Pitch is important for conveying the intonation of speech sounds and for the perception of music. The ability to hear changes in pitch (frequency discrimination) is adversely affected by cochlear hearing loss. This chapter describes frequency discrimination and pitch perception in normal and impaired hearing. Topics include experimental data on frequency discrimination for pure tones and for complex tones; analysis of the results in terms of pitch theories; implications for the basic understanding of mechanisms of pitch perception; and perceptual consequences of abnormal pitch perception.

Keywords:   pitch theories, temporal coding, place coding, pure tones, complex tones
