    Illusione auditiva
    Sullo stesso piano dello studio dei paradossi e delle ambiguità nella percezione visiva (per es. le illusioni ottiche, M.C. Escher), la ricerca sulle illusioni uditive hanno contribuito in maniera significativa a comprendere i processi percettivi e cognitivi di decodificazione degli impulsi sensoriali sonori e musicali. Con i lavori di Jean-Claude Risset e di R.N. Shepard (creatore dei suoni di Shepard), le illusioni uditive hanno permesso lo sviluppo di tecniche e (...)

    Illusion auditive
    Parallèlement à l’étude des paradoxes et des ambiguïtés de la perception visuelle (c’est-à-dire, des illusions optiques, comme par exemple chez M.C. Escher), les recherches sur les illusions auditives ont contribué d’une manière significative à une meilleure compréhension des processus perceptifs et cognitifs du sonore et du musical. Avec les travaux de Jean-Claude Risset et de R.N. Shepard (créateur des sons de Shepard), les illusions auditives ont (...)

    Ilusión Auditiva
    Así como el estudio de paradojas y ambigüedades en la percepción visual (es decir, ilusiones ópticas, por ejemplo las de M. C. Escher), las ilusiones auditivas como área de investigación han contribuido de modo significativo a la comprensión de los procesos perceptivos y cognitivos de decodificación de estímulos sensoriales sonoros y musicales. El trabajo de Jean-Claude Risset y R. N. Shepard (creador de los tonos de Shepard), ha contribuido también al desarrollo de las (...)

    In the same vein as the study of paradoxes and ambiguities in visual perception (i.e. optical illusions, for example M C Escher), auditory illusion as an area of research has contributed significantly to our understanding of perceptual and cognitive processes in decoding sonic and musical sensory inputs. With the work of Jean-Claude Risset and R. N. Shepard (creator of Shepard tones), it has also contributed to the development of electroacoustic techniques and means, in particular in the (...)
