Coding of sound envelopes by inhibitory rebound in neurons of the superior olivary complex in the unanesthetized rabbit. (1/910)

Most natural sounds (e.g., speech) are complex and have amplitude envelopes that fluctuate rapidly. A number of studies have examined the neural coding of envelopes, but little attention has been paid to the superior olivary complex (SOC), a constellation of nuclei that receive information from the cochlear nucleus. We studied two classes of predominantly monaural neurons: those that displayed a sustained response to tone bursts and those that gave only a response to the tone offset. Our results demonstrate that the off neurons in the SOC can encode the pattern of amplitude-modulated sounds with high synchrony that is superior to sustained neurons. The upper cutoff frequency and highest modulation frequency at which significant synchrony was present were, on average, slightly higher for off neurons compared with sustained neurons. Finally, most sustained and off neurons encoded the level of pure tones over a wider range of intensities than those reported for auditory nerve fibers and cochlear nucleus neurons. A traditional view of inhibition is that it attenuates or terminates neural activity. Although this holds true for off neurons, the robust discharge when inhibition is released adds a new dimension. For simple sounds (i.e., pure tones), the off response can code a wide range of sound levels. For complex sounds, the off response becomes entrained to each modulation, resulting in a precise temporal coding of the envelope.  (+info)

Communication signals and sound production mechanisms of mormyrid electric fish. (2/910)

The African weakly electric fishes Pollimyrus isidori and Pollimyrus adspersus (Mormyridae) produce elaborate acoustic displays during social communication in addition to their electric organ discharges (EODs). In this paper, we provide new data on the EODs of these sound-producing mormyrids and on the mechanisms they use to generate species-typical sounds. Although it is known that the EODs are usually species-specific and sexually dimorphic, the EODs of closely related sound-producing mormyrids have not previously been compared. The data presented demonstrate that there is a clear sexual dimorphism in the EOD waveform of P. isidori. Females have a multi-phasic EOD that is more complex than the male's biphasic EOD. In this respect, P. isidori is similar to its more thoroughly studied congener P. adspersus, which has a sexually dimorphic EOD. The new data also reveal that the EODs of these two species are distinct, thus showing for the first time that species-specificity in EODs is characteristic of these fishes, which also generate species-specific courtship sounds. The sound-generating mechanism is based on a drumming muscle coupled to the swimbladder. Transverse sections through decalcified male and female P. adspersus revealed a muscle that envelops the caudal pole of the swimbladder and that is composed of dorso-ventrally oriented fibers. The muscle is five times larger in males (14.5+/-4.4 microl, mean +/- s.d.) than in females (3.2+/-1.8 microl). The fibers are also of significantly larger diameter in males than in females. Males generate courtship sounds and females do not. The function of the swimbladder muscle was tested using behavioral experiments. Male P. adspersus normally produce acoustic courtship displays when presented with female-like electrical stimuli. However, local anesthesia of the swimbladder muscle muted males. In control trials, males continued to produce sounds after injection of either lidocaine in the trunk muscles or saline in the swimbladder muscles.  (+info)

Sensitivity to simulated directional sound motion in the rat primary auditory cortex. (3/910)

Sensitivity to simulated directional sound motion in the rat primary auditory cortex. This paper examines neuron responses in rat primary auditory cortex (AI) during sound stimulation of the two ears designed to simulate sound motion in the horizontal plane. The simulated sound motion was synthesized from mathematical equations that generated dynamic changes in interaural phase, intensity, and Doppler shifts at the two ears. The simulated sounds were based on moving sources in the right frontal horizontal quadrant. Stimuli consisted of three circumferential segments between 0 and 30 degrees, 30 and 60 degrees, and 60 and 90 degrees and four radial segments at 0, 30, 60, and 90 degrees. The constant velocity portion of each segment was 0.84 m long. The circumferential segments and center of the radial segments were calculated to simulate a distance of 2 m from the head. Each segment had two trajectories that simulated motion in both directions, and each trajectory was presented at two velocities. Young adult rats were anesthetized, the left primary auditory cortex was exposed, and microelectrode recordings were obtained from sound responsive cells in AI. All testing took place at a tonal frequency that most closely approximated the best frequency of the unit at a level 20 dB above the tuning curve threshold. The results were presented on polar plots that emphasized the two directions of simulated motion for each segment rather than the location of sound in space. The trajectory exhibiting a "maximum motion response" could be identified from these plots. "Neuron discharge profiles" within these trajectories were used to demonstrate neuron activity for the two motion directions. Cells were identified that clearly responded to simulated uni- or multidirectional sound motion (39%), that were sensitive to sound location only (19%), or that were sound driven but insensitive to our location or sound motion stimuli (42%). The results demonstrated the capacity of neurons in rat auditory cortex to selectively process dynamic stimulus conditions representing simulated motion on the horizontal plane. Our data further show that some cells were responsive to location along the horizontal plane but not sensitive to motion. Cells sensitive to motion, however, also responded best to the moving sound at a particular location within the trajectory. It would seem that the mechanisms underlying sensitivity to sound location as well as direction of motion converge on the same cell.  (+info)

