hallucinations and the temporal cortical response to speech in schizophrenia: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study.
An 11-year-old boy with ASD presented to our clinic with a complaint of "auditory
hypersensitivity" by his parents.
A 28-year-old female Congo African grey parrot (Psittacus erithacus erithacus) was presented to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) at the University of California, Davis, for scratching the left side of its face, a mass in the left external auditory
meatus, and cessation of vocalization.
The resulting operant was a second-order conditional discrimination with auditory
and visual stimuli as samples and with visual stimuli as comparisons; this was the Auditory-Visual-Visual Conditional Discrimination (denoting the modality of the first conditional stimulus or contextual stimulus, e.g., "same"; the second conditional stimulus or sample, e.g., the picture of an empty jar; and the comparisons, e.g., the pictures of an empty jar, a full jar, a lit candle, and an unlit candle).
This objective audiological test is called auditory
steady state responses (ASSR).
Now, a pair of research papers published the week of April 22 from the University of Washington -- one in the Journal of Neuroscience, the other in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences -- use functional MRI to identify two differences in the brains of blind individuals that might be responsible for their abilities to make better use of auditory
The dance form requires auditory
attention to perform and act appropriately.
The objectives of the study were to compare the speed of the central nervous system and coordination between motor and sensory systems in congenitally total blind people and visually normal subjects using simple auditory
One intriguing example of the dominance of vision over audition is the Colavita effect, which refers to the phenomenon that participants often fail in responding to the auditory
component of bimodal audiovisual targets.,, The striking pattern of the dominance of vision over audition is almost as if the simultaneous presentation of the visual stimulus leads to the 'extinction' of the participants' conscious awareness of the auditory
stimulus.,,, Even when human participants are able to make explicit behavioral responses to both the visual and the auditory
components, they cannot always respond to them strictly simultaneously.
A deep look into the microstructure of planum temporale with the speed of auditory
speech processing has now become possible with the help of a new form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in combination with electroencephalography (EEG).
To rehabilitate her hearing, special funding was granted by the Ministry of Health for an Auditory
Brainstem Implant (ABI) to be implanted directly after the tumour removal.
feedback refers to the speech sounds received by the speaker's own auditory
system during oral production and it is an important component of the mechanisms of speech movements control .
