CochSim - Cochlear Simulation teaching tool

CochSim is a dynamic simulation of the time and frequency analysis performed by the ear. Sound signals such as sinewaves, pulse trains, sawtooth waves and vowels can be fed into an auditory filterbank and the output monitored in a moving animated display. The program shows the vibration of the oval window and the basilar membrane, the haircell activity against filter frequency and time, and an average excitation pattern across the cochlea.

EFxHist - Fundamental Frequency Histograms

EFxHist is a program to analyse joint speech and laryngograph recordings. EFxHist locates each pitch period in the laryngograph waveform and produces statistical analyses including distributions of fundamental frequency, closed-quotient, jitter and shimmer. More information.
