The function of the profuse descending innervation from the auditory cortex is largely unknown; however, recent studies have demonstrated that focal stimulation of auditory cortex effects frequency tuning curves, duration tuning, and other auditory parameters in the inferior colliculus. Here we demonstrate that, in an anesthetized guinea pig, nonfocal(More)
The separation of concurrently presented sounds into distinct auditory objects is accompanied by the elicitation of the object-related negativity (ORN) component of the event-related potential (ERP). In the present study, participants were exposed to tone sequences containing not only concurrent (harmonicity), but also sequential cues (similarity to(More)
Reversible inactivation of the cortex by surface cooling is a powerful method for studying the function of a particular area. Implanted cooling cryoloops have been used to study the role of individual cortical areas in auditory processing of awake-behaving cats. Cryoloops have also been used in rodents for reversible inactivation of the cortex, but recently(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate a neurophysiological correlate of the perceptual enhancement of noise-masked sounds when the masking frequencies have a wide spectral bandwidth and are coherently amplitude-modulated. METHODS Auditory evoked potentials were recorded to 1 kHz tones (200 ms, 61 dBSPL, SOA 3s) occurring in silence or with 80 dB masking noise, which(More)
We report on the design and the collection of a multi-modal data corpus for cognitive acoustic scene analysis. Sounds are generated by stationary and moving sources (people), that is by omni-directional speakers mounted on people's heads. One or two subjects walk along predetermined systematic and random paths, in synchrony and out of sync. Sound is(More)
