Human complex sound analysis. (1/3016)

The analysis of complex sound features is important for the perception of environmental sounds, speech and music, and may be abnormal in disorders such as specific language impairment in children, and in common adult lesions including stroke and multiple sclerosis. This work addresses the problem of how the human auditory system detects features in complex sound, and uses those features to perceive the auditory world. The work has been carried out using two independent means of testing the same hypotheses; detailed psychophysical studies of neurological patients with central lesions, and functional imaging using positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imaging of normal subjects. The psychophysical and imaging studies have both examined which brain areas are concerned with the analysis of auditory space, and which are concerned with the analysis of timing information in the auditory system. This differs from many previous human auditory studies, which have concentrated on the analysis of sound frequency. The combined lesion and functional imaging approach has demonstrated analysis of the spatial property of sound movement within the right parietal lobe. The timing work has confirmed that the primary auditory cortex is active as a function of the time structure of sound, and therefore not only concerned with frequency representation of sounds.  (+info)

Desynchronizing responses to correlated noise: A mechanism for binaural masking level differences at the inferior colliculus. (2/3016)

We examined the adequacy of decorrelation of the responses to dichotic noise as an explanation for the binaural masking level difference (BMLD). The responses of 48 low-frequency neurons in the inferior colliculus of anesthetized guinea pigs were recorded to binaurally presented noise with various degrees of interaural correlation and to interaurally correlated noise in the presence of 500-Hz tones in either zero or pi interaural phase. In response to fully correlated noise, neurons' responses were modulated with interaural delay, showing quasiperiodic noise delay functions (NDFs) with a central peak and side peaks, separated by intervals roughly equivalent to the period of the neuron's best frequency. For noise with zero interaural correlation (independent noises presented to each ear), neurons were insensitive to the interaural delay. Their NDFs were unmodulated, with the majority showing a level of activity approximately equal to the mean of the peaks and troughs of the NDF obtained with fully correlated noise. Partial decorrelation of the noise resulted in NDFs that were, in general, intermediate between the fully correlated and fully decorrelated noise. Presenting 500-Hz tones simultaneously with fully correlated noise also had the effect of demodulating the NDFs. In the case of tones with zero interaural phase, this demodulation appeared to be a saturation process, raising the discharge at all noise delays to that at the largest peak in the NDF. In the majority of neurons, presenting the tones in pi phase had a similar effect on the NDFs to decorrelating the noise; the response was demodulated toward the mean of the peaks and troughs of the NDF. Thus the effect of added tones on the responses of delay-sensitive inferior colliculus neurons to noise could be accounted for by a desynchronizing effect. This result is entirely consistent with cross-correlation models of the BMLD. However, in some neurons, the effects of an added tone on the NDF appeared more extreme than the effect of decorrelating the noise, suggesting the possibility of additional inhibitory influences.  (+info)

Corticofugal amplification of facilitative auditory responses of subcortical combination-sensitive neurons in the mustached bat. (3/3016)

Recent studies on the bat's auditory system indicate that the corticofugal system mediates a highly focused positive feedback to physiologically "matched" subcortical neurons, and widespread lateral inhibition to physiologically "unmatched" subcortical neurons, to adjust and improve information processing. These findings have solved the controversy in physiological data, accumulated since 1962, of corticofugal effects on subcortical auditory neurons: inhibitory, excitatory, or both (an inhibitory effect is much more frequent than an excitatory effect). In the mustached bat, Pteronotus parnellii parnellii, the inferior colliculus, medial geniculate body, and auditory cortex each have "FM-FM" neurons, which are "combination-sensitive" and are tuned to specific time delays (echo delays) of echo FM components from the FM components of an emitted biosonar pulse. FM-FM neurons are more complex in response properties than cortical neurons which primarily respond to single tones. In the present study, we found that inactivation of the entire FM-FM area in the cortex, including neurons both physiologically matched and unmatched with subcortical FM-FM neurons, on the average reduced the facilitative responses to paired FM sounds by 82% for thalamic FM-FM neurons and by 66% for collicular FM-FM neurons. The corticofugal influence on the facilitative responses of subcortical combination-sensitive neurons is much larger than that on the excitatory responses of subcortical neurons primarily responding to single tones. Therefore we propose the hypothesis that, in general, the processing of complex sounds by combination-sensitive neurons more heavily depends on the corticofugal system than that by single-tone sensitive neurons.  (+info)

The cerebral haemodynamics of music perception. A transcranial Doppler sonography study. (4/3016)