Single-unit responses in the inferior colliculus of decerebrate cats. I. Classification based on frequency response maps. (4/910)

This study proposes a classification system for neurons in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) that is based on excitation and inhibition patterns of single-unit responses in decerebrate cats. The decerebrate preparation allowed extensive characterization of physiological response types without the confounding effects of anesthesia. The tone-driven discharge rates of individual units were measured across a range of frequencies and levels to map excitatory and inhibitory response areas for contralateral monaural stimulation. The resulting frequency response maps can be grouped into the following three populations: type V maps exhibit a wide V-shaped excitatory area and no inhibition; type I maps show a more restricted I-shaped region of excitation that is flanked by inhibition at lower and higher frequencies; and type O maps display an O-shaped island of excitation at low stimulus levels that is bounded by inhibition at higher levels. Units that produce a type V map typically have a low best frequency (BF: the most sensitive frequency), a low rate of spontaneous activity, and monotonic rate-level functions for both BF tones and broadband noise. Type I and type O units have BFs that span the cat's range of audible frequencies and high rates of spontaneous activity. Like type V units, type I units are excited by BF tones and noise at all levels, but their rate-level functions may become nonmonotonic at high levels. Type O units are inhibited by BF tones and noise at high levels. The existence of distinct response types is consistent with a conceptual model in which the unit types receive dominant inputs from different sources and shows that these functionally segregated pathways are specialized to play complementary roles in the processing of auditory information.  (+info)

Conductive hearing loss produces a reversible binaural hearing impairment. (5/910)

Conductive hearing loss, produced by otitis media with effusion, is widespread in young children. However, little is known about its short- or long-term effects on hearing or the brain. To study the consequences of a conductive loss for the perception and processing of sounds, we plugged the left ear canal of ferrets for 7-15 months during either infancy or adulthood. Before or during plugging, the ferrets were trained to perform a binaural task requiring the detection of a 500 Hz tone, positioned 90 degrees to the right, that was masked by two sources of broad-band noise. In one condition ("control"), both noise sources were 90 degrees right and, in the second condition ("bilateral"), one noise source was moved to 90 degrees left. Normal ferrets showed binaural unmasking: tone detection thresholds were lower (mean 10.1 dB) for the bilateral condition than for the control condition. Both groups of ear-plugged ferrets had reduced unmasking; the mean residual unmasking was 2.3 dB for the infant and 0.7 dB for the adult ear-plugged animals. After unplugging, unmasking increased in both groups (infant, 7.1 dB; adult, 6.9 dB) but not to normal levels. Repeated testing during the 22 months after unplugging revealed a gradual return to normal levels of unmasking. These results show that a unilateral conductive hearing loss, in either infancy or adulthood, impairs binaural hearing both during and after the hearing loss. They show scant evidence for adaptation to the plug and demonstrate a recovery from the impairment that occurs over a period of several months after restoration of normal peripheral function.  (+info)

Mosquito hearing: sound-induced antennal vibrations in male and female Aedes aegypti. (6/910)

