Chapter 2 covers acoustic and psychoacoustic concepts.
The first level is that of our concept of sound, namely the acoustic and psychoacoustic level, the shift being what I have called "the end of the Fourier era." Characteristic of this shift is a moving away from linear acoustic models, separable and independent parameters of aural perception, and stimulus-response behavioral models towards a recognition of the role of nonlinearity, multidimensional percepts, and information processing.

In my room, the surround speakers blended perfectly with the main front channel speakers and provided the necessary psychoacoustic cues with which to truly enjoy home theater to its fullest.
Specifically, XPN-AM exploits a psychoacoustic model to maximize the reach and intelligibility of AM transmissions while lowering distortion and reducing listening fatigue.

These include audiometric evaluation (n=126, 99%), head MRI studies (n=78, 62%), tympanometry (n=67, 54%), ABR (n=55, 43%), complete blood work-up (including thyroid stimulating hormone and vitamin B12 levels) (n=33, 26%), psychoacoustic testing (e.g.,: tinnitus pitch and loudness matching tests) (n=23, 18%), temporal bone CT scan (n=13, 10%), and single positron emission tomography (SPECT) (n=3,2%).
