Spatial hearing is an essential auditory function. It allows us to localize, segregate, and group sound sources in space. Accurate sound source localization is a fundamental ability for understanding and following speech in everyday situations, as it contributes to our capacity to discern between target signal streams and other simultaneous sound sources that can be regarded as noise (cocktail party processing).
