  • Echolocation in a Nocturnal Primate? [Journal Article]
    Folia Primatol (Basel) 2019; 90(5):379-391Gursky S
  • Recently it has been noted that Gursky's spectral tarsier emits ultrasonic calls. Because high-frequency sounds are capable of travelling only short distances, their function is limited by the distance the sound can be discerned. One possible function for these short-distance, high-frequency sounds is that they might be used by the tarsiers to navigate throughout their environment. I conducted th…
  • Implicit associations between individual properties of color and sound. [Journal Article]
    Atten Percept Psychophys 2019; 81(3):764-777Anikin A, Johansson N
  • We report a series of 22 experiments in which the implicit associations test (IAT) was used to investigate cross-modal correspondences between visual (luminance, hue [R-G, B-Y], saturation) and acoustic (loudness, pitch, formants [F1, F2], spectral centroid, trill) dimensions. Colors were sampled from the perceptually accurate CIE-Lab space, and the complex, vowel-like sounds were created with a …
  • Effect of three semi-occluded vocal tract therapy programmes on the phonation of patients with dysphonia: lip trill, water-resistance therapy and straw phonation. [Journal Article]
    Int J Lang Commun Disord 2019; 54(1):50-61Meerschman I, Van Lierde K, … D'haeseleer E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results suggest that SOVT therapy programmes including lip trill or straw phonation can improve the objective vocal quality in patients with dysphonia. Auditory-perceptual improvements were found after straw phonation therapy, whereas psychosocial improvements were found after lip trill and WRT. Patients seem to experience more comfort and a better self-perceived vocal quality after WRT. This study supports the use of the three SOVT therapy programmes in clinical practice. They all had a positive impact on one or more outcomes of the multidimensional voice assessment. Strikingly, vocal quality outcomes were not in line with the subject's opinion. Larger-scale investigation is needed to support these preliminary findings.
