An Overview of Technically Oriented Psychoacoustics in Finland
This paper presents a short summary of educational and research activities in Finland related to psychoacoustics. Particularly, activities at the Helsinki University of Technology (TKK), in the Laboratory of Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing, are described in more detail. This includes the curriculum of courses offered. Computer-based psychoacoustical experimentation principles used in the course 'Communication Acoustics' are characterised. Examples of successful research projects, such as psychoacoustically oriented auditory modelling for sound quality measurements, computational modelling of spatial hearing, and psychoacoustical principles in signal processing, are referenced. A list of other psychoacoustical or more general hearing research in Finland is compiled.

- Acta Acustica united with Acustica, published together with the European Acoustics Association (EAA), is an international, peer-reviewed journal on acoustics. It publishes original articles on all subjects in the field of acoustics, such as general linear acoustics, nonlinear acoustics, macrosonics, flow acoustics, atmospheric sound, underwater sound, ultrasonics, physical acoustics, structural acoustics, noise control, active control, environmental noise, building acoustics, room acoustics, acoustic materials, acoustic signal processing, computational and numerical acoustics, hearing, audiology and psychoacoustics, speech, musical acoustics, electroacoustics, auditory quality of systems. It reports on original scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications. The journal considers scientific papers, technical and applied papers, book reviews, short communications, doctoral thesis abstracts, etc. In irregular intervals also special issues and review articles are published.
