    • Auditory morphology and hearing sensitivity in fossil New World monkeys. 

      Coleman, Mark N; Kay, Richard F; Colbert, Matthew W (Anatomical record (Hoboken, N.J. : 2007), 2010-10)
      In recent years it has become possible to investigate the hearing capabilities in fossils by analogy with studies in living taxa that correlate the bony morphology of the auditory system with hearing sensitivity. In this ...
    • For whom the bird sings: context-dependent gene expression. 

      Jarvis, ED; Scharff, C; Grossman, MR; Ramos, JA; Nottebohm, F (Neuron, 1998-10)
      Male zebra finches display two song behaviors: directed and undirected singing. The two differ little in the vocalizations produced but greatly in how song is delivered. "Directed" song is usually accompanied by a courtship ...
    • Learned birdsong and the neurobiology of human language. 

      Jarvis, Erich D (Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
      Vocal learning, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait found to date in only three distantly related groups of mammals (humans, bats, and cetaceans) and three distantly related groups of birds (parrots, hummingbirds, ...
    • Molecular mapping of brain areas involved in parrot vocal communication. 

      Jarvis, ED; Mello, CV (J Comp Neurol, 2000-03-27)
      Auditory and vocal regulation of gene expression occurs in separate discrete regions of the songbird brain. Here we demonstrate that regulated gene expression also occurs during vocal communication in a parrot, belonging ...
    • Sensory-motor transformations for speech occur bilaterally. 

      Cogan, Gregory B; Thesen, Thomas; Carlson, Chad; Doyle, Werner; Devinsky, Orrin; Pesaran, Bijan (Nature, 2014-03-06)
      Historically, the study of speech processing has emphasized a strong link between auditory perceptual input and motor production output. A kind of 'parity' is essential, as both perception- and production-based representations ...
