Electronic hearing devices typically used for patients with normal outer and middle ear function, but defective inner ear function. In the COCHLEA, the hair cells (HAIR CELLS, VESTIBULAR) may be absent or damaged but there are residual nerve fibers. The device electrically stimulates the COCHLEAR NERVE to create sound sensation.
Auditory Perceptual Disorders
Acquired or developmental cognitive disorders of AUDITORY PERCEPTION characterized by a reduced ability to perceive information contained in auditory stimuli despite intact auditory pathways. Affected individuals have difficulty with speech perception, sound localization, and comprehending the meaning of inflections of speech.
The branch of physics that deals with sound and sound waves. In medicine it is often applied in procedures in speech and hearing studies. With regard to the environment, it refers to the characteristics of a room, auditorium, theatre, building, etc. that determines the audibility or fidelity of sounds in it. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)
A disorder beginning in childhood. It is marked by the presence of markedly abnormal or impaired development in social interaction and communication and a markedly restricted repertoire of activity and interest. Manifestations of the disorder vary greatly depending on the developmental level and chronological age of the individual. (DSM-V)

A problem with auditory processing? (1/574)Recent studies have found associations between auditory processing deficits and language disorders such as dyslexia; but whether the former cause the latter, or simply co-occur with them, is still an open question. (+info)
A possible neurophysiological basis of the octave enlargement effect. (2/574)Although the physical octave is defined as a simple ratio of 2:1, listeners prefer slightly greater octave ratios. Ohgushi [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 73, 1694-1700 (1983)] suggested that a temporal model for octave matching would predict this octave enlargement effect because, in response to pure tones, auditory-nerve interspike intervals are slightly larger than the stimulus period. In an effort to test Ohgushi's hypothesis, auditory-nerve single-unit responses to pure-tone stimuli were collected from Dial-anesthetized cats. It was found that although interspike interval distributions show clear phase-locking to the stimulus, intervals systematically deviate from integer multiples of the stimulus period. Due to refractory effects, intervals smaller than 5 msec are slightly larger than the stimulus period and deviate most for small intervals. On the other hand, first-order intervals are smaller than the stimulus period for stimulus frequencies less than 500 Hz. It is shown that this deviation is the combined effect of phase-locking and multiple spikes within one stimulus period. A model for octave matching was implemented which compares frequency estimates of two tones based on their interspike interval distributions. The model quantitatively predicts the octave enlargement effect. These results are consistent with the idea that musical pitch is derived from auditory-nerve interspike interval distributions.

