The real world presents our sensory systems with a continuous stream of undifferentiated information. Segmentation of this stream at event boundaries is necessary for object identification and feature extraction. Here, we investigate the neural dynamics of event segmentation in entire musical symphonies under natural listening conditions. We isolated(More)
The Sonification Application and Research Toolbox (SonART) is an open-source effort to develop a platform-independent collection of methods to map data to sonification parameters. A set of graphical user interface tools that will provide practical and intuitive utilities for experimentation and auditory display. SonART aims to provide publicly available,(More)
A goal of sonification research is the intuitive audio representation of complex, multidimensional data. The authors present two facets of this research that may provide insight into the creative process. First, they discuss aspects of categorical perception in non-verbal auditory scene analysis and propose that these characteristics are simplified models(More)
We describe a perceptual space for timbre, define an objective metric that takes into account perceptual orthogonality and measure the quality of timbre interpolation. We discuss two timbre representations and using these two representations , measure perceived relationships between pairs of sounds on a equivalent range of timbre variety. We determine that(More)
For the past several years, the University of Maryland School of Medicine has operated a successful and efficient basic science peer tutorial program through the management of the Office of Medical Education. During the 1981-82 and 1982-83 academic years, 122 tutoring dyads were formed to take advantage of the tutoring program in nine of the 10 basic(More)
