Acknowledgement The authors were partially funded by the Ministry of Human Capacities, Hungary  ...  This inevitably causes the recorded ultrasound video to become misaligned compared to a video recorded in a previous session. Therefore, such recordings are not directly comparable.  ...  Tongue movement was recorded in midsagittal orientation using the "Micro" ultrasound system of Articulate Instruments Ltd. at 82 fps.  ...

J. A. Jensen, D. Bk
2010 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Submarine canyons are common features of continental shelf and slope regions, e.g., Hudson Canyon in the Mid-Atlantic Bight.  ...  The idealized environment has a Gaussian shaped canyon incising a slope. Horizontal focusing of sound in the canyon and energy flow into the canyon from an off-axis sound source are observed.  ...  Impact of personal video recorder/digital video recorder on hard disk drive acoustic requirements.  ...

A binaural advantage in the subjective modulation transfer function with simple impulse responses

Eric R. Thompson, Torsten Dau
2008 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Most of the evidence supporting this hypothesis has been derived empirically from experiments in speech perception.  ...  The hypothesis is that binaural processing will give a significant improvement in speech quality.  ...  The rigidity might be a way to simplify sound-specific strategies for moving the tongue and controlling changes in its shape in normal and patient subjects.  ...