Male mosquitoes are attracted by the flight sounds of conspecific females. In males only, the antennal flagellum bears a large number of long hairs and is therefore said to be plumose. As early as 1855, it was proposed that this remarkable antennal anatomy served as a sound-receiving structure. In the present study, the sound-induced vibrations of the antennal flagellum in male and female Aedes aegypti were compared, and the functional significance of the flagellar hairs for audition was examined. In both males and females, the antennae are resonantly tuned mechanical systems that move as simple forced damped harmonic oscillators when acoustically stimulated. The best frequency of the female antenna is around 230 Hz; that of the male is around 380 Hz, which corresponds approximately to the fundamental frequency of female flight sounds. The antennal hairs of males are resonantly tuned to frequencies between approximately 2600 and 3100 Hz and are therefore stiffly coupled to, and move together with, the flagellar shaft when stimulated at biologically relevant frequencies around 380 Hz. Because of this stiff coupling, forces acting on the hairs can be transmitted to the shaft and thus to the auditory sensory organ at the base of the flagellum, a process that is proposed to improve acoustic sensitivity. Indeed, the mechanical sensitivity of the male antenna not only exceeds the sensitivity of the female antenna but also those of all other arthropod movement receivers studied so far.  (+info)

Bilateral ablation of auditory cortex in Mongolian gerbil affects discrimination of frequency modulated tones but not of pure tones. (7/910)

This study examines the role of auditory cortex in the Mongolian gerbil in differential conditioning to pure tones and to linearly frequency-modulated (FM) tones by analyzing the effects of bilateral auditory cortex ablation. Learning behavior and performance were studied in a GO/NO-GO task aiming at avoidance of a mild foot shock by crossing a hurdle in a two-way shuttle box. Hurdle crossing as the conditioned response to the reinforced stimulus (CR+), as false alarm in response to the unreinforced stimulus (CR-), intertrial activity, and reaction times were monitored. The analysis revealed no effects of lesion on pure tone discrimination but impairment of FM tone discrimination. In the latter case lesion effects were dependent on timing of lesion relative to FM tone discrimination training. Lesions before training in naive animals led to a reduced CR+ rate and had no effect on CR- rate. Lesions in pretrained animals led to an increased CR- rate without effects on the CR+ rate. The results suggest that auditory cortex plays a more critical role in discrimination of FM tones than in discrimination of pure tones. The different lesion effects on FM tone discrimination before and after training are compatible with both the hypothesis of a purely sensory deficit in FM tone processing and the hypothesis of a differential involvement of auditory cortex in acquisition and retention, respectively.  (+info)

Contractile properties of muscles used in sound production and locomotion in two species of gray tree frog. (8/910)

The sound-producing muscles of frogs and toads are interesting because they have been selected to produce high-power outputs at high frequencies. The two North American species of gray tree frog, Hyla chrysoscelis and Hyla versicolor, are a diploid-tetraploid species pair. They are morphologically identical, but differ in the structure of their advertisement calls. H. chrysoscelis produces very loud pulsed calls by contracting its calling muscles at approximately 40 Hz at 20 degrees C, whereas, H. versicolor operates the homologous muscles at approximately 20 Hz at this temperature. This study examined the matching of the intrinsic contractile properties of the calling muscles to their frequency of use. I measured the isotonic and isometric contractile properties of two calling muscles, the laryngeal dilator, which presumably has a role in modulating call structure, and the external oblique, which is one of the muscles that provides the mechanical power for calling. I also examined the properties of the sartorius as a representative locomotor muscle. The calling muscles differ greatly in twitch kinetics between the two species. The calling muscles of H. chrysoscelis reach peak tension in a twitch after approximately 15 ms, compared with 25 ms for the same muscles in H. versicolor. The muscles also differ significantly in isotonic properties in the direction predicted from their calling frequencies. However, the maximum shortening velocities of the calling muscles of H. versicolor are only slightly lower than those of the comparable muscles of H. chrysoscelis. The calling muscles have similar maximum shortening velocities to the sartorius, but have much flatter force-velocity curves, which may be an adaptation to their role in cyclical power output. I conclude that twitch properties have been modified more by selection than have intrinsic shortening velocities. This difference corresponds to the differing roles of shortening velocity and twitch kinetics in determining power output at differing frequencies.  (+info)

