Music Perception

Chapter
Part of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research book series (SHAR, volume 39)

Abstract

How well do cochlear implant (CI) users perceive music? The short answer is: not very well, at least for the average CI recipient. This chapter reviews much of the published evidence about the perception of musical sounds by CI users, discusses both the design of sound processors and the psychophysical findings that may explain the generally poor perception of music experienced with today’s CI systems, and finally presents some suggestions about how music perception may be improved in future.

Keywords

Cochlear Implant Cochlear Implant User Music Perception Pitch Perception Musical Sound 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
