Audiovisual correspondence between musical timbre and visual shapes
Abstract : This article investigates the cross-modal correspondences between musical timbre and shapes. Previously, such features as pitch, loudness, light intensity, visual size, and color characteristics have mostly been ...
A flexible bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre
A flexible and multipurpose bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre is presented in this paper. Inspired by findings in the fields of neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and psychoacoustics, not ...
A parallel supercomputer implementation of a biological inspired neural network and its use for pattern recognition
Abstract : A parallel implementation of a large spiking neural network is proposed and evaluated. The neural network implements the binding by synchrony process using the Oscillatory Dynamic Link Matcher (ODLM). Scalability, ...
Performance of three acoustical methods for localizing whales in the Saguenay - St. Lawrence Marine Park
Abstract : Three algorithms are explored to localize fin whale calls recorded from a large-aperture hydrophone array deployed in the Saguenay—St. Lawrence Marine Park. The methods have to cope with varying sound speed in ...
Brain at work : time, sparseness and superposition principles
Abstract : Many studies explored mechanisms through which the brain encodes sensory inputs allowing a coherent behavior. The brain could identify stimuli via a hierarchical stream of activity leading to a cardinal neuron ...
Wavelet speech enhancement based on time-scale adaptation
Abstract : We propose a new speech enhancement method based on time and scale adaptation of wavelet thresholds. The time dependency is introduced by approximating the Teager Energy of the wavelet coefficients, while the ...
Sensorial substitution system with encoding of visual objects into sounds
Abstract : Visual and auditory prostheses involve surgeries that are complex, expensive, and invasive. They are limited to a small number of electrodes and can only be used when the impairment is peripheral. The Vibe and ...
Objets sonores : une représentation bio-inspirée, hiérarchique, parcimonieuse à très grandes dimensions utilisable en reconnaissance
L’accent est placé dans cet article sur la structure hiérarchique, l’aspect parcimonieux de la représentation de l’information sonore, la très grande dimension des caractéristiques ainsi que sur l’indépendance des ...
Adaptation-induced plasticity and spike-waveforms in cat visual cortex
Abstract : Orientation-selective neurons shift their preferred orientation after being adapted to a nonpreferred orientation. These shifts of the peaks of tuning curves may be in the attractive or repulsive direction in ...