The perception of music has been investigated by several neurophysiological and neuroimaging methods. Results from these studies suggest a right hemisphere dominance for non-musicians and a possible left hemisphere dominance for musicians. However, inconsistent results have been obtained, and not all variables have been controlled by the different methods. We performed a study with functional transcranial Doppler sonography (fTCD) of the middle cerebral artery to evaluate changes in cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) during different periods of music perception. Twenty-four healthy right-handed subjects were enrolled and examined during rest and during listening to periods of music with predominant language, rhythm and harmony content. The gender, musical experience and mode of listening of the subjects were chosen as independent factors; the type of music was included as the variable in repeated measurements. We observed a significant increase of CBFV in the right hemisphere in non-musicians during harmony perception but not during rhythm perception; this effect was more pronounced in females. Language perception was lateralized to the left hemisphere in all subject groups. Musicians showed increased CBFV values in the left hemisphere which were independent of the type of stimulus, and background listeners showed increased CBFV values during harmony perception in the right hemisphere which were independent of their musical experience. The time taken to reach the peak of CBFV was significantly longer in non-musicians when compared with musicians during rhythm and harmony perception. Pulse rates were significantly decreased in non-musicians during harmony perception, probably due to a specific relaxation effect in this subgroup. The resistance index did not show any significant differences, suggesting only regional changes of small resistance vessels but not of large arteries. Our fTCD study confirms previous findings of right hemisphere lateralization for harmony perception in non-musicians. In addition, we showed that this effect is more pronounced in female subjects and in background listeners and that the lateralization is delayed in non-musicians compared with musicians for the perception of rhythm and harmony stimuli. Our data suggest that musicians and non-musicians have different strategies to lateralize musical stimuli, with a delayed but marked right hemisphere lateralization during harmony perception in non-musicians and an attentive mode of listening contributing to a left hemisphere lateralization in musicians.  (+info)

The superior olivary nucleus and its influence on nucleus laminaris: a source of inhibitory feedback for coincidence detection in the avian auditory brainstem. (5/3016)

Located in the ventrolateral region of the avian brainstem, the superior olivary nucleus (SON) receives inputs from nucleus angularis (NA) and nucleus laminaris (NL) and projects back to NA, NL, and nucleus magnocellularis (NM). The reciprocal connections between the SON and NL are of particular interest because they constitute a feedback circuit for coincidence detection. In the present study, the chick SON was investigated. In vivo tracing studies show that the SON projects predominantly to the ipsilateral NM, NL, and NA. In vitro whole-cell recording reveals single-cell morphology, firing properties, and postsynaptic responses. SON neurons are morphologically and physiologically suited for temporal integration; their firing patterns do not reflect the temporal structure of their excitatory inputs. Of most interest, direct stimulation of the SON evokes long-lasting inhibition in NL neurons. The inhibition blocks both intrinsic spike generation and orthodromically evoked activity in NL neurons and can be eliminated by bicuculline methiodide, a potent antagonist for GABAA receptor-mediated neurotransmission. These results strongly suggest that the SON provides GABAergic inhibitory feedback to laminaris neurons. We discuss a mechanism whereby SON-evoked GABAergic inhibition can influence the coding of interaural time differences for sound localization in the avian auditory brainstem.  (+info)

Neural correlates of exposure to traumatic pictures and sound in Vietnam combat veterans with and without posttraumatic stress disorder: a positron emission tomography study. (8/3016)

BACKGROUND: Patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) show a reliable increase in PTSD symptoms and physiological reactivity following exposure to traumatic pictures and sounds. In this study neural correlates of exposure to traumatic pictures and sounds were measured in PTSD. METHODS: Positron emission tomography and H2[15O] were used to measure cerebral blood flow during exposure to combat-related and neutral pictures and sounds in Vietnam combat veterans with and without PTSD. RESULTS: Exposure to traumatic material in PTSD (but not non-PTSD) subjects resulted in a decrease in blood flow in medial prefrontal cortex (area 25), an area postulated to play a role in emotion through inhibition of amygdala responsiveness. Non-PTSD subjects activated anterior cingulate (area 24) to a greater degree than PTSD patients. There were also differences in cerebral blood flow response in areas involved in memory and visuospatial processing (and by extension response to threat), including posterior cingulate (area 23), precentral (motor) and inferior parietal cortex, and lingual gyrus. There was a pattern of increases in PTSD and decreases in non-PTSD subjects in these areas. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that functional alternations in specific cortical and subcortical brain areas involved in memory, visuospatial processing, and emotion underlie the symptoms of patients with PTSD.  (+info)