Langasite surface acoustic wave devices can be used to implement harsh-environment wireless sensing of gas concentration and temperature. This paper reviews prior work on the development of langasite surface acoustic wave devices, followed by a report of recent progress toward the implementation of oxygen gas sensors. Resistive metal oxide films can be used as the oxygen sensing film, although development of an adherent barrier layer will be necessary with the sensing layers studied here to prevent interaction with the langasite substrate. Experimental results are presented for the performance of a langasite surface acoustic wave oxygen sensor with tin oxide sensing layer, and these experimental results are correlated with direct measurements of the sensing layer resistivity.
A surface acoustic wave device, including: a piezoelectric substrate; an interdigitated transducer electrode disposed on the substrate; an oxide film disposed on surface of the interdigitated transducer electrode; and a hydrophobic film disposed on a surface of the oxide film.
An acoustic wave sensor utilizes one or more acoustic waves trapped in an acoustic wave cavity to detect the presence of one or more substances on a surface of the acoustic wave cavity. To detect the presence of ice, a trapped torsional acoustic wave is used. To detect water, an acoustic wave with flexural or compressional components is used. The sensor includes a number of transducers adjacent the acoustic wave cavity where a controller drives different sets of the transducers to generate different acoustic waves.

Acoustic tweezers: manipulating particles, cells, and organisms using standing surface acoustic waves (SSAW) The ability to manipulate cells and microparticles in a biocompatible and dexterous manner is critical for numerous biological studies and applications such as cell-cell communication, biosensing, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. Here we summarize our recent progress on an acoustic tweezers technique that utilizes standing surface acoustic wave (SSAW) to manipulate particles, cells, and organisms. This technique is capable of manipulating cells and microparticles regardless of shape, size, charge or polarity. Its power intensity, approximately 107 times lower than that of optical tweezers, compares favorably with those of other active patterning methods. Cell viability, proliferation, and apoptosis studies have revealed the technique to be biocompatible. The aforementioned advantages, along with this techniques simple design and ability to be miniaturized, render the ...
The term auditory masking implies that a sound (masker sound) influences the perception of another sound (target sound), so that the focus shifts from the target to the masker sound1. There are two general types of auditory masking; energetic and informational. In energetic masking, the target sound is rendered inaudible or less loud. In informational masking, both sounds are audible but the main focus lays on the masker sound. Masking is a complex phenomenon that depends on several cues for successful implementation, including physical characteristics of sound sources and their relative location in space2. Some scientists suggest that it is not fruitful to use this strategy if the sound pressure level exceeds 65-70 dBA3. If the intention is to achieve tranquil qualities, significantly lower levels than this is required in most cases4,5. A possible exception is when tranquillity is associated with social seclusion, in which case it may be desirable to have higher sound pressure levels in order ...
Sensorineural hearing loss (sometimes called nerve deafness) occurs when the cilia (hair cells) of the inner ear (the cochlea) do not function properly. In an undamaged ear, the pressure from sound waves goes into your pinna (the outer ear, the part you can see), makes the eardrum move back and forth, is passed along the small bones of the middle ear (the smallest bones in your body!), and then transfers to the middle ear, where those sound waves cause actual waves in the fluid-filled cochlea. The waves of fluid cause the hair cells to move. This sets off a beautiful chemical chain reaction, which ultimately causes stimulation of the auditory nerve (cranial nerve VIII), which sends the sensation of sound to the brain. The hair cells in the cochlea are tonotopically arranged, meaning that each region corresponds to different tones, going from high frequency sounds at the basal end to low frequency sounds at the apex of the cochlea, which looks like a snail shell. Think of a piano keyboard ...
The thesis that sounds are sound waves is also often motivated by the argument from vacuums. Surely, it is argued, sounds cannot exist in a vacuum. As Hylas says in Berkeleys Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous, a bell struck in the exhausted receiver of an air-pump, sends forth no sound. The air therefore must be thought the subject of sound (1713: 171-2). But is the claim that there are no sounds in vacuums really obvious? On pain of question begging, it cannot be made to follow from any particular metaphysics of sounds. In order to assess it on its own merits, consider once more the analogy between, on the one hand, sounds and air, and, on the other hand, emission events at light sources and light. Air is the medium of auditory perception, and light is the medium of visual perception. The reasoning now is that just as things can sensibly be taken to have colors in the dark, they can sensibly be taken to produce sounds in a vacuum.. In the above arguments an important role is played ...