Auditory cortical responses to the interactive effects of interaural intensity disparities and frequency. (3/574)Under natural conditions, stimuli reaching the two ears contain multiple acoustic components. Rarely does a stimulus containing only one component (e.g. pure tone burst) exist outside the realm of the laboratory. For example, in sound localization the simultaneous presence of multiple cues (spectral content, level, phase, etc.) serves to increase the number of available cues and provide the listener with more information, thereby helping to reduce errors in locating the sound source. The present study was designed to explore the relationship between two acoustic parameters: stimulus frequency and interaural intensity disparities (IIDs). By varying both stimulus frequency and IIDs for each cell, we hoped to gain insight into how multiple cues are processed. To this end, we examined the responses of neurons in cat primary auditory cortex (AI) to determine if their sensitivity to IIDs changed as a function of stimulus frequency. IIDs ranging from +30 to -30 dB were presented at different frequencies (frequency was always the same in the two ears). We found that approximately half of the units examined exhibited responses to IIDs that varied as a function of stimulus frequency (i.e. displayed some form of IID x Freq dependency). The remaining units displayed IID responses that were not clearly related to stimulus frequency. (+info)
Temporal coding of periodicity pitch in the auditory system: an overview. (4/574)This paper outlines a taxonomy of neural pulse codes and reviews neurophysiological evidence for interspike interval-based representations for pitch and timbre in the auditory nerve and cochlear nucleus. Neural pulse codes can be divided into channel-based codes, temporal-pattern codes, and time-of-arrival codes. Timings of discharges in auditory nerve fibers reflect the time structure of acoustic waveforms, such that the interspike intervals that are produced precisely convey information concerning stimulus periodicities. Population-wide inter-spike interval distributions are constructed by summing together intervals from the observed responses of many single Type I auditory nerve fibers. Features in such distributions correspond closely with pitches that are heard by human listeners. The most common all-order interval present in the auditory nerve array almost invariably corresponds to the pitch frequency, whereas the relative fraction of pitch-related intervals amongst all others qualitatively corresponds to the strength of the pitch. Consequently, many diverse aspects of pitch perception are explained in terms of such temporal representations. Similar stimulus-driven temporal discharge patterns are observed in major neuronal populations of the cochlear nucleus. Population-interval distributions constitute an alternative time-domain strategy for representing sensory information that complements spatially organized sensory maps. Similar autocorrelation-like representations are possible in other sensory systems, in which neural discharges are time-locked to stimulus waveforms. (+info)
Neural responses to overlapping FM sounds in the inferior colliculus of echolocating bats. (5/574)The big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus, navigates and hunts prey with echolocation, a modality that uses the temporal and spectral differences between vocalizations and echoes from objects to build spatial images. Closely spaced surfaces ("glints") return overlapping echoes if two echoes return within the integration time of the cochlea ( approximately 300-400 micros). The overlap results in spectral interference that provides information about target structure or texture. Previous studies have shown that two acoustic events separated in time by less than approximately 500 micros evoke only a single response from neural elements in the auditory brain stem. How does the auditory system encode multiple echoes in time when only a single response is available? We presented paired FM stimuli with delay separations from 0 to 24 micros to big brown bats and recorded local field potentials (LFPs) and single-unit responses from the inferior colliculus (IC). These stimuli have one or two interference notches positioned in their spectrum as a function of two-glint separation. For the majority of single units, response counts decreased for two-glint separations when the resulting FM signal had a spectral notch positioned at the cell's best frequency (BF). The smallest two-glint separation that reliably evoked a decrease in spike count was 6 micros. In addition, first-spike latency increased for two-glint stimuli with notches positioned nearby BF. The N(4) potential of averaged LFPs showed a decrease in amplitude for two-glint separations that had a spectral notch near the BF of the recording site. Derived LFPs were computed by subtracting a common-mode signal from each LFP evoked by the two-glint FM stimuli. The derived LFP records show clear changes in both the amplitude and latency as a function of two-glint separation. These observations in relation with the single-unit data suggest that both response amplitude and latency can carry information about two-glint separation in the auditory system of E. fuscus. (+info)
Reorganization of the frequency map of the auditory cortex evoked by cortical electrical stimulation in the big brown bat. (6/574)In a search phase of echolocation, big brown bats, Eptesicus fuscus, emit biosonar pulses at a rate of 10/s and listen to echoes. When a short acoustic stimulus was repetitively delivered at this rate, the reorganization of the frequency map of the primary auditory cortex took place at and around the neurons tuned to the frequency of the acoustic stimulus. Such reorganization became larger when the acoustic stimulus was paired with electrical stimulation of the cortical neurons tuned to the frequency of the acoustic stimulus. This reorganization was mainly due to the decrease in the best frequencies of the neurons that had best frequencies slightly higher than those of the electrically stimulated cortical neurons or the frequency of the acoustic stimulus. Neurons with best frequencies slightly lower than those of the acoustically and/or electrically stimulated neurons slightly increased their best frequencies. These changes resulted in the over-representation of repetitively delivered acoustic stimulus. Because the over-representation resulted in under-representation of other frequencies, the changes increased the contrast of the neural representation of the acoustic stimulus. Best frequency shifts for over-representation were associated with sharpening of frequency-tuning curves of 25% of the neurons studied. Because of the increases in both the contrast of neural representation and the sharpness of tuning, the over-representation of the acoustic stimulus is accompanied with an improvement of analysis of the acoustic stimulus.

