      Riddoch proposes three types of non-cochlear sound:
  • Synaesthetic -- the perception of sound via stimulation of another sense.
  • Infrasonic sound -- sound waves below 20Hz can be detected by the skin and the chest cavity resonates at 80Hz and below. Riddoch also points to the example of profoundly deaf (from birth) percussionist Evelyn Glennie (1993) who maintains that hearing is a specialized form of touch.
  • Auditory imagination -- including memory, imagination, hallucination, dreaming which all excite the auditory cortex.
