A battery of tests for assessing the perception of temporal and spatial acoustic cues is described, together with a software platform for implementing the battery. The software runs on a personal computer either with a sound card or with widely used laboratory hardware. The battery is intended for use with neurologically impaired and other naïve subjects, to allow inference at the single-subject level for any given subtest. The aim is to allow a systematic psychoacoustic evaluation of complex sound processing in single patients. Normal values are given for the threshold data for 30 naïve control subjects aged from 20 to 60 years. Future modifications of the battery are allowed by modular software architecture.