Interdependence of spatial and temporal coding in the auditory midbrain. (7/574)To date, most physiological studies that investigated binaural auditory processing have addressed the topic rather exclusively in the context of sound localization. However, there is strong psychophysical evidence that binaural processing serves more than only sound localization. This raises the question of how binaural processing of spatial cues interacts with cues important for feature detection. The temporal structure of a sound is one such feature important for sound recognition. As a first approach, we investigated the influence of binaural cues on temporal processing in the mammalian auditory system. Here, we present evidence that binaural cues, namely interaural intensity differences (IIDs), have profound effects on filter properties for stimulus periodicity of auditory midbrain neurons in the echolocating big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus. Our data indicate that these effects are partially due to changes in strength and timing of binaural inhibitory inputs. We measured filter characteristics for the periodicity (modulation frequency) of sinusoidally frequency modulated sounds (SFM) under different binaural conditions. As criteria, we used 50% filter cutoff frequencies of modulation transfer functions based on discharge rate as well as synchronicity of discharge to the sound envelope. The binaural conditions were contralateral stimulation only, equal stimulation at both ears (IID = 0 dB), and more intense at the ipsilateral ear (IID = -20, -30 dB). In 32% of neurons, the range of modulation frequencies the neurons responded to changed considerably comparing monaural and binaural (IID =0) stimulation. Moreover, in approximately 50% of neurons the range of modulation frequencies was narrower when the ipsilateral ear was favored (IID = -20) compared with equal stimulation at both ears (IID = 0). In approximately 10% of the neurons synchronization differed when comparing different binaural cues. Blockade of the GABAergic or glycinergic inputs to the cells recorded from revealed that inhibitory inputs were at least partially responsible for the observed changes in SFM filtering. In 25% of the neurons, drug application abolished those changes. Experiments using electronically introduced interaural time differences showed that the strength of ipsilaterally evoked inhibition increased with increasing modulation frequencies in one third of the cells tested. Thus glycinergic and GABAergic inhibition is at least one source responsible for the observed interdependence of temporal structure of a sound and spatial cues. (+info)
Frequency and intensity response properties of single neurons in the auditory cortex of the behaving macaque monkey. (8/574)Response properties of auditory cortical neurons measured in anesthetized preparations have provided important information on the physiological differences between neurons in different auditory cortical areas. Studies in the awake animal, however, have been much less common, and the physiological differences noted may reflect differences in the influence of anesthetics on neurons in different cortical areas. Because the behaving monkey is gaining popularity as an animal model in studies exploring auditory cortical function, it has become critical to physiologically define the response properties of auditory cortical neurons in this preparation. This study documents the response properties of single cortical neurons in the primary and surrounding auditory cortical fields in monkeys performing an auditory discrimination task. We found that neurons with the shortest latencies were located in the primary auditory cortex (AI). Neurons in the rostral field had the longest latencies and the narrowest intensity and frequency tuning, neurons in the caudomedial field had the broadest frequency tuning, and neurons in the lateral field had the most monotonic rate/level functions of the four cortical areas studied. These trends were revealed by comparing response properties across the population of studied neurons, but there was considerable variability between neurons for each response parameter other than characteristic frequency (CF) in each cortical area. Although the neuronal CFs showed a systematic spatial organization across AI, no such systematic organization was apparent for any other response property in AI or the adjacent cortical areas. The results of this study indicate that there are physiological differences between auditory cortical fields in the behaving monkey consistent with previous studies in the anesthetized animal and provide insights into the functional role of these cortical areas in processing acoustic information.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of perturbation magnitude and voice F0 level on the pitch-shift reflex. AU - Liu, Hanjun. AU - Larson, Chuck. PY - 2007/12/1. Y1 - 2007/12/1. N2 - The purpose of the present study was to investigate the responsiveness of the pitch-shift reflex to small magnitude stimuli and voice fundamental frequency (F0) level. English speakers received pitch-shifted voice feedback (±10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 cents, 200 ms duration) during vowel phonations at a high and a low F0 level. Mean pitch-shift response magnitude increased as a function of pitch-shift stimulus magnitude, but when expressed as a percent of stimulus magnitude, declined from 100% with ±10 cents to 37% with ±50 cents stimuli. Response magnitudes were larger and latencies were shorter with a high F0 level (16 cents;130 ms) compared to a low F0 level (13 cents;152 ms). Data from the present study demonstrate that vocal response magnitudes are equal to small perturbation magnitudes, and they are larger and faster with ...
Cortical and subcortical processing of pitch in infants and adults
Pitch is used for different purposes in different languages. Many studies have shown that speakers of a non-tone languages are not so good at categorising and discriminating pitch patterns taken from a tone language as native speakers of the tone language or speakers of another tone language. This is however a very surprising finding given that speakers of a non-tone language also use pitch extensively in daily communication.. In a joint project with Patrick Wongs lab at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, we address the question of how different types of experience with pitch (lexical vs. post-lexical) shape how infants and adults process pitch in the brain. In particular, we investigate infants and adults sensitivity to pitch patterns and ability to track pitch patterns in Dutch and Cantonese at both the cortical and sub-cortical level. The pitch patterns of interest are rises and falls that are common in both Dutch and Cantonese but differ in certain phonetic dimensions. At the cortical ...
Particle filtering based pitch sequence correction for monaural speech segregation - Kim - 2013 - International Journal of...
This article proposes a novel speech and sound segregation framework incorporating a technique for correcting a series of pitch periods based on particle filtering. The conventional pitch track correction method finds the peak locations of the autocorrelation functions to estimate the pitch period, and only the longest reliable pitch streak is used to correct unreliable pitch tracks. Especially in noisy environments, it is hard to find long and reliable pitch streaks, resulting in the degradation of the speech segregation performance. The proposed algorithm based on particle filtering considers all the reliable pitch streaks rather than the longest one and smoothly connects the scattered pitch streaks. To apply the particle filtering algorithm to pitch track correction, the importance weight computation to account for the degree of matchness of the found pitch to the individual spectro-temporal components is also proposed. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated by the results of ...