Have you experimented reversing sounds? Find or record a few dozen sounds with strong decays (metal gate slams, reverbant door slams, distant gun shots, explosions, pressure releases etc) - reverse them and try those for the approach/attack of the doppler.... For the decay of the doppler try lower frequency sounds.. Experiment by recording backwards performances for both the attack & decay (ie have the shape of the sound you want in mind, but perform it knowing you will be reversing it) eg try dragging a wood saw across carpet in various shapes/performances, or scraping a machete across another metal object with the dynamic shape of the reverse of what you want..... Metal sounds may work well for the dagger, as the right sound will inferr sharpness. Obviously a woosh stops on impact, so a strong doppler up to the point of impact with an immediate/hard cut can accentuate the impact - but I think your question is for an object in flight? Try slowing the video to half speed, so you have more time ...
Intensity - The amount of energy transported by a wave across a unit area per unit of time. The intensity of a sound wave determines the loudness of the sound. The unit of intensity is (W/m2) The lowest intensity the human ear can detect is 10-12 W/m2 The highest intensity the human ear can detect is 1 W/m2 Therefore, the sound range of intensity if 10-12 W/m2 to 1 W/m2 If you increase the intensity of a sound wave by about 10 times, the sound will sound about twice as loud as the original. Sound intensity levels are specified on a logarithmic scale. Unit = bel, named after Alexander Graham Bell. The unit decibel (dB) is more commonly used. (1 dB = 1/10 bel) The sound level is defined in terms of its intensity. Sound level = 10dB * log(I/Io) Io = Standard reference intensity, usually the minimum intesnity audible to a good human ear = 1.0 x 10-12 W/m2 ...
The speed of sound is the distance travelled per unit time by a sound wave as it propagates through an elastic medium. In dry air at 0 °C (32 °F), the speed of sound is 331.2 metres per second (1,087 ft/s; 1,192 km/h; 741 mph; 644 kn). At 20 °C (68 °F), the speed of sound is 343 metres per second (1,125 ft/s; 1,235 km/h; 767 mph; 667 kn), or a kilometre in 2.91 s or a mile in 4.69 s. The speed of sound in an ideal gas depends only on its temperature and composition. The speed has a weak dependence on frequency and pressure in ordinary air, deviating slightly from ideal behavior. In common everyday speech, speed of sound refers to the speed of sound waves in air. However, the speed of sound varies from substance to substance: sound travels most slowly in gases; it travels faster in liquids; and faster still in solids. For example, (as noted above), sound travels at 343 m/s in air; it travels at 1,484 m/s in water (4.3 times as fast as in air); and at 5,120 m/s in iron (about 15 times as fast ...
But in fact, sound waves really arent waves at all. Sound waves are actually organized vibrations that pass from molecule to molecule through most any medium. Air, steel, concrete, wood, water, and metal are all made of molecular structure. As a sound vibration is produced, the fluctuations are passed through any of these mediums transferring energy from one particle of the medium to its neighboring particles, much like doing a wave at a sporting event.. A good example of this energy transfer can be tested on a billiards table. A tightly racked set of billiards balls will mirror sound wave activity when the cue ball strikes the front ball in the rack. The energy will transfer from ball to ball via structure borne vibration. In a perfect rack, the center 8 ball should not move as the perimeter balls scatter across the table. Sound waves are energy transfers through molecules in the same manner as billiards balls collect and transfer stored energy.. ...
Its a small detail, but I find that its much more important than it initially seemed to be. I realize that I have quickly become quite dependent on the wushhh! noise that Mail makes whenever an email has been successfully sent out. I have always had customized sounds for incoming mail in Mail: a short, non-intrusive sound for all incoming mail, and more distinctive and louder sounds for mail coming from specific group of people (or specific accounts). In order to get Mail to play these various special-purpose sounds, all I had to do was to create rules (filter rules) in the programs Preferences dialog, and choose Play sound as one of the actions to execute whenever a message matches the criteria. The main New mail sound could simply be defined in the General pane in the Preferences dialog. Now Panthers Mail comes with its own built-in sound effects in addition to the regular New mail sound. These sounds can be enabled by checking the box Play sounds for other mail actions in the ...
The U.S. Department of Energys National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has developed a method for achieving tunable gas sensitivity of surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices. The innovation implements a class of materials with tunable absolute film conductivities called conducting metal oxides (CMOs), which enables SAW devices to be calibrated for gas sensitivity in diverse harsh-environment conditions.
The ability of models developed for describing partitioning of organic vapors into polymeric materials in gas liquid chromatography (GLC) to model the responses of polymer coated surface acoustic wave (SAW) vapor sensors was evaluated. SAW vapor sensors operating at 158 megahertz were coated with OV-275, OV-25, poly(phenyl)ether, or poly(isobutylene) (PIB). Arrays of these sensors were exposed to

