We don't spend a lot of time in this book talking about how humans perceive space-most discussions are limited to binaural perception that ends at the ears. In chapters two and three, we spend quite a bit of time talking about the dominance of temporal perception in hearing and spatial perception in seeing, while acknowledging that both of these senses still perform admirably that which the other does so well. But how do the brain audibly perceive space audibly? Here's an interesting research article that examines how the brain separates sound objects from their accompanying reverberation, in short how the brain perceives space: https://www.eneuro.org/content/4/1/ENEURO.0007-17.2017.
