Interpretation of Sounds

    Author : Penny Bergman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; auditory-induced emotions; Interpretation; psychoacoustics; Mediation analysis; Categorization; Emotion responses;

    Abstract : Historically there has been a conceptual distinction between reason and passion, i.e. emotions and higher levels of cognitive processing has been viewed apart from each other and studied separately. Recent research suggest a more dynamic interaction where the emotional responses may affect several aspects of higher level cognitive functioning. READ MORE

  4. 4. AURALIZATION, PERCEPTION AND DETECTION OF TYRE–ROAD NOISE

    Author : Alice Hoffmann; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Perception; Psychoacoustics; Rolling Noise; Traffic Detection; Reaction Time; Auralization; Tyre Road Noise;

    Abstract : Due to improvements in combustion engines and electric engines for cars, tyre noise has become the prominent noise source at low and medium speeds. Models exist that simulate the noise produced by a rolling tyre, as do models that auralize specific traffic situations from a basic data set. READ MORE