Super confused about pitch automation | Ableton
Yo, Im fairly new to Ableton, with only about 50 hours of experience, so forgive me if this has a blatantly obvious solution. I have searched multiple times trying to figure out what options Ableton has for pitch automation and I cant find anything satisfactory. Most posts just refer to the Pitch Bend in the midi clip envelopes window, which, as far as I tell, is restricted to the pitch range of your midi controller (I have opened my controllers editor and theres no value box whatsoever to change the pitch bend range; another problem entirely), or if youre trying to pitch bend an audio clip, people refer to the Transposition Modulation in the envelopes window, which wont create a smooth bend for obvious reasons. I should say that I came from FL Studio before using Ableton and I absolutely love the way pitch is automated in midi clips there, because its just plain easy to make gorgeous slides. Is there anything similar to that? Possibly a plug-in somewhere?. To me, this is something that ...

Re: pitch neurons
Israel Nelken asked: , why is there such a pressure , to assume low-level representation (i.e. subcortical) of pitch? Dear Eli and List, the reason why physiological research focused on the exploration of subcortical mechanisms when looking for the pitch detector simply was that psychoacoustic data demanded a spectrotemporal mechanism. This ruled out the auditory cortex, because phase-coupling to pitch-relevant harmonics does not occur there. The highest level where it occurs is the auditory midbrain. During the past 15 years all necessary elements for pitch extraction have been found in the auditory midbrain (inferior colliculus, in the upper brainstem). Arrays of best-pitch neurons filter out the pitch frequency of complex sound signals, in the same way as arrays of best-frequency hair cells filter out spectral frequencies in the cochlea. Whereas the tuning properties of hair cells in the cochlea are mechanical and electrical, the tuning properties of pitch neurons are purely electrical. These ...
MagC, magnetic collection of ultrathin sections for volumetric correlative light and electron microscopy | eLife
Individuals with congenital amusia have a lifelong history of unreliable pitch processing. Accordingly, they downweight pitch cues during speech perception and instead rely on other dimensions such as duration. We investigated the neural basis for this strategy. During fMRI, individuals with amusia (N=15) and controls (N=15) read sentences where a comma indicated a grammatical phrase boundary. They then heard two sentences spoken that differed only in pitch and/or duration cues, and selected the best match for the written sentence. Prominent reductions in functional connectivity were detected in the amusia group, between left prefrontal language-related regions and right hemisphere pitch-related regions, which reflected the between-group differences in cue weights in the same groups of listeners. Connectivity differences between these regions were not present during a control task. Our results indicate that the reliability of perceptual dimensions is linked with functional connectivity between ...

