Neural and behavioral investigations into timbre perception

Stephen M. Town, Jennifer K. Bizley
2013 Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience  
Here we begin by reviewing human timbre perception and the spectral and temporal acoustic features that give rise to timbre in speech, musical and environmental sounds.  ...  Timbre is the attribute that distinguishes sounds of equal pitch, loudness and duration.  ...  Human listeners are able to classify the material, hollowness and, to a lesser extent, size and shape of such bars or plates from the impacted sound alone (Lakatos et al., 1997; Kunkler-Peck and Turvey  ...

Comparison of procedures for determination of acoustic nonlinearity of some inhomogeneous materials

L. Bjørnø
1983 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Results implicate the specific language experience of the subjects, e.g., French lacks/0/; the impact of natural or synthetic speech as sources of stimulus materials; and phonetic perception.  ...  For timbre, an approach that focuses on the dynamics of the sound-producing activity rather than on the resulting spectra will be described.  ...  The behavior of the frequency dependence manifests an asymptotic approach to geometric acoustics in the high-frequeacy limit.  ...

2018 Frontiers in Neuroscience  
In this review article, we describe the state of the art in decoding inner speech, ranging from early acoustic sound features, to higher order speech units.  ...  Despite intense efforts, investigating how the human cortex encodes inner speech remains an elusive challenge, due to the lack of behavioral and observable measures.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This article is adapted from the following doctorate thesis: Understanding and decoding imagined speech using intracranial recordings in the human brain (Martin, 2017) .  ...

Neural substrate of concurrent sound perception: direct electrophysiological recordings from human auditory cortex

Aurélie Bidet-Caulet
2008 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Each sound consisted of amplitude-modulated tones at different carrier and modulation frequencies, allowing a cortical tagging of each sound.  ...  These results in the auditory cortex provide an anatomically refi ned description of the neurophysiological components which might be involved in the perception of concurrent sounds.  ...  However, we describe the neurophysiological correlates of the impact of the acoustic context on concurrent sound perception, specifi cally in terms of frequency selectivity and habituation mechanisms.  ...

A Neurophysiological Study of Musical Pitch Identification in Mandarin-Speaking Cochlear Implant Users

Jieqing Cai, Yimeng Liu, Minyun Yao, Muqing Xu, Hongzheng Zhang
2020 Neural Plasticity  
Early behavioral studies revealed that similar mechanisms underlie musical and lexical pitch perception in CI-based electric hearing.  ...  Music perception in cochlear implant (CI) users is far from satisfactory, not only because of the technological limitations of current CI devices but also due to the neurophysiological alterations that  ...  This work was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (grant number 81670922), Science and Technology Planning Project of Guangdong Province (grant number 2017A020215144), and Natural  ...

Stefanie Hutka, Gavin M. Bidelman, Sylvain Moreno
2015 Neuropsychologia  
Stimuli included 'large deviant' and 'small deviant' pairs of sounds that differed minimally in pitch (fundamental frequency, F0; contrastive musical tones) or timbre (first formant, F1; contrastive speech  ...  We tested the degree to which pitch expertise stemming from musicianship or tone language experience similarly enhances the neural encoding of auditory information necessary for speech and music processing  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported by grants from the Ontario Graduate Scholarship, the GRAMMY s Foundation (USA), and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Discovery Grant  ...

Risto Näätänen, Bjørn Petersen, Ritva Torppa, Eila Lonka, Peter Vuust
2017 Hearing Research  
The MMN indexes discrimination of different sound stimuli with a precision matching with that of behavioral discrimination and can therefore be used as its objective index.  ...  Importantly, these measurements can be reliably carried out even in the absence of attention and behavioral responses and therefore they can be extended to populations that are not capable of behaviorally  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank Anne Sofie Friis Andersen for her assistance on editing parts of the manuscript.  ...
