displacement of the auditory event from the median plane when an ITD is present.
Mechanisms additional to the cross correlation model have been proposed to
simulate auditory event localization based on both on ITD and IID  5]

already been used for sound source separation  6] The main underlying
observation in most of the existing models is that the auditory event
corresponding to a desired sound source undergoes systematic changes due to the

evaluating interaural differences. Psychologically, there is evidence
that interaural differences are strongly weighted by human listeners at onsets.
This has been demonstrated in experiments related to the precedence effect
. At present, an extremely simple
method of onset detection has been implemented. In each frequency band,
the two envelope signals are summed, and local maxima are identified. A
simple suppression mechanism has been used to model the precedence effect,
whereby selecting an onset causes envelope ....

The weighting is accomplished by a window function, which takes the form w(t) At exp( Gammat= The effective width of the window used is 2 3 ms, as suggestedby the results in , and the peak of the window function is centered at each detected onset. This weighting function is an important part of the precedenceeffect model, allowing suppressed onsets to have some small influence on the IID estimated by the model. The IPD is estimated by a running cross correlator ....
