I am interested in knowing what would happen if sound entering the
back end of the cochlea were perceived as high-pitched while sounds
entering the front entrance of the cochlea were perceived as

This means lower-frequencies would be higher-pitched, while
higher-frequencies would be lower-pitched.

In addition:

1. Bass (bluntness) would be high-pitched.
2. Treble (sharpness) would be low-pitched.

What would be the physical and psychological effects of this?

Thanks in advance,
