    "The brain of a person with normal hearing can focus on sound from a person you’re talking to in a restaurant, while ignoring a conversation at a nearby table"

    I never could. Certainly could not hear one person at a party.

    This is very cool and it's also why poor understanding of science kid is annoying. "Believing" that the eardrum is a transducer so the human auditory system in all its sophistication can be ignored is not science but its opposite.

    Could affect our imaging/stage perception if "shifting visual focus" while listening.

    @Kunlun, I actually believe that out new scientist is sincere and sincerely interested in science of hearing too. Let's give him chance!

    Did I get the right impression that you are a medical man? Maybe you too must have felt some frustration with audiophoolish misinformation.

    Anyway, some relationships start off on the wrong foot and end up as best of friends. I posit (well, usually in private only) that he is more of an SBAF guy than a hydrogenaudio guy. Or will be.

    Yes, that's exactly why he rubs my fur the wrong way. Hopefully, you're right and he will settle in.
