Measurements of the acoustical coupling of internally generated sound to the enlarged eardrum of male bullfrogs show distinct energy peaks coincident with those observed in the spectral envelopes of the release and mating calls, pointing to a previously unsuspected role for the ears in the sound broadcasting process of the bullfrog and possibly other anurans with similarly modified tympanic membranes.

Anthropomorphic Coding of Speech and Audio: A Model Inversion Approach

A tutorial on perceptual speech and audio coding using an invertible auditory model that allows the exploitation of the inherent redundancy of the human auditory system for the purpose of multiple description (joint source-channel) coding.

Noisy Speech Segmentation/Enhancement with Multiband Analysis and Neural Fuzzy Networks

A new speech segmentation method (ATF-based SONFIN algorithm) is proposed in fixed noise-level environment that contains the multiband analysis and a neural fuzzy network, and it achieves higher recognition rate than the TF-based robust algorithm.

Deep Neural Networks for Sound Event Detection

This thesis proposes to apply the modern machine learning methods called deep learning for SED to develop systems that can automatically detect the sound events commonly present in the authors' daily lives and finds that convolutional neural networks (CNN) are useful to learn shift-invariant filters that are essential for robust modeling of sound events.

Brain-like emergent auditory learning: A developmental method

A microscopic analysis of consistent word misperceptions.

Speech misperceptions have the potential to help us understand the mechanisms involved in human speech processing. Consistent misperceptions are especially helpful in this regard, eliminating the

Filterbank learning for deep neural network based polyphonic sound event detection

This work uses the first layer of a deep neural network to learn a mapping from a high-resolution magnitude spectrum to smaller amount of frequency bands, which effectively learns a filterbank for the sound event detection task.

Influencia del entorno acústico laboral en el comportamiento audiométrico y su correlación con el registro de otoemisiones acústicas de productos de distorsión

El ruido puede ser considerado el contaminante fisico con mayor presencia en el mundo laboral. La exposicion continuada sin la proteccion adecuada, a niveles sonoros de elevada intensidad constituye

Evaluation of audio source separation in the context of 3D audio

The emergence and broader availability of 3D audio systems allows for new possibilities in mixing, post-production and playback of audio content. Used in movie post-production for cinemas, as special



Fluid mechanics of the cochlea. Part 1

The physiology of the cochlea (part of the inner ear) is briefly examined in conjunction with a description of the ‘place’ theory of hearing. The role played fluid motions is seen to be of

Theory of Operation of the Cochlea: A Contribution to the Hydrodynamics of the Cochlea

This paper presents a short summary of calculations on the vibrations of the cochlear partition (basilar membrane). It is possible to determine the shape, velocity, and amplitude distribution of the

Optimizing digital speech coders by exploiting masking properties of the human ear

New results of masking and loudness reduction of noise are reported and the design principles of speech coding systems exploiting auditory masking are described.

The Human External and Middle Ear: Models and Concepts

The performance of the external ear, when viewed as a diffuse-field receiver, is given in a simple expression containing two acoustic impedances. In this sense, the external ear has a high frequency

A Hair Cell Model of Neural Response

A model of neural response to pure tones and tone bursts is presented, based on the Davis model of transduction which describes the cell receptor potential given cilia displacements, that is proportional to the cilia current.

An attempt is made to discover the physical processes in the cochlea which would yield results in agreement with observations. It is shown that the assumption of a 'passive' cochlea, where elements

How bats detect flying insects

In the process of evolution every possible niche for survival has been exploited by some animal species, and many species have become endowed with highly specialized skills that have given them exclusive access to some hidden treasures.

Under certain conditions the average rate of response varied without accompanying variation in the synchronized response and the average discharge rate each varied with stimulus level over 20--30-dB ranges.