Alexander tested variants of existing hearing aid technology, which use algorithms to move information from higher pitches into a lower pitch range, but found little success.. Those who need this technology the most are people like Mel. Unfortunately, because their pitch range is so limited, everything is placed into a very narrow area, which makes different speech sounds too similar to one another. There is less to separate them, he said. Listeners have to relearn how to perceive a lot of information in the new pitch range, assuming the sounds can be made different from one another in the first place.. Rather than design an algorithm and hope that listeners perception would accommodate to it, Alexander discovered what listeners needed to enhance perception in the new pitch range. He then designed an algorithm to accommodate these perceptual needs.. Unlike other algorithms that simply shift high-frequency sounds to a lower pitch range, this algorithm mirrors and flips them. By moving the ...

Dr. Parrack finds that rats and guinea pigs can be killed with high-frequency sound waves, but that man is safe against them because he has no fur. With the fur-bearing animals the sound energy is turned into heat. They die from high-frequency noise because they get so hot that the body proteins coagulate. When the hair is shaved off, there is no such coagulation effect. Man, with his much more efficient skin ventilating system, is safe at energy levels 120 times greater that rats are. ...

Acoustic tweezers work by setting up a standing surface acoustic wave. If two sound sources are placed opposite each other and each emits the same wavelength of sound, there will be a location where the opposing sounds cancel each other. This location can be considered a trough. Because sound waves have pressure, they can push very small objects, so a cell or nanoparticle will move with the sound wave until it reaches the trough where there is no longer movement. The particle or cell will stop and fall into the trough ...
Have you ever wanted to sit down and watch a feature length film about the merits of sound design in cinema?. Really? Youve actually had that exact thought? Well youre in luck, because the new film Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound aims to give the unsung sound designers of this world their shot at the spotlight. Its interesting and all, but it sounds like a DVD Extra stretched to feature length, if Im being honest.. A number of big time filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, Ang Lee, George Lucas, Ryan Coogler, and David Lynch all contribute their thoughts on the impact of sound on film. Theyre really trying to make it sound more exciting than it is, but what this movie is really designed to do is to give people who regularly watch The Oscars a better understanding of those Sound categories. Will they explain the difference between Sound Design and Sound Editing? Who knows? Well have to watch a two hour movie to find out!. USC Professor Midge Costin directs the film, which makes sense ...
If you were to rank them based on speed of sound then 1)Steel 2)Air 3)Water Frequency is the rate at which a vibration occurs, usually measured in seconds. At 0°C, the speed of sound is 331 m/s, whereas at 20.0 °C, it is 343 m/s, less than a 4% increase. Molecules at higher temperatures have more energy, thus they can vibrate faster. Speed of sound in different mediums The speed of sound is determined by the medium it is traveling through. The speed of sound depends on the temperature, stiffness, and density of the medium the sound travels through. For example, the speed of sound in air at 0 0 C is 331 m s -1 and at 22 0 C it is 344 m s -1. When the speed of any object surpasses the speed of sound waves, the speed of respective object is known as supersonic speed. Figure 17.3. Elastic properties are the properties of a material that allow it to maintain its shape when you apply force to it. When the speed of any object exceed the speed of sound it is said to be travelling at supersonic speed. ...
Sound can be measured as a change in pressure when sound waves reach the ear or a measuring device. Sound exposure is usually measured in decibels of sound pressure level (dB SPL), which is a measure of the sound pressure level relative to the lowest hearing threshold of the young, healthy ear set as 0 dB. The scale is logarithmic and a ten-fold increase in the sound pressure level measured corresponds to an increase by 20 dB SPL.

