The Panel on Public Policy has a working group to discuss acoustic weapons. Our members have the expertise, authority, and responsibility, to bring clarity to the question of acoustic weapons and the weaponization of sound more generally.

Some infants can identify differences in musical tones at six months! The study, published @ASA_JASA, examined the capacity of 6-month-old infants to discriminate between a major and a minor musical tone sequence. https://t.co/bXpNh5jYws https://t.co/dJrTQAreim acousticsorg photo

  • Phonetic categorization and discrimination of voice onset time under divided attention June 5, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL484-EL490, June 2020. Event durations are perceived to be shorter under divided attention. “Time shrinkage” is thought to be due to rapid attentional switches between tasks, leading to a loss of input samples, and hence, an under-estimation of duration. However, few studies […]

  • Numerical analysis of three-dimensional echo decorrelation imaging June 5, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL478-EL483, June 2020. A numerical model for three-dimensional echo decorrelation imaging, a pulse-echo ultrasound method applicable to thermal ablation monitoring, is presented. Beam patterns for steered transmit and receive array apertures are combined with a three-dimensional numerical tissue model to yield beamformed […]

  • Recognition of foreign-accented speech in noise: The interplay between talker intelligibility and linguistic structure June 5, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page 3765-3782, June 2020. Foreign-accented speech recognition is typically tested with linguistically simple materials, which offer a limited window into realistic speech processing. The present study examined the relationship between linguistic structure and talker intelligibility in several sentence-in-noise recognition experiments. Listeners transcribed simple/short […]

  • Sensitivity to major versus minor musical modes is bimodally distributed in young infants June 4, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page 3758-3764, June 2020. The difference between major and minor scales plays a central role in Western music. However, recent research using random tone sequences (“tone-scrambles”) has revealed a dramatically bimodal distribution in sensitivity to this difference: 30% of listeners are near perfect […]

  • Passive geoacoustic inversion in the Mid-Atlantic Bight in the presence of strong water column variability June 2, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL453-EL459, June 2020. Empirical Green's functions are obtained for 31 paths in a highly dynamic coastal ocean by cross-correlation of ambient and shipping noise recorded in the Shallow Water 2006 experiment on a horizontal line array and a single hydrophone about 3600 m […]

  • Acoustic and photographic monitoring of coastal maritime traffic: Influence on the soundscape June 2, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page 3749-3757, June 2020. Due to the absence of Automatic Identification System data (used by 3.7% of the Calvi bay fleet), the acoustic monitoring of coastal environments presents difficulties. A specific visual monitoring protocol has been set up on a photographic observatory using […]

  • No evidence for a link between noise exposure and auditory temporal processing for young adults with normal audiograms June 2, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL465-EL470, June 2020. The link between lifetime noise exposure and temporal processing abilities was investigated for 45 normal-hearing participants, recruited from a population of undergraduate students, aged 18 to 23 years. A self-report instrument was employed to assess the amount of neuropathic noise […]

  • A landmark-cue-based approach to analyzing the acoustic realizations of American English intervocalic flaps June 2, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL471-EL477, June 2020. This study examines the acoustic realizations of American English intervocalic flaps in the TIMIT corpus, using the landmark-critical feature-cue-based framework. Three different acoustic patterns of flaps are described: (i) both closure and release landmarks present, (ii) only the closure […]

  • How an aglossic speaker produces an alveolar-like percept without a functional tongue tip June 2, 2020
    The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, Volume 147, Issue 6, Page EL460-EL464, June 2020. It has been previously observed [McMicken, Salles, Berg, Vento-Wilson, Rogers, Toutios, and Narayanan. (2017). J. Commun. Disorders, Deaf Stud. Hear. Aids 5(2), 1–6] using real-time magnetic resonance imaging that a speaker with severe congenital tongue hypoplasia (aglossia) had developed […]
