Human hearing beats the Uncertainty Principle

Our psychophysical study of the acuity of simultaneous perception of the timing and frequency of a sound signal just appeared in Phys. Rev. Lett. We show that many of our subjects can make simultaneous judgements of the timing and frequency of a sound whose accuracies exceed the bounds from the Fourier Uncertainty Principle, sometimes by factors exceeding 10.
