TCPP Welcomes You


The Technical Committee on Psychological and Physiological Acoustics is concerned with the investigation and the dissemination of information about psychological and physiological responses to sound in humans and other species. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Perception and perceptual organization of simple and complex sounds, including speech
  2. Anatomy and function of the auditory pathways, including all physical and biological responses to auditory stimulation
  3. Hearing disorders, hearing loss, and auditory prostheses
  4. Vibrotactile and vestibular sensation, and the interaction of hearing with other sensory modalities
  5. Developmental, aging, learning and plasticity effects in auditory function
  6. Theories and models of auditory processes


Breaking News!

Glenis Long will be awarded the 2019 William and Christine Hartmann Prize in Auditory Neuroscience!

Barbara Shinn-Cunningham will be awarded the 2019 Helmholtz-Rayleigh Interdisciplinary Silver Medal!

Both awards will be presented at the May 2019 meeting in Louisville!

Congratulations! Spread the word!!
