Understanding Design Features of Music and Language: The Choric/Dialogic Distinction
Music and spoken language share certain characteristics: both consist of sequences of acoustic elements that are combinatorically combined, and these elements partition the same continuous acoustic

Oestrous red deer hinds prefer male roars with higher fundamental frequencies
TLDR
The response of oestrous red deer hinds to playback of re-synthesized male roars characterized by either higher than average or lower than average F0 is investigated, providing the first evidence of such a bias in nonhuman mammals.

The metabolic cost of neural information
TLDR
Biophysical measurements from cells in the blowfly retina yield estimates of the energy required to generate graded (analog) electrical signals that transmit known amounts of information, which promotes the distribution of information among multiple pathways.
Information processing in the axon
TLDR
This review considers recent evidence for the role of intrinsic voltage-gated conductances together with the intrinsic geometrical properties of the axon in the short-term dynamics of neural communication.
A Mathematical Theory of Communication
TLDR
It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.

On the Bandwagon?
TLDR
Intermediate care should be used to enhance and readjust the balance of rehabilitation services, not be deployed as a Trojan horse to eviscerate them.
