Semantic Processing of Auditory Events

Our performance in recognizing and identifying the source in sound perception varies according to the content of the sound. Sound waves caused by speech, music and natural sounds are identified and processed according to frequency, magnitude and phase characteristics when transmitted to the brain and sent to related regions to execute functions such as motor, attention and decision making. The perception of sound using different channels may be processed according to the semantic or physical characteristics of the sound, depending on the type and content of the information we acquire. In this project, we study the mechanism of event-related sounds that we are exposed to in daily life and guide our movements through passive attention processes.
