We do have a few rudimentary realizing of how the process documents alterations in frequency and depth and of the family members among the ear's spectrum research and our identity of sound caliber. a few of these operations we will replica with auditory types of our personal, or with laboratory analyzers which can function auditory analogs.

The psychoacoustic method of investigating the auditory system is fundamentally different from the physiological. The physiologist can be frustrated by the fact that the species available to him have few of the interesting auditory capabilities of the human. In a sense there are too many discrete outputs available and only a pictorial diagram available to work from rather than even a good functional block diagram. The only technique available to the psychoacoustician, on the other hand, is to anticipate what set of signals and signal changes at the input to the system will serve to assess the system's behavior and to measure systematically the responses at the output.

486) that the difference comes about because the earphone on the ear creates a cavity that enhances the physiological noises of the body (breathing, blood flow, blood pumping, even muscular activity). Remember that we are considering very low level signals in speaking of absolute sensitivity. Attempts to measure the noise occasioned by even minimal normal physiological activity indicate its level and the shape of its spectrum is about right for interfering with minimum audible signals, as shown in Fig.