Report on the Computational Auditory Scene Analysis Workshop Malcolm Slaney, Dan Ellis, Dave Rosenthal Montreal, Quebec, Canada, August 19 and 20th, 1995. The first workshop on Computational Auditory Scene Analysis (CASA) was held August 19 and 20th at the 1995 IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence) in Montreal. Organized by Hiroshi Okuno and David Rosenthal, the workshop was attended by about thirty people doing work on scientific and engineering models of human audition and signal processing. Perhaps the workshop will best be remembered as the largest gathering to date of people interested in computer models of auditory scene analysis (ASA). The attendees were nearly evenly split between those that are interested in understanding human auditory perception and those that want to solve problems in auditory perception, perhaps using some of the techniques of auditory scene analysis. Al Bregman served as keynote speaker for the conference. His book, Auditory Scene ...
Research on brain mechanisms of deviance detection and sensory memory trace formation, best indexed by the mismatch negativity, mainly relied on the investigation of responses elicited by auditory stimuli. However, comparable less research reported the mismatch negativity elicited by somatosensory stimuli. More importantly, little is known on the functional features of mismatch deviant and standard responses across different sensory modalities. To directly compare different sensory modalities, we adopted a crossmodal roving paradigm and collected event-related potentials elicited by auditory, non-nociceptive somatosensory, and nociceptive trains of stimuli, during Active and Passive attentional conditions. We applied a topographical segmentation analysis to cluster successive scalp topographies with quasi-stable landscape of significant differences to extract crossmodal mismatch responses. We obtained three main findings. First, across different sensory modalities and attentional conditions, the ...

Auditory processing disorder (APD) is defined as a specific deficit in the processing of auditory information along the central auditory nervous system, including bottom-up and top-down neural connectivity. Even though music comprises a big part of audition, testing music perception in APD population has not yet gained wide attention in research. This work tests the hypothesis that deficits in rhythm perception occur in a group of subjects with APD. The primary focus of this study is to measure perception of a simple auditory rhythm, i.e., short isochronous sequences of beats, in APD children and to compare their performance to age-matched normal controls. The secondary question is to study the relationship between cognition and auditory processing of rhythm perception. We tested 39 APD children and 25 control children aged between 6 and 12 years via (a) clinical APD tests, including a monaural speech in noise test, (b) isochrony task, a test measuring the detection of small deviations from perfect

Many kids see their idols like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber on TV and want to be just like them. Its no wonder, who wouldnt want to be rich and famous doing what they love to do - Sing!. The biggest problem most kids have these days is finding auditions for singers within their age group. Yes, there are reality TV shows such as Americas Got Talent and American Idol that have given many their start, but getting onto those shows is not always easy and competition is beyond fierce. Not to mention that those shows may or may not be holding casting calls for singers or acts in your area. If you live in a small town or a rural state, you most likely will not be close to any of the audition locations.. So kids need to find singer auditions elsewhere - Community theater groups, community choirs, local schools and churches all hold auditions for singers and many do take kids into their groups.. Once you establish yourself in your local community, then you can start gaining a larger fan base.. These ...

PY - 2007/1/1. Y1 - 2007/1/1. N2 - Temporal proximity is a critical determinant for cross-modal integration by multisensory neurons. Information content may serve as an additional binding factor for more complex or less natural multisensory information. Letters and speech sounds, which form the basis of literacy acquisition, are not naturally related but associated through explicit learning. We investigated the relative importance of temporal proximity and information content on the integration of letters and speech sounds by manipulating both factors within the same functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) design. The results reveal significant interactions between temporal proximity and content congruency in anterior and posterior auditory association cortex, indicating that temporal synchrony ...

The Chair of Logistics would like to inform you that the article Embracing the Potentials of Intermodal Transport in Ethiopia: Strategies to Facilitate Export-Led Growth was published in the journal Sustainability. Ethiopia is still a developing, low-income country that has to overcome several barriers in order to attract foreign companies to become a middle-income country. Therefore, efficient intermodal transport is seen as one of the key contributors to facilitating export-led growth. This study seeks to map the current state of intermodal transport in Ethiopia by synthesizing a holistic picture of current challenges and to propose strategies for dealing with them. Through the application of a moderated nominal group technique (NGT), the study condenses 19 challenges for intermodal transport in Ethiopia and assesses the importance of resolving those challenges in order to facilitate logistics performance. Moreover, strategies are proposed to improve the current state of intermodal ...
Monitoring techniques are a key technology for examining the conditions in various scenarios, e.g., structural conditions, weather conditions, and disasters. In order to understand such scenarios, the appropriate extraction of their features from observation data is important. This paper proposes a monitoring method that allows sound environments to be expressed as a sound pattern. To this end, the concept of synesthesia is exploited. That is, the keys, tones, and pitches of the monitored sound are expressed using the three elements of color, that is, the hue, saturation, and brightness, respectively. In this paper, it is assumed that the hue, saturation, and brightness can be detected from the chromagram, sonogram, and sound spectrogram, respectively, based on a previous synesthesia experiment. Then, the sound pattern can be drawn using color, yielding a

Temporal patterning of neural responses to complex sounds are hypothesized to play a critical role in conveying the information in speech, music, and environmental sounds, both in quiet and especially in noisy backgrounds. These patterns include both the representation of temporal fine structure and the slower fluctuations associated with the envelopes of complex sounds. This workshop will comprise a series of presentations that provide state-of-the-art information about the origins of temporal patterning in the auditory periphery and transformations of these patterns along the ascending neural pathways. We will also hear about implications of temporal patterning of neural responses for understanding animal behavior and human psychophysical performance, for listeners with normal hearing and hearing loss. Finally, recent applications of ideas concerning temporal patterning to speech processing and hearing-aid strategies will be presented ...

