    • Bottlenose dolphins exchange signature whistles when meeting at sea. 

      Quick, Nicola J; Janik, Vincent M (Proc Biol Sci, 2012-07-07)
      The bottlenose dolphin, Tursiops truncatus, is one of very few animals that, through vocal learning, can invent novel acoustic signals and copy whistles of conspecifics. Furthermore, receivers can extract identity information ...
    • Early onset of deafening-induced song deterioration and differential requirements of the pallial-basal ganglia vocal pathway. 

      Horita, Haruhito; Wada, Kazuhiro; Jarvis, Erich D (Eur J Neurosci, 2008-12)
      Similar to humans, songbirds rely on auditory feedback to maintain the acoustic and sequence structure of adult learned vocalizations. When songbirds are deafened, the learned features of song, such as syllable structure ...
    • Major and minor music compared to excited and subdued speech. 

      Bowling, Daniel L; Gill, Kamraan; Choi, Jonathan D; Prinz, Joseph; Purves, Dale (J Acoust Soc Am, 2010-01)
      The affective impact of music arises from a variety of factors, including intensity, tempo, rhythm, and tonal relationships. The emotional coloring evoked by intensity, tempo, and rhythm appears to arise from association ...
    • Mouse vocal communication system: are ultrasounds learned or innate? 

      Arriaga, Gustavo; Jarvis, Erich D (Brain Lang, 2013-01)
      Mouse ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) are often used as behavioral readouts of internal states, to measure effects of social and pharmacological manipulations, and for behavioral phenotyping of mouse models for neuropsychiatric ...
    • The roar of the lionfishes Pterois volitans and Pterois miles. 

      Beattie, M; Nowacek, DP; Bogdanoff, AK; Akins, L; Morris, JA (J Fish Biol, 2017-06)
      Through the analysis of acoustic recordings of captive Pterois spp., this study has confirmed anecdotal evidence that Pterois spp. are soniferous. This report of sound production in Pterois spp. provides the foundation for ...