3. Compromise - Chris Thompson - Alarm Sounds. Distinctive as Pattersons sounds are, succesive IEC committees have not endorsed them. Mostly this was, I think, because simpler devices would have found it difficult, technically, to generate such complex sounds. Hence the simpler, more easily generated pulse tones of 9703.2 and 60601-1-8.. None the less, the underlying psychoacoustic principles advocated by Patterson are, I think, entirely valid, as was the concept of providing unique sounds for the main categories of medical alarms. My greatest reservation with the existing 60601-1-8 melodies is that the high priority melodies are too complex. Although the high priority sounds are based on the medium priority melodies, two additional beeps after the base melody confuse the sound greatly, so that each high priority alarm is quite different from its medium priority version. This means that there are almost 13 different sounds to learn, and they can be too easily confused. The general rule of ...
There are two Sound Level channels: A-weighted and C-weighted. The A‑weighted channel applies a filter to the sound level reading that mimics the human ears response to loudness and frequency. In most classroom situations, youll want to measure A-weighted sound levels. For more information on the difference between A- and C-weighted sound levels, see www.vernier.com/til/3500. The microphone is located inside the hole in the top of the case. Because the microphone is located inside the sensor, it is helpful to point the microphone hole toward the source of the sounds you are measuring.. When using the sensor, be mindful of the environment around it. Wind blowing across the opening or vibrations from the surface on which it is resting can cause the sensor to read much higher sound levels than it should. When collecting data, place the sensor on a soft surface or hold the sensor in your hand to separate the microphone from extraneous vibrations.. Example Sound Levels. ...
Many people choose to expose themselves to potentially dangerous sounds such as loud music, either via speakers, personal audio systems, or at clubs. The Conditioning, Adaptation and Acculturation to Loud Music (CAALM) Model has proposed a theoretical basis for this behaviour. To compare the model to data, we interviewed a group of people who were either regular nightclub-goers or who controlled the sound levels in nightclubs (bar managers, musicians, DJs, and sound engineers) about loud sound. Results showed four main themes relating to the enjoyment of loud sound: arousal/excitement, facilitation of socialisation, masking of both external sound and unwanted thoughts, and an emphasis and enhancement of personal identity. Furthermore, an interesting incidental finding was that sound levels appeared to increase gradually over the course of the evening until they plateaued at approximately 97 dBA Leq around midnight. Consideration of the data generated by the analysis revealed a complex of influential