Pest Notes: Witches Brooms, Pitch Mass Borers and Ants - Plant & Pest Advisory
The pitch mass borer, as well as all clearwing moths, requires a wound to successfully penetrate and bore into a tree. Therefore, pitch mass borer attacks will often increase after pruning wounds are made (proper pruning cuts included). Several years ago, some studies performed by Cornell University researchers unintentionally showed that pitch mass borer attacks could be reduced on recently pruned pines or spruces by applying a wound dressing. They applied a newer generation of wound dressing called Lac Balsum that was introduced from Europe a couple of decades ago. It has a flat gray color when applied over the wounds of fresh pruning cuts. The conifers receiving the wound dressing showed no evidence of pitch mass borer infestations after 2 years. Apparently the Lac Balsum acted as a protective barrier and/or did not attract egg deposition. On the other hand, 30% of the conifers not receiving the wound dressing showed evidence of pitch mass borer activity one or two years later (Note: proper ...

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). However, the behavioral significance of corticothalamic modulation is unknown. The aim of this study was to elucidate the role of this descending pathway in the perception of complex sounds. We tested the ability of adult female ferrets to detect the presence of a mistuned harmonic in a complex tone using a positive conditioned go/no-go behavioral paradigm, before and after the input from layer VI in A1 to MGBv was bilaterally and selectively eliminated using chromophore-targeted laser photolysis. MGBv neurons were identified by their short latencies and sharp tuning curves. They responded robustly to harmonic complex tones, and exhibited an increase in firing rate and temporal pattern changes when one frequency component in the complex tone was mistuned. Injections of fluorescent microbeads conjugated with a light-sensitive ...

mistuned harmonics and duplex perception
A recent note from Valter Ciocca says: In support of Als point that pitch can be affected by grouping, Chris Darwin and I found that the pitch of a complex could be changed by mistuning one of its low-numbered components only when the mistuned component was grouped with the remaining components of the complex. This is a very nice result. Unfortunately, some other studies do not agree with the conclusion. In 1984 I did mistuned harmonic experiments with brief tones, using a 200 Hz complex tone with 7 harmonics, except that the fourth harmonic was mistuned. Experiment 1 found the amount of mistuning required to hear out the mistuned harmonic as a separate entity. For a tone duration of 40 ms this threshold mistuning was 22 Hz (2.75 % of the correct harmonic frequency of 800 Hz). For mistuning less than 22 Hz the complex was a single entity and the mistuned harmonic did not pop out. Experiment 2 measured the shift in the virtual pitch caused by mistuning of the fourth harmonic. (The virtual ...

Instinctively, our mind has been trained to understand numbers, and to know whether numbers are getting bigger or smaller, just by thinking of them.. My friend, the vocal instructor, got his student to sing these numbers out in various pitches of the major scale.. Meaning, he related the number 1′ with the first note in the major scale Doh. And the second number 2′ with the second note Re. And so on.. This meant that the student was now able to understand how low pitches and high pitches sound, just by relating them to the numbers getting bigger or smaller!. It sounds simple, but it really is a neat trick, because now the student processes these notes and pitches with the numbers that he understands well, and he has a guideline to judge these pitches by.. Also, with more practice over time, the brain ...

Pettitte and manager Joe Girardi held out hope that he wont have to miss his next start.. Pettitte appeared to stiffen and wince after throwing his final pitch, a swinging strikeout of Kyle Seager for the second out of the fifth inning. Girardi dashed to the mound and held a fairly lengthy conversation with Pettitte, who shielded his mouth with his glove. Pettitte jogged off the field and was relieved by Shawn Kelley.. Obviously, Im realistic, Pettitte said. I know how these guys are. I asked them if I could stay out there and try to get through it out there. Im hoping its a spasm and it settles down.. Girardi -- no stranger to injury updates in a season that has already been filled by them -- remained hopeful as well.. I dont think Andys [injury] is too bad, Girardi said. His ...