A reference work for the emerging field of multisensory integration, covering multidisciplinary research that goes beyond the traditional sense-by-sense approach and recognizes that perception is fundamentally a multisensory experience. This landmark reference work brings together for the first time in one volume the most recent research from different areas of the emerging field of multisensory integration. After many years of using a modality-specific sense-by-sense approach, researchers across different disciplines in neuroscience and psychology now recognize that perception is fundamentally a multisensory experience. To understand how the brain synthesizes information from the different senses, we must study not only how information from each sensory modality is decoded but also how this information interacts with the sensory processing taking place within other sensory channels. The findings cited in The Handbook of Multisensory Processes suggest that there are broad underlying
A study was conducted to determine whether newborn infants organize auditory streams in a manner similar to that of adults. A series of three experiments investigated the ability of three- to four-day-old infants to discriminate repeated rising and falling four-tone sequences in two configurations of source timbre and spatial position. It was hypothesized that if the sequences were organized into two auditory streams on the basis of timbre and spatial position, one of the configurations should be discriminable from its reversal, while the other should not. The sequences were tested with different pitch and temporal intervals separating the tones. Sequences were discriminated for the first configuration by adults at both fast tempo/small interval and slow tempo/large interval combinations, while only the latter was discriminated by newborns as measured with a non-nutritive, high-amplitude sucking paradigm. Neither adults nor infants could discriminate the sequence reversals for the second ...
Example A. Teacher: Listen. Which vowel do you hear: bed? (an identification task) Student: (points to letter a) Teacher: Oh. That says /-a-/. Are these two sounds the same or different? Listen: /-e-/ (pause) /-a-/? Example B. Student (thought the teacher said weed when she actually said wheat - an identification error) Teacher: Those words are almost the same, but the last sound is a little different. Listen: wheat (pause) weed. Do they sound the same to you? In Example A, if the student says the phonemes sound the same, the student has made an auditory error. The teacher can give the student feedback like, Yes, those sounds are very close to each other. They are almost the same. But they are a little different. Listen again. The sounds can then be produced slightly elongated to highlight the differences. If the student is asked to say the sounds, he will likely produce two sounds that sound very, very similar to each other. This may be a task for the speech specialist. The teacher, ...

In the auditory domain, Josef Rauschecker is often credited with originating the view that auditory cortex is subdivided into two processing streams, a dorsal where stream and a ventral what stream (Rauschecker, 1998; Rauschecker and Scott, 2009). However, the idea of dual auditory streams predates Rauscheckers influential papers by several decades. Deutsch and Roll proposed separate what and where mechanisms for hearing in their 1976 report (Deutsch and Roll, 1976) citing then recent animal neurophysiological evidence for the distinction (Evans and Nelson, 1973). And a historical precedent to a dual-stream model of audition goes even farther back to the work of Poljak who in 1926 discussed the various subdivisions in the connections of the acoustic nerve and came to a conclusion that foreshadowed current dual-stream ideas by the better part of a century ...

The present results provide behavioral evidence that stimuli can be processed by a mechanism that is selective for particular combinations of spectral and temporal modulation frequencies. We trained listeners to discriminate the depth of spectral, temporal, or upward spectrotemporal modulation and tested the generalization of their learning to the trained conditions of the other groups as well as to the depth discrimination of downward spectrotemporal modulation and the detection of upward spectrotemporal modulation. Three influences of training were dependent on the spectrotemporal characteristics of the trained stimulus. First, and most importantly, there was no generalization of training-induced improvement to the untrained depth-discrimination conditions. Learning on isolated spectral (0.5 cyc/oct; 0 Hz) or temporal (0 cyc/oct; 32 Hz) modulation did not generalize to either direction of spectrotemporal modulation (0.5 cyc/oct; ±32 Hz), even though the spectrotemporal conditions shared one ...
This thesis is concerned with the cross-modal and synaesthetic perception of musical and visual stimuli. Each of these types of perception has been researched separately, and a hypothesis is presented here that accounts for both cross-modal matching and the development of synaesthesia. This hypothesis claims that sensory information can be evaluated in another modality by using a scale of comparison in that modality. The first set of experiments examines normal subjects performing cross-modal matching with coloured circles and auditory stimuli that vary in complexity. It is shown that subjects use a variety of scales of comparison from both visual and auditory modalities to form matches. As the stimuli increase in complexity, the individual variation in cross-modal matching also increases. The second set of experiments examines matching performance using higher order stimuli, by having subjects evaluate fragments of melodies and complete melodies on affective and descriptive adjective scales. ...
This study investigated the ability of individuals with Parkinsons disease (PD) to synthesize temporal information across the senses, namely audition and vision. Auditory signals (A) are perceived as lasting longer than visual signals (V) when they are compared together, since attention is captured and sustained more easily than for visual information. We used the audiovisual illusion to probe for disturbances in brain networks that govern the resolution of time in two intersensory conditions that putatively differ in their attention demands. PD patients and controls judged the relative duration of successively presented pairs of unimodal (AA, VV) and crossmodal (VA, AV) signals whilst undergoing fMRI. There were four main findings. First, underestimation of time was exaggerated in PD when timing depended on controlled attention (AV), whereas subtle deficits were found when audition dominated and attention was more easily sustained (VA). Second, group differences in regional activation were observed

