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 ...
Beat deafness, a recently documented form of congenital amusia, provides a unique window into functional specialization of neural circuitry for the processing of musical stimuli: Beat-deaf individuals exhibit deficits that are specific to the detection of a regular beat in music and the ability to move along with a beat. Studies on the neural underpinnings of beat processing in the general population suggest that the auditory system is capable of pre-attentively generating a predictive model of upcoming sounds in a rhythmic pattern, subserved largely within auditory cortex and reflected in mismatch negativity (MMN) and P3 event-related potential (ERP) components. The current study examined these neural correlates of beat perception in two beat-deaf individuals, Mathieu and Marjorie, and a group of control participants under conditions in which auditory stimuli were either attended or ignored. Compared to control participants, Mathieu demonstrated reduced behavioral sensitivity to beat omissions ...

A new neuroimaging study conducted by researchers from the Montreal Neurological Institute of McGill University and the Université de Montréal at the International laboratory for Brain Music and Sound Research (BRAMS), has found that tone-deaf or amusic individuals have more grey matter in specific regions of the brain related to processing musical pitch, namely the right interior frontal gyrus and the right auditory cortex, as compared to those who are musically intact. The study, published in a recent issue of the prestigious Journal of Neuroscience, sheds light on the neurological basis for congenital amusia. Music, at all times of the year, but especially during the holidays, produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without, according to Confucius. Unfortunately, for about 4% of the population, music is less pleasure and more cacophony. Congenital amusia, or tone-deafness is a life-long disorder that impairs a persons ability to perceive or produce music, preventing otherwise
Congenital amusia is a disorder characterized by impaired musical skills, which can extend to an inability to recognize very familiar tunes. The neural bases of this deficit are now being deciphered. According to a study conducted by researchers from CNRS and Inserm at the Centre de Recherche en Neurosciences de Lyon (CNRS / Inserm / Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1), amusics exhibit altered processing of musical information in two regions of the brain: the auditory cortex and the frontal cortex, particularly in the right cerebral hemisphere. These alterations seem to be linked to anatomical anomalies in these same cortices. This work, published on April 2013 in the journal Brain, adds invaluable information to our understanding of amusia and, more generally, of the
save the weasel from Pop goes the Queen.. Some very famous individuals have been virtually completely tone deaf and include Ulysses S Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and Che Guevara. Grant once said to a reporter: "I only know two tunes. One of them is Yankee Doodle and the other isnt." Indeed, music apparently annoyed him. It seems that some individuals are congenitally impaired in being able to distinguish and respond to music and songs and this can be quite independent of language ability. This condition has been termed "Congenital amusia" and is suggested to be a developmental disorder similar to a specific language disorder such as dyslexia.. It is thought that this condition primarily affects the organisation and functioning of the auditory cortex itself in the brain and this is why its effects are so wide ranging. The assumption is that this is a genetic disorder which, if true, would lend considerable support to the argument that musical ability is adaptive rather than some kind of ...

The thesis Auditory Hallucinations in Youth is about auditory hallucinations in children and adolescents (hereafter youth). Experiencing an auditory hallucination means that someone hears something in the absence of an identifiable stimulus (sound). Auditory hallucinations can differ from undefinable sounds or mumbling to hearing clear music and/or hearing voices whispering or shouting. In the case of hearing voices, this is also called auditory verbal hallucinations. Previous research points to the frequent occurrence of auditory hallucinations. However, prevalence rates varied widely. Auditory hallucinations in youth are often transient. Nevertheless, while present, they can cause severe suffering and even be a symptom of psychopathology. Research following this thesis shows that almost one in ten people ever experience an auditory hallucination, with higher rates in children (12.7%) and adolescents (12.4%) than in adults (5.8%) and the elderly (4.5%). About a quarter (23.6%) of young ...
Binaural beat technology was once limited to acoustics or music laboratories, but Internet access and the portability of music files have resulted in audio file accessibility that contains the technology. A simple Internet search with the keywords "binaural beats dosing" will yield more than 118,000 hits of commercial websites, smartphone and tablet apps, articles, videos, music files, and product-related links. Some of these websites market audio files that claim various health benefits ranging from smoking cessation to lucid dreams. The titles of some audio files contain words such as peyote, marijuana, and opium, and these companies have been accused by the media of marketing to minors.. While binaural beats form the fundamental basis of all these audio files to induce brainwave synchronization, different binaural beat frequencies and types of sounds have been mixed in for variety. Sometimes the beats are unaccompanied, but they are often embedded in ambient sounds or different genres of ...
Absolute Pitch, commonly known as "Perfect Pitch", is most often defined as the ability of individuals with some musical training to identify the musical pitch or frequency of a note (or ambient sound) without reference to another pitch. Individuals with absolute pitch hear musical pitches and identify them immediately and effortlessly using letter names, (for example, "C" or "F-sharp"), without looking at the instrument being played or being given a reference.. This cognitive trait is generally considered a musical "gift" or enhancement. The prevalence in the general population is not known, however it has been estimated that 1 of 1500 school age children experience it.. We have established that Absolute Pitch has a strong genetic basis. We identified the location of Absolute Pitch genes on chromosomes 2 and 6 and are focused on identifying the specific genes.. ...