Definition of vocal pitch accuracy in a melodic context.. Abstract : If we easily categorize sung performances as in tune or out of tune, it is not so evident to explicitly describe on which criteria our evaluation is based. This presentation reports recent work on pitch accuracy perception in a melodic context. The results allow to refine the notion of pitch accuracyand therefore to design objective tools for the evaluation of singer quality. This lecture will be in English.. ...
Madison Bumgarner News
Bumgarner suffered a broken finger in spring training, resulting in a second consecutive abbreviated season after a long track record of durability. His 19.8% strikeout rate last season was his lowest since 2010 while his 7.8% walk rate was a career worst. The combination of those two, his K-BB%, was his worst this decade. More troubling is the fact that Bumgarners fastball, which was once a quality pitch for him, abandoned him last year. By run values, his fastball was nearly as bad for him last year as it was good for him in 2015. The velocity on the pitch has been consistent the past three seasons, but a 91-mph fastball is league average now. He still managed to finish with a solid ERA thanks to his ability to pitch out of trouble with his secondary pitches. The risk is more health than skill, because Bumgarner has shown he can still pitch reasonably well without the fastball. While no longer an ace, Bumgarner is still a good piece to have on your roster ...
The graphs might be a little bit overkill, but its cool all the different ways you can visualize the this simple data. The number of pitches is distributed normally with a skew left. This skew occurs because there are instances when the pitcher has a bad day and gets pulled really early. To account for this, I excluded any outing that didnt have more than 50 pitches. We will consider these as rare events, which we shouldnt try to use in our prediction. The idea of the game is to hit the exact pitch count, and this would preclude a rare event from being factored in. I also used the median number of pitches instead of the average number of pitches for the same reason. We want to consistently pick numbers which are the most likely to get hit, not to try to predict every game.. The idea of using the median over the mean is important when there is a skew to the normal distribution of the data. This is important for something like income. There is a huge skew for incomes across the entire US ...
INTERSPEECH 2014 Abstract: Reichel / Mády
We examined how well prosodic boundary strength can be captured by two declination stylization methods as well as by four different representations of pitch register. In the stylization proposed by Liebermann et al. (1985) base- and topline are fitted to peaks and valleys of the pitch contour, whereas in Reichel & Mády (2013) these lines are fitted to medians below and above certain pitch percentiles. From each of the stylizations four feature pools were induced representing different aspects of register discontinuity at word boundaries: discontinuities related to the base-, mid-, and topline, as well as to the range between base- and topline. Concerning stylization the median-based fitting approach turned out to be more robust with respect to declination line crossing errors and yielded base-, topline and range-related discontinuity characteristics with higher correlations to perceived boundary strength. Concerning register representation, for the peak/valley fitting approach the base- and ...

The art of pitching in medicine
Poor Hilda looked like Christmas was cancelled. I knew then that her devoted husband would make sure she didnt get to enjoy any of her favorite meals and she looked like she just wanted this meeting to end.. A pitch is successful if your ideas get past the Amygdala and through to the neocortex where the information may then be classified as new and interesting enough to warrant a second thought. In Hildas case the information would simply elicit a flight or fight reaction. When she got home she would argue bitterly that bread and potatoes were not the source of her trouble and that may be shed prefer to see another doctor. Meanwhile her diabetes would remain problematic. If we dont pitch effectively we dont get the best outcomes. For people with coughs and colds we pitch for time, knowing that the symptoms (though horrible) will get completely better. For those like Hilda with a long term illness we pitch for them to make different choices and for those with a life limiting illness we ...

Gouffre des HÃ©rÃ©tiques rigging lesson | ULSA
This trip was planned with an ambitious combination of goals. Rig the Gouffre des Hrtiques entrance in preparation for trips later in the holiday, teach Caroline how to rig, rig the Trou du Vent in preparation for photographing the big chamber with caver descending though the roof on the final pitch, and the photography itself. The first entrance was quickly located and the Trou du Vent team dispatched underground to find their way with the survey and description.. The rest of us located the entrance to des Hrtiques without trouble, and began teaching Caroline how to rig. This went very smoothly, the cave lending itself well to rigging lessons as the rigger can be instructed at all the pitch heads and rebelay points using convenient ledges provided. The combination of rigging lesson and route finding down the many apparent options for pitches meant that it took about 4 hours to reach the final pitch. Caroline did a superb job of rigging all the way down. The rope length quoted for the final ...