We varied the orientation of the body relative to the visible surroundings and, independently, relative to the direction of balance. This created 3 tilt conditions that are commonly believed to create conflict between the visual, vestibular, and somatosensory systems. First, we replicated earlier effects, confirming the existence of the visual frame effect and the Müller effect, when participants made passive judgments about orientation. In later experiments using the same tilt conditions, participants executed a pointing task. In the pointing task errors were greatly reduced and in some cases were entirely absent. Based on these data (and similar findings ...

Categorisation is a fundamental cognitive process that plays a central role in everyday behaviour and action. Whereas previous studies have investigated the categorisation of isolated everyday sounds, this paper presents an experiment to investigate the cognitive categorisation of everyday sounds within their original context. A group of eighteen expert and non-expert listeners took part in a free sorting task using 110 sounds identified within ambisonic reproductions of urban soundscapes. The participants were asked to sort the objects into groups of sounds that served a similar purpose in the overall perception of the soundscape. Following this, the participants were asked to provide descriptive labels for the groups they had formed. The results were analysed using hierarchical agglomerative clustering and non-metric multidimensional scaling (MDS) to explore both the structure and dimensionality of the data. The resulting hierarchical clustering of objects show three top level categories ...
The play could easily have been a monologue, which is what the Murakami story is. Instead, Sleep is 70 minutes of near-constant video projected into the onstage cube that is the shows circumscribed world. Some 130 sound cues employ an array of 100 or so musical instruments that subtly control the auditory environment. As the story slips into an alternate existence, the actors move in a choreography with ever-so-slightly abstracted normality.. Reality is adjusted as a composer would revise a musical score: Her husband acts like hes doing everyday tasks … but the pace and rhythm changes, says Dickstein. Thats how we tell the story of the womans changing perspective. We see the world around her change.

In the Performing Arts department, One Acts - a series of brief, single act scenes that come together to create full performances - will happen even in these unusual times. Despite the changes necessary because of COVID-19 precautions, the actors and directors plan on performing the one act plays outside sometime in December.. In the past few weeks auditions have been taking place, and rehearsals are now in full swing. The audition for One Acts this year was technically very similar to past auditions. However, it felt more exciting and important because the performing arts students, especially singers, have lost so much this year, said student actor Nora Jarquin 22.. The One Act audition process followed the safety protocols of wearing masks throughout the audition and socially distancing outside. The energy was a little low compared to years in the past, but I think that is because of the masks, said Jarquin.. Finding ways to connect between the actors in each act was challenging because ...
In 2012, during her junior year of high school, Martinez participated in the MSG Varsity Talent Show, a televised talent competition. She sang The Beatles rendition of Money (Thats What I Want) by Barrett Strong and Shake Me, Wake Me (When Its Over) by The Four Tops. She was eliminated in the second round.[33]. Later in 2012, Martinez auditioned for the third season of The Voice. She had not watched the show herself prior to the audition.[23] The initial, untelevised audition was an open call, held at Javits Center. She recalls that while she and her mother were driving to the audition, her mothers car broke down before they reached the Midtown Tunnel, and the two were forced to hitchhike a taxicab in order to get there. Several months after the initial audition, while at Roosevelt Field Mall, Martinez received word that she had advanced to the second round. She then received multiple callbacks until she was finally selected to audition on the show itself.[15]. Martinez auditioned ...

