Dr. Feldman is in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Heidelberg. His monograph was originally published in German in 1963. This work represents an important contribution toward our understanding of how signals received simultaneously by both ears in a binaural hearing situation are processed centrally. In 15 experiments, described in the monograph, Dr. Feldman found that signal detection is improved if the listener is able to separate the signal and the competing noise as coming from two different directions. Dr. Feldman discusses several modes of central auditory processing of binaurally received sound. His monograph presents both experimental findings and models of auditory behavior which anyone will find interesting if he
