Researchers often perform hearing studies on fish in small tanks. The acoustic field in such a tank is considerably different from the acoustic field that occurs in the animal's natural environment. The significance of these differences is magnified by the nature of the fish's auditory system where either acoustic pressure (a scalar), acoustic particle(More)
In this paper, we discuss the issues encountered when trying to perform hearing experiments in water-filled tanks that are several meters in lateral extent, typically large in terms of the size of the animals under study but not necessarily so with respect to the wavelengths of interest. This paper presents measurements of pressure and particle motion(More)
Reverberation interferes with the ability to understand speech in rooms. Overlap-masking explains this degradation by assuming reverberant phonemes endure in time and mask subsequent reverberant phonemes. Most listeners benefit from binaural listening when reverberation exists, indicating that the listener's binaural system processes the two channels to(More)
In order to determine unambiguously the bearing of a sound source, a fish must be able to resolve acoustic pressure and the components of the acoustic displacement vector from the signals detected by the otolithic organs. A new hypothesis for the processing of acoustical information by bony fish is presented. It is demonstrated that much of the processing(More)
A randomized, double-blind controlled trial of low-dose heparin combined with sulfinpyrazone to prevent deep-vein thrombosis after operation on the hip was carried out. In a group of seventy-three patients after arthroplasty, postoperative thrombosis of the veins of the lower limbs occurred in 51 per cent of the control patients and in 36 per cent of the(More)
In vivo ultrasonic attenuation was estimated for extracranial soft tissues of two Tursiops truncatus and one Delphinapterus leucas. Backscatter data was non-invasively collected as part of routine health-based ultrasound examinations using a transducer operating in the 1.6-3.7 MHz frequency range. Data collected over the proximal mandible and temporal(More)
Platelets have recently been shown to trigger intrinsic coagulation by two alternative pathways, protect active clotting factors from inactivation by plasma inhibitors and catalyse intrinsic coagulation reactions on the platelet surface to form fibrin. To determine whether these platelet coagulant activities (PCA) might have a role in the pathogenesis of(More)
We investigated the roles of the swim bladder and the lateral line system in sound localization behavior by the plainfin midshipman fish (Porichthys notatus). Reproductive female midshipman underwent either surgical deflation of the swim bladder or cryoablation of the lateral line and were then tested in a monopolar sound source localization task. Fish with(More)