  • Previous studies with animals showed that vagal activity increases during relaxing auditory stimulation and boosts the expression of a protein called c-Fos in the auditory cortex. (
  • The P300 test was used in this study to analyze auditory attention to a sound stimulus by monitoring the prefrontal cortex and auditory cortex activity via electrodes placed on the forehead, cranial vertex and earlobes. (
  • The posterior regions of the left auditory cortex were modulated by the alternating tones, indicating that there may be areas of the brains responsible for stream segregation. (
  • A proposed multiphase compensation model suggests two distinct types of bottom-up related tinnitus: an auditory cortex related tinnitus and a parahippocampal cortex related tinnitus. (
  • We demonstrate that top-down related tinnitus is related to a change in the pregenual anterior cingulate cortex that corresponds to increased activity in the auditory cortex. (
  • We first present songbirds as an attractive model to explore how neuroestrogens in auditory cortex modulate vocal communication processing and learning. (
  • Further, we examine how estrogens may enhance vocal learning and auditory memory consolidation in sensory cortex via mechanisms similar to those found in the hippocampus of rodents and birds. (
  • Feedback signals from the primary auditory cortex (A1) can shape the receptive field properties of neurons in the ventral division of the medial geniculate body (MGBv). (
  • Here we demonstrate mistuning sensitivity in the thalamus and that feedback from the primary auditory cortex is required for the normal ability of ferrets to detect a mistuned harmonic within a complex sound. (
  • Auditory cortex processes variation in our own speech. (
  • Here we record from single units in auditory cortex of rats performing a self-initiated go/no-go auditory task. (
  • These are collected by about 30,000 nerve fibers which go down the auditory nerve and after several stops reach the auditory cortex. (
  • Much as in both the visual and tactile systems, there seems to be a fairly direct mapping from position on the cochlea to position in the auditory cortex. (
  • But in primates, for example, little is known about exactly what features are extracted in the auditory cortex. (
  • A likely generator of the N1 response is the auditory cortex, which matures differently without auditory stimulation during a critical period. (
  • Neural responses were measured from electrodes implanted over auditory association cortex in the posterior superior temporal gyrus (pSTG) of epileptic patients. (
  • 1996 ) showed that three different kinds of visual motion (optic flow, coherent and biological motion) yield foci of activation within stimulus-specific regions of the left superior temporal gyrus (STG), regions that they were able to localize unambiguously in the auditory cortex. (
  • We tested the specific contributions of visual and auditory cortex to tactile perception in healthy adult volunteers using anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). (
  • We measured perceptual sensitivity before, during, and after tDCS application over either visual cortex or auditory cortex. (
  • Conversely, anodal stimulation over auditory cortex selectively improved tactile frequency sensitivity, but not spatial acuity. (
  • These results reveal a clear double-dissociation in the crossmodal contributions of visual and auditory cortex to tactile perception, and support a supramodal brain organization scheme in which visual and auditory cortex comprise distributed networks that support shape and frequency perception, independent of sensory input modality. (
  • WA, a condition resulting in severely disrupted auditory comprehension, primarily occurs following a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) to the left temporo-parietal cortex. (
  • Massive congratulations to Julia Erb from the @ObleserLab being now in press at @eLife with her N=64-fMRI-encoding/decoding monster "Temporal selectivity declines in the aging human auditory cortex", with Lea-Maria Schmitt and myself as co-authors. (
  • The first relate to the auditory cortex. (
  • This process is accomplished by operations happening in three separate brain areas: the brainstem, thalamus, and auditory cortex. (
  • A great deal of research suggests that neurons in the auditory cortex, especially in the right cerebral hemisphere, are important for distinguishing fine gradations of frequency, creating the psychological sensation of pitch. (
  • their existence sheds new light on the functional architecture of the human auditory cortex. (
  • Studies in the auditory system, for example, have demonstrated that performance in detecting sounds and gaps in noise, or the discrimination of lexical stimuli, varies with the power and phase of rhythmic activity between about 1 and 12 Hz ( 4 ⇓ ⇓ ⇓ ⇓ - 9 ). (
  • However, exactly how auditory stimuli influence heart rate control by the vagus nerve was poorly understood. (
  • Multistable auditory perception is a cognitive phenomenon in which certain auditory stimuli can be perceived in multiple ways. (
  • A problem of large behavioral importance is the question of how to group auditory stimuli. (
  • Early automatic hyperarousal in response to neutral novel auditory stimuli among trauma-exposed individuals with and without PTSD: An ERP study. (
  • For example Meredith and Stein ( 1986 , 1996 ) and Stein, Meredith, and Wallace ( 1993 ) found in cat superior colliculus multimodal neurons that respond to visual as well as auditory stimuli and integrate (non-linearly) signals of these two modalities. (
  • In addition, audiovisual mirror neurons respond even when only the sound of an action is perceived, without any significant activation for auditory stimuli not related to action (Kohler et al. (
  • One area of interest is auditory visual integration of moving stimuli. (
  • Human fMRI data show that many cortical areas are activated by both visual and auditory moving stimuli. (
