Abstract
About AERG

Acoustic Ecology is the study of sound (including music, speech, noise and silence) as a component of natural and artificial environments, with effects on health, cognition and culture. With links to anthropology (cultural attitudes towards sound, silence, music and noise) and environmental sciences (acoustical properties of geographic, geological, and architectural features; the effects of acoustical environments on health and culture), Acoustic Ecology is an integrated field of study that incorporates information and approaches from several component fields of study. Each of the component fields involved-including Music Cognition, Music Therapy, Cognitive Psychology, Neurology, Environmental Studies, Engineering, Architectural Design, Aesthetics and Cultural Studies - contributes both disciplinary method s and interdisciplinary approaches.

The CAER maintains an interactive online Database of literature in Acoustic Ecology and its component science of Sound Cognition (psychoacoustics). Our purpose is to provide a system for streamlining interdisciplinary literature searches in an extended bibliographic field spanning several component disciplines. By so doing, we seek to facilitate the work of researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts in this field
