Moderate evidence for a Lombard effect in a phylogenetically basal primate

Christian Schopf, Sabine Schmidt, Elke Zimmermann
2016 PeerJ  
The present findings emphasize an effect of context, and individual, and the need for further standardized approaches to disentangle the multiple system properties of mammalian vocal communication, important  ...  When background noise was increased, mouse lemurs were able to raise the amplitude of the voice, comparable to monkeys, but they did not show this effect consistently across context/individuals.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We thank our animal keepers for mouse lemur care and Sönke von den Berg and Tjard Bergmann for technical support.  ...

Selective Increase in Representations of Sounds Repeated at an Ethological Rate

H. Kim, S. Bao
2009 Journal of Neuroscience  
This temporal rate dependence of spectral plasticity may serve as a filtering mechanism to selectively enlarge representations of species-specific vocalizations.  ...  Certain rat calls are modulated near 6 Hz.  ...  Thus, we bandpass filtered all calls to obtain signals in the ranges of 25-50 kHz for pup calls or 25-75 kHz for adult calls, for further automatic identification of the calls based on their amplitude  ...

Classification of mouse ultrasonic vocalizations using deep learning [article]

Aleksandr Ivanenko, Paul Watkins, M. A. J. van Gerven, Kurt Hammerschmidt, Bernhard Englitz
2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
Mice use a large repertoire of ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) in different social contexts, for instance courtship, territorial dispute, dominance and mother-pup interaction.  ...  Vocalization characteristics of individual mice only contribute mildly, and sex-only classification reaches ~78%.  ...  differences in vocalization properties contribute to the identification of the sex.  ...
