Abstract In the past 10 years there have been numerous advances made in our knowledge of how sound localization skills develop during the first few years following birth. In this article we review key findings in this area, with particular attention to: sound localization along the horizontal as compared to vertical plane, the effect of otitis media on localization skills, and developmental research on an illusion, the precedence effect, which plays an important role in localization in the natural environment. Where appropriate, clinical implications of the findings are highlighted.

Notre connaissance de la façon don’t les capacités de localisation des sons se développe durant les premiéres années suivant la naissance a beaucoup progressé au cours des dix derniéres années. Dans le cadre de cet article, nous étudions les principales conclusions en la matiére, et notamment la localisation de son le long du plan horizontal, par rapport au plan vertical, l'effet de l'otite moyenne sur les capacités de localisation, et le développement de la recherche sur une illusion, l'effet de préséance, qui joue un rôle primordial dans la localisation dans l'environment naturel. Le cas échéant, les conséquences cliniques de ces conclusions sont soulignées.