The present invention relates to the communication or reproduction of sound, in particular audible sound. There is provided a method of communicating a sound, including the steps of: transmitting, onto an optical link, pairs of signal copies, the signal copies of a given pair having a time offset relative to one another; applying the audible sound to the optical link, such that the audible sound causes a phase modulation to the transmitted signal copies; receiving modulated signal copies previously transmitted onto the link; and, for received pairs of signal copies, causing one signal copy of a pair to mix with the other signal copy of that pair so as to produce a signal representative of the sound. The sound is an audible sound. It has been found that a delay of at least 75 micro seconds allows for a better reproduction of audio sounds, since these have a relatively low frequency content.
If Im going for a commercial, polished sound, I will choose songs that I love that are at a current commercial level of quality and use them as references. As I pick my sounds for the beat, I try to make sure that I pick sounds with similar frequencies in them as my reference. This is especially applicable with drum sounds. The sounds dont have to (and shouldnt) be exact, but starting with quality sounds makes it much easier to have a quality beat. What you dont want is to get to the mixing phase of the beat and realize that you have to mix the mess out of every sound just for the beat to sound decent when you could have started with picking quality sounds ...
Certain aspects relate to providing an at least one audio source to at least one user. Certain aspects relate to selectively modifying an at least one first sound source to be provided to the at least one user, wherein the at least one first sound source is combined with an at least one second sound source, and wherein the selectively modifying is performed relative to the at least one audio source based at least in part on at least some specific information of the at least one first sound source. Other aspects relate to selectively modifying the at least one first sound source to be provided to the at least one user relative to the at least one second sound source based at least in part on at least some specific information of the at least one first sound source.
We provide evidence for pulse register phonation in the songbird syrinx, which can be generated by all possible interactions of the two sound sources, but typically involves the use of both sound generators and always gives rise to sounds with a rich harmonic structure. Since sounds were induced in deeply anaesthetized crows, the short labial opening events and the alternation of opening between the left and right sound generators must reflect passive mechanical dynamics of the vocal organ. The alternation pattern indicates coupling between the two sound sources, which might include mechanical coupling presumably via the semilunar membrane and/or direct acoustic coupling. Muscular control of the observed vibration pattern is highly unlikely. Even if the thoracic compression induces a reflex-like neural response, the syringeal muscles would not be fast enough to account for rapid opening events of 1.5 ms duration (Elemans et al. 2004; Rome 2006). We therefore conclude that the observed vibratory ...
Sound Pressure (p) is the change in the static pressure of any media a sound wave passes through. The Sound Pressure Level (SPL) in decibels = 20 x the logarithm of the ratio of the sound pressure to the reference sound pressure of 0.00002 pascals.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is a no surgery and no anesthesia method of liposuction that destroys intractable fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. This type of sound waves can destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissue or organs. Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membranes succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the bodys normal metabolic method. Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated. Clients sees the results and are pleased with the increase of their bodys fat cell metabolism.. Ultrasonic Cavitation therapy makes it possible to apply concentrated levels of ultrasonic energy to specific treatment areas. This type of therapy targets and destroys subcutaneous fat cell membranes through a series of microscopic implosions. Once the fat cell membrane is destroyed, the fat cell is discharged ...
Objective Sounds of chewing, breathing, keyboard typing are considered by most people as normal sounds and are ignored as background sounds in everyday listening. However, for a group of people these sounds are not only distracting but also evoke a strong feeling of anger accompanied by an urge to escape from the situation producing these sounds. This condition, marked by sensitivity to a selective group of sounds, was given the name misophonia (hatred of sounds) almost a decade ago. Since the sounds that act as triggers in this condition are quite common at home, work place and in social gatherings, misophonia has devastating effects on social, family and personal life of the sufferer. Presently misophonia is not featured in any official medical/psychiatric classifications. People with misophonia suffer in silence because they do not share their problem with others for the fear of being called crazy. The objective of the current work was to check the consistency of profile of symptoms ...
Holophonics are binaural recording system created by Hugo Zuccarelli. Holophonics are based on the assumption that the auditory system acts as an interferometer, where electromagnetic waves are superimposed in order to extract information about the waves.. 3D holophonics relies on phase variance, just like stereophonic sound. Holophonics sounds are most clearly heard through headphones, though can be demonstrated to be effective with 2 channel stereo speakers, as long as they are phase coherent. In a 1983 article on the New Scientist, Hugo Zuccarelli stated that the human auditory system is a sound emitter, producing a reference sound that combines with incoming sound to form an interference pattern inside the ear. The nature of this pattern is sensitive to the direction of the incoming sound. According to the hypothesis, the cochlea detects and analyzes this pattern as if it were an acoustic hologram. The brain then interprets this data and infers the direction of the sound. Recordings released ...

The sensors, which are based on SAW (surface acoustic wave) technology, are being used by the company as an aid to evaluating the performance of miniature electric motors.. To address motor-selection issues and, in particular, to assist in the development of a handheld sheep shear, Lister Shearing decided to set up a motor test rig that would allow the performance of motors from various suppliers to be compared quickly and easily.. A key requirement for this rig was that it should be able to accurately determine the torque produced by each motor and its speed under a range of operating conditions.. Torqsense sensors depend on surface acoustic wave transducers that comprise of two thin metal electrodes, in the form of interlocking fingers, on a piezoelectric substrate such as quartz.. When an RF signal of the correct frequency is applied to the transducer, surface acoustic waves are set up and the transducer behaves as a resonant circuit.. The essential feature, however, is that, if the substrate ...
Some conditions that affect your pet arent always evident during a clinic examination, which is why diagnostics such as X-rays, ultrasound and blood pressure monitors are used.. Here at Robin Lewis we use both X-ray and ultrasound technology to help get to the source of the problem quickly.. Both procedures are examples of medical imaging; both are painless and non-invasive.. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves and is a useful tool for imaging soft tissue such as the liver, bladder, heart and kidneys.. Our team will use an ultrasound probe, which sends out pulses of very high frequency sound, which penetrate the bodys tissues. Some of the sound waves are reflected when they meet an internal surface. The probe measures these reflected waves to create an image on screen.. X-rays on the other hand produce images of the inside of the body and are an effective way of looking at bones as well as some soft tissue. Animals must be anaethetised or sedated to prevent movement during the procedure ...
