Central nervous networks, be they a part of the human brain or a group of neurons in a snail, may be designed to produce distinct patterns of movement. Central pattern generators can account for the development and production of normal vocal signals without auditory feedback in non-songbirds. Songbirds need auditory feedback to develop and maintain the normal song of their species. The prerequisite for the use of auditory feedback for the control of song is a set of acoustic criteria or a… Expand
Early experience shapes vocal neural coding and perception in songbirds.
TLDR
What songbird studies have revealed about the role of early experience in the development of vocal behavior, auditory perception, and the processing of learned vocalizations by auditory neurons is reviewed. Expand
A taxonomy for vocal learning

TLDR
Selecting multiple animal models for comparing the neural pathways that generate these different forms of learning will provide a richer view of the evolution of complex vocal learning and the neural mechanisms that make it possible. Expand
Variation in vocal production learning across songbirds
Songbirds as a whole are considered to be vocal production learners, meaning that they modify the structure of their vocalizations as a result of experience with the vocalizations of others. The moreExpand
Dopamine regulation of human speech and bird song: A critical review
TLDR
The parallels between bird song and human speech from the perspective of dopaminergic control are discussed as well as important differences between these species are outlined. Expand
Expanding our horizons: central pattern generation in the context of complex activity sequences
  • A. Berkowitz

  • 2019
TLDR
How the central pattern generation concept can be applied to the control of complex, non-rhythmic, learned stereotypical activity sequences is discussed. Expand
Development of echolocation calls and neural selectivity for echolocation calls in the pallid bat
TLDR
This review suggests echolocating bats are suitable mammalian model systems to understand development of auditory behaviors and that bat species and call diversity provide a unique opportunity to address developmental constraints in the evolution of neural mechanisms of vocalization processing. Expand
Manipulations of sensory experiences during development reveal mechanisms underlying vocal learning biases in zebra finches
TLDR
That universal acoustic patterns are observed in the songs of both untutored and early‐deafened birds highlights the contribution motor production biases to the emergence of universals in culturally transmitted behaviors. Expand
Neuroethology of acoustic communication in field crickets - from signal generation to song recognition in an insect brain
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the current knowledge of the neurobiological basis underlying the acoustic communication for mate finding in field crickets with emphasis on the recent research progress to understand the neuronal networks for motor pattern generation and auditory pattern recognition of the calling song in Gryllus bimaculatus. Expand
Motor circuits help encode auditory memories of vocal models used to guide vocal learning
TLDR
Recent evidence from studies in songbirds is considered supporting the idea that vocal motor circuits also participate in the encoding of auditory experience of the vocal model, which may represent an efficient strategy for vocal learning that generalizes to other vocal learning species, including humans. Expand
The Basal Ganglia Is Necessary for Learning Spectral, but Not Temporal, Features of Birdsong
TLDR
A reinforcement learning paradigm is used to independently manipulate both spectral and temporal features of birdsong, a complex learned motor sequence, while recording and perturbing activity in underlying circuits to reveal a striking dissociation in how neural circuits underlie learning in the two domains.

TLDR
The results suggest that BOS tuning in LMAN is not used for error detection and constrain the nature of any error signal from LMAN to the motor system, and that a large portion of the input to this nucleus is from the motor control signals that generate the song rather than from auditory feedback. Expand
Decrystallization of adult birdsong by perturbation of auditory feedback
TLDR
Evidence is presented that auditory feedback is actively used in adulthood to maintain the stability of song structure in adult zebra finches, and that adult birds that do not learn new songs nevertheless retain a significant amount of plasticity in the brain. Expand
An ultra-sparse code underliesthe generation of neural sequences in a songbird
TLDR
It is suggested that at each time in the RA sequence, the ensemble of active RA neurons is driven by a subpopulation of RA-projecting HVC neurons that is active only at that time, which eliminates the problem of temporal interference during sequence generation and learning attributed to more distributed representations. Expand
Using temperature to analyze temporal dynamics in the songbird motor pathway
TLDR
Local manipulation of brain temperature should be broadly applicable to the identification of neural circuitry that controls the timing of behavioural sequences and, more generally, to the study of the origin and role of oscillatory and other forms of brain dynamics in neural systems. Expand
Real-Time Contributions of Auditory Feedback to Avian Vocal Motor Control
TLDR
It is demonstrated that song premotor circuitry is sensitive to auditory feedback during singing and suggested that feedback may contribute in real time to the control and calibration of song. Expand
The vocal control pathways in budgerigars differ from those in songbirds

TLDR
The principal aims in the present study were to determine exactly how similar the vocal control system in budgerigars is to that in songbirds and whether the vocal Control System in budgers receives auditory inputes from areas other than Field L. Expand
Central control of song in the canary, Serinus canarius
TLDR
Central nervous pathways controlling bird son in the canary are traced using a combination of behavioral and anatomical techniques and direct connections were found onto the cells of the motor nucleus innervating the syrinx, the organ of song production. Expand
Adult Bengalese finches (Lonchura striata var. domestica) require real-time auditory feedback to produce normal song syntax.
TLDR
The Bengalese finch is a close-ended learner that produces considerably variable songs as an adult; deafening adult finches resulted in development of abnormal song syntax in as little as 5 days; and there was considerable individual variation in the degree of song deterioration after deafening.

TLDR
The Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs was chosen as the main subject of investigation because its song displays both inherited and individually learned components, the relation between which is of particular interest. Expand