I had an auditory hallucination a few days ago while waking up from a nap (no, there were no drugs involved, just sleep). My head felt like it was buzzing like it sometimes does while waking up from a very deep sleep only this time the buzzing grew and grew until suddenly I heard something like a small choir (mostly male voices) singing "Aaaaah" briefly, then something like a pop and the sound and the buzzing were gone. It was pretty neat. Im chalking it up to "brains are weird that way".. Some time when I was much younger I once had a visual hallucination - also sleep-related, this time lack-thereof. I was driving home after a party (again no, no drugs involved) fighting the urge to fall asleep at the wheel when I saw one of those old-style bicycles with the huge front wheel dart out in front of me and disappear. Shortly after I saw a couple of flashing road barriers which also disappeared. Im confident that none of these were real but youll just have to take my word for it.. I have also ...
I am a single mother of 2 special needs children. First son is 6 years old, he is autistic, non verbal, not aware of danger, self harms and eats non-edible things.

The kids where put in Forster care for a week due to this. 3 days to their return home I was hospitalised again and the childrens services didnt want to provide support at home for them reason being they couldnt find any one. After dragging it for a bit, the SSW phoned me to say they will put support for me and the kids at home if I can get someone they will pay, maybe someone from the church, I dont have anyone but I told her Ill have the pastor announce it and see if anyone will be willing to pick it as a job.

When people are thinking about using Binaural Beats to help the meditation, generally they have little or no knowledge of the possible feelings that will experiment during the use of them. There are many types of sensations that can experiment when meditating, but with Binaural Beats it is possible that they experience early more than after months or years of practice.Now I am going to give some valuable information him. Why it is valuable?Because without knowing what you can find when uses Binaural Beats, people can get to be preoccupation or fear.Some people have done said to me that she did not know what to hope and scared totally them.This is a shame, since the effect can be made the next time very apprehensive and be limited that is trying to obtain. The main thing to remember is the practice of the meditation for the relaxation cannot make damage.It is only a case of letting go of his construction in the defense system (that generally means that if stranger feels, because they reject).To ...
Somewhere on a map youll find a compass. The image will be labeled with N, S, E and W (north, south, east and west). This is an image mnemonic. It helps you remember the relationship between directions, and the combinations of them (SSW, NNE, etc.).. I use a visualization of my grocery store to remind me of what to buy. I push the cart on the same route every four or five days, so Im familiar with the store. I start with the cheese-yogurt-egg isle, swing by the milk shelf and ignore the bakery, unless I need peanut butter, which, for some unfavorable reason, is next to the donuts. I move to the pharmacy-aspirin-toothpaste aisle, round the corner and go past the cookies and chips… Visualizing before I go helps me remember or, at least, to make a list of what I need..

This study examines the impact of social security on the retirement of married men aged 60-70 years. The empirical results are based on a rich file of data from the Social Security Administration (1973 CPS-IRS-SSA Exact Match File). The data permit precise calculation of social security wealth (the actuarial present value of benefits that a person would receive by retiring) denoted SSW. This variable measures social securitys effect on retirement. The estimated effects are significant and considerable. When SSW in-creases from $35,000 to $55,000 the probability of retirement rises by .15 for 62-64 year olds relative to a .41 retirement rate. For 65-70 year olds this increase is .22 relative to .78. For 60-61 year olds who are entitled to SSW but not old enough to receive benefits the estimated effect was small and insignificant. This supports the conclusion that the observed effect on men eligible for benefits is a causal relationship. The traditional method of comparing market and reservation ...
The so-called cocktail party-problem has already kept scientists busy for decades. How is it possible for the brain to filter familiar voices out of background noise? It is a long-standing hypothesis that we create a kind of sound library in the auditory cortex of the brain during the course of our lives. Professor Christian Leibold and Dr. Gonzalo Otazu, members of the Bernstein Center Munich and engaged at the Ludwig-Maximilians Universität (LMU) Munich now show in a new model how the brain can compare stored and perceived sounds in a particularly efficient manner. Figuratively speaking, current models operate on the following principle: An archivist (possibly the brain region thalamus) compares the incoming sound with the individual entries in the library, and receives the degree of matching for each entry. Usually, however, several entries fit similarly well, so the archivist does not know which result is actually the right one. The new model is different: as previously the archivist ...
Scientists Study Music Hallucinations http://www.sciencedaily.com/upi/index.php?feed=Science&article=UPI-1-20050712-12304700-bc-wales-hallucinations.xml [Thanks to Laird for this and the last one.] NEWPORT, Wales, July 12 (UPI) -- Psychiatrists at St. Cadocs Hospital in Wales have issued the largest case-series study ever published concerning musical hallucinations. Although the condition has been known for more than a century, it has rarely been studied, The New York Times reported Tuesday. It is believed musical hallucinations result from malfunctioning brain networks. Dr. Victor Aziz and Dr. Nick Warner analyzed 30 cases of musical hallucination covering 15 years and found in two-thirds of the cases musical hallucinations were the only mental disturbance experienced by the patients. Women tended to suffer musical hallucinations more than men, and the average patient was 78 years old. Religious music was heard in two-thirds of the cases. The researchers noted musical hallucinations differ ...