  • Patients in the auditory group received an additional control visit in which the same painful stimuli were administered, but white noise was substituted for the alpha entrainment. (
  • Objective: This work investigates the nature of the comprehension impairment in Wernicke's aphasia (WA), by examining the relationship between deficits in auditory processing of fundamental, non-verbal acoustic stimuli and auditory comprehension. (
  • Methods: We examined analysis of basic acoustic stimuli in WA participants (n = 10) using auditory stimuli reflective of theories of cortical auditory processing and of speech cues. (
  • Conclusion: These results demonstrate the co-occurrence of a deficit in fundamental auditory processing of temporal and spectro-temporal non-verbal stimuli in WA, which may have a causal contribution to the auditory language comprehension impairment. (
  • Auditory stimuli were filtered (300Hz low-pass) and all stimuli were presented in the context of 50dB of white noise. (
  • The question addressed here was whether continuous moving auditory stimuli can also influence visual motion perception under the same experimental conditions. (
  • Such perception is called veridical perception-the direct perception of stimuli as they exist. (
  • Veridical perception also causes a person to experience changing stimuli as if they were stable: even though the sensory image of an approaching tiger grows larger, for example, one tends to perceive that the animal's size remains unchanged. (
  • Auditory and visual stimuli could each occur at high or low elevations. (
  • These multisensory stimuli could be congruent or incongruent for three correspondence types: cross-modal featural (auditory pitch/visual elevation), within-modal featural (auditory pitch/auditory elevation) and cross-modal spatial (auditory and visual elevation). (
  • Previous research has demonstrated that auditory and visual stimuli have individual effects on the accuracy of a person's estimation of time-to-contact (TTC), the time at which two objects collide. (
  • Fish perceive auditory and vestibular stimuli through a common mechanism. (
  • Incongruent stimuli did not lead children in the age 4-6 group to select the auditory component of the stimulus more often than the visual. (
  • Moreover, their response to stimuli degraded by frequency filtering paralleled the subjects' behavioural performance in voice-perception tasks that used these stimuli. (
  • Visual perception of two dimensional stimuli. (
  • One is auditory stream segregation, in which two different frequencies are presented in a temporal pattern. (
  • The temporal dynamics observed in auditory stream segregation are similar to those of bistable visual perception, suggesting that the mechanisms mediating multistable perception, the alternating dominance and suppression of multiple competing interpretations of ambiguous sensory input, might be shared across modalities. (
  • Randomness also characterized the phenomenon, as the first phase of perception is longer in duration than subsequent phases, and then the "steady-state of the temporal dynamics of auditory streaming is purely stochastic with no long-term trend. (
  • Auditory perception probably relies on a combination of spectral and temporal information available in the acoustic stimulus. (
  • Auditory temporal processing, reading, and phonological awareness among aging adults. (
  • Dyslexia as multi-deficit disorder: Working memory and auditory temporal processing. (
  • Auditory spectral versus spatial temporal order judgment: Threshold distribution analysis. (
  • The effect of ADHD and methylphenidate treatment on adult auditory temporal order judgment thresholds. (
  • We have more recently followed-up these initial results, showing that frequency and severity of auditory hallucinations correlate positively with increased levels of glutamate in temporal brain regions, but negatively in frontal (ACC) regions, as would be predicted from the VOICE model for auditory hallucinations proposed by Hugdahl in 2009. (
  • Using the MRS method we have preliminary evidence of a positive correlation between Glu levels and frequency and severity of auditory hallucinations in the left upper posterior temporal lobe, and a corresponding negative correlation in the medial frontal lobe. (
  • The temporal theory of hearing states that our perception of sound depends on the temporal patterns with which neurons respond to sound in the cochlea. (
  • Auditory processing was evaluated using structured tasks designed to reveal the listeners' ability to perceive temporal and spectral cues. (
  • This workshop will comprise a series of presentations that provide state-of-the-art information about the origins of temporal patterning in the auditory periphery and transformations of these patterns along the ascending neural pathways. (
  • One goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of cutting-edge research related to temporal representations, bringing together researchers from a wide range of auditory laboratories. (
  • Another goal is to provide, for graduate students and post-doctoral trainees, a focused overview of recent findings related to auditory temporal responses and related signal processing. (
  • Coding of temporal envelope vs. temporal fine structure in the auditory nerve - still a useful distinction? (
  • These three studies help improve our understanding of how sensitivity to temporal cues can affect the ability of listeners to perceive auditory information. (
  • Findings of poor amplitude modulation thresholds and slopes in children with APD may suggest the inefficiency of the auditory system in extracting temporal cues, potentially leading to poor speech recognition in noisy conditions. (
  • This indicates that the temporal window of audio-tactile integration is comparable to that found in the visual-auditory domain. (
