A Model of Peripheral Auditory Preprocessing
Speech recognition systems as well as models of the binaural system as e.g. described by Blauert (1983) use to require the input signals to be treated in some kind of way before they are processed in higher processing stages. In both applications mentioned above, properties of the auditory system are simulated in one or the other aspect. Thus, it seems reasonable to process the input signals according to the properties of the peripheral auditory system and so, hopefully preserve and even enhance most of the relevant cues the higher processing stages need despite not knowing their very character.
