  The complexity of bird vocalizations has fascinated us throughout the ages and there has long been the suspicion that birds are capable of producing, perceiving, and learning features of their songs that are beyond the capabilities of human hearing. Other investigators point to similarities between song production and perception in birds and special perceptual and attentional processes that Author: Robert Dooling. For primates in their natural environments, species- specific vocalizations are among the most behaviorally im- portant and familiar sounds in life. In the present study we developed techniques to quantitatively evaluate physiologi- cal responses to natural vocalizations and to synthetic vocal- . Journals & Books; Help Download PDF Download.

In rats as well as in non-human primates species-specific vocalizations evoke cortical event-related potentials (ERPs) with long-latency positive components and direct current (dc) shifts, varying in amplitude and configuration and duration according to the cognitive processes involved and the affective significance of the stimulus.4, 32, 34, 80 Thus ERPs and dc shifts evoked by.

[email protected] The perception of species-specific vocalizations by Japanese macaques seems to be mediated by the temporal cortex, with the left hemisphere playing a predominant role. .   An attempt is being made to psychophysically characterize the Japanese macaque's perception of sounds drawn from its vocal communication system. In the course of constructing a vocal ethogram for this species, Green (Primate Behavier 4, 1– ()] identified several distinct classes of vocalizations which differ in acoustic structure and form as well as the sociobehavioral . Perception and Communication covers the significant advances in understanding the association between perception and communication. This book is composed of 12 chapters and starts with an overview of the value of auditory studies and the basic principles of perception and behavior theory.

Description Acoustic Communication in Birds, Volume 1: Production, Perception, and Design Features of Sounds presents the scientific study of bird vocalizations. This book discusses the relations between the physical structure of bird vocalization and their quality as perceived by the recipient. Get this from a library!