  • Without its underlying temporal structure, perception would be unthinkable. (
  • Neural correlates of individual differences in temporal Gestalt perception. (
  • A cortico-striatal neural system enhances auditory perception through temporal context processing. (
  • Whilst damage to posterior superior temporal areas is associated with auditory linguistic comprehension impairments, functional-imaging indicates that these areas may not be specific to speech processing but part of a network for generic auditory analysis. (
  • Auditory spectral, temporal and spectro-temporal analysis was assessed using pure-tone frequency discrimination, frequency modulation (FM) detection and the detection of dynamic modulation (DM) in ?moving ripple? (
  • We have argued instead that speech perception is bilaterally organized in the superior temporal lobes with minimal frontal/motor modulation. (
  • We hypothesize that temporal lobe circuits are primarily responsible for both of these sources of influence on speech perception. (
  • The present study relates self-reported musical experience and objectively measured musical aptitude to a skill that is important in music perception: temporal resolution (or acuity). (
  • Many important cues for speech and music perception require AC temporal processing ( Phillips, 1999 ). (
  • Results: ESM impaired perception and comprehension of speech, not tones, at electrode sites in the posterior temporal lobe. (
  • Rhythm is the pattern of temporal intervals within a musical measure or phrase that in turn creates the perception of stronger and weaker beats. (
  • 2 Motor corte Superior temporal gyrus/auditory corte Pitch A percept according to which periodic sounds may be ordered from low to high. (
  • Roseboom, Kawabe, & Nishida, 2013) In this study we attempted to fill in this research gap by examining the effect of auditory speed cues over visual speed cues in a two-dimensional TTC scenario, and by determining if an object's temporal presence influences accurate perception of TTC by using occlusion. (
  • According to Valenti, a professor at the UNESP campus in Marília and principal investigator for the study, recent research had already shown that heart rate can fluctuate in response to auditory stimulation and that these variations are controlled by the vagus nerve. (
  • Binaural Electric-Acoustic Fusion: Speech Perception under Dichotic Stimulation. (
  • Binaural Electric-Acoustic Fusion: Speech Perception under Dichotic Stimulation A majority of hearing impaired people suffers from social isolation because they face difficulties understanding speech in noisy environment, for instance in a busy street or in a restaurant full of talkative people. (
  • Visual and auditory stimulation at 3 frequencies in the alpha-band range caused an analgesic effect in participants exposed to experimental pain, according to a study recently published in the European Journal of Pain . (
  • however, visual stimulation at 8 and 10 Hz was associated with a numerically larger decrease in pain ratings than the auditory entrainment. (
  • This provides further evidence that external stimulation can modulate pain perception and requires further study to ascertain its relevance to clinical pain states. (
  • Ecsy K, Jones AKP, Brown CA. Alpha-range visual and auditory stimulation reduces the perception of pain. (
  • s (Exp Brain Res 157:537-541, 2004) paradigm (involving an indirect behavioural measure of the bouncing-disks effect), in which the 2D visual display was presented together with either a brief tone, a continuous moving sound, or in the absence of any form of auditory stimulation. (
  • The results of a second experiment revealed that the effect of the continuous moving sound reported in Experiment 1 was not caused simply by the presence of continuous auditory stimulation per se. (
  • Objective: We compared intracranial recordings of auditory event-related responses with electrocortical stimulation mapping (ESM) to determine their functional relationship. (
  • Boatman-Reich, D. / Intracranial mapping of auditory perception : Event-related responses and electrocortical stimulation . (
  • We show that state affects perception via two mechanisms: one where the amplitude of slow-wave activity influences the scaling of early sensory evidence, and another where the time profile of the activity influences sensory decisions in areas governing cognitive processes. (
  • The qualities of perception depend not only on the sensory inputs but also on the brain state before stimulus presentation. (
  • Although the collective evidence from neuroimaging studies for a relation between prestimulus state and perception is strong, the interpretation in the context of sensory computations or decision processes has remained difficult. (
  • To dissociate influences of state on earlier sensory representations and higher-level decision processes, we collected behavioral and EEG data in human participants performing two auditory discrimination tasks relying on distinct acoustic features. (
  • Within auditory networks, we found that phase had no direct influence on choice, whereas power in task-specific frequency bands affected the encoding of sensory evidence. (
  • Hence, it is tempting to interpret the reported prestimulus effects in neuroimaging studies as direct evidence for a link between the neural gain of early sensory cortices and perception. (
  • We are also exploring feedback training methods that could leverage other intact sensory systems to circumvent abnormal auditory processing. (
  • Behavioural engagement can enhance sensory perception. (
  • Timing perception is an inherent feature of all sensory experience. (
  • Sensory entrainment mechanisms in auditory perception: neural synchronization and cortico-striatal activation. (
  • These results reinforce the hypothesis of abnormal neuronal connectivity in the pathophysiology of ASD and shed new light on the genes that increase risk for abnormal sensory perception in ASD. (
