The musical environment and auditory plasticity: hearing the pitch of percussion
(FRONTIERS RESEARCH FOUNDATION, 2013-10-24)
Although musical skills clearly improve with training, pitch processing has generally been believed to be biologically determined by the behavior of brain stem neural mechanisms. Two main classes of pitch models have emerged ...
Pitch Enumeration: Failure to Subitize in Audition
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2012-04-02)
BACKGROUND: Subitizing involves recognition mechanisms that allow effortless enumeration of up to four visual objects, however despite ample resolution experimental data suggest that only one pitch can be reliably enumerated. ...
A blood-based biomarker panel indicates IL-10 and IL-12/23p40 are jointly associated as predictors of beta-amyloid load in an AD cohort
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2017-10-25)
Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, characterised by extracellular amyloid deposition as plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles of tau protein. As no current clinical test can diagnose ...
Pitch and plasticity: insights from the pitch matching of chords by musicians with absolute and relative pitch.
Absolute pitch (AP) is a form of sound recognition in which musical note names are associated with discrete musical pitch categories. The accuracy of pitch matching by non-AP musicians for chords has recently been shown ...
