      Giller, Cole A.; Murro, Anthony M.; Park, Yong; Strickland, Suzanne; Smith, Joseph R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Although EEG sonification has been well studied, little attention has been paid to its use to identify the seizure focus in patients undergoing epilepsy surgery. We explore the requirements imposed by this application, and ...
    • Effects of pleasant and unpleasant auditory mood induction on the performance and in brain activity in cognitive tasks 

      Gröhn, Matti; Ahonen, Lauri; Huotilainen, Minna (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Mood induction with pleasant and unpleasant auditory stimuli during the break. Our test includes subjective evaluation (Nasa-TLX, KSS, POMS), cognitive tests and brain responses (MEG and EEG). We aim studying the effect ...
    • Evaluating listeners’ attention to and comprehension of serialy interleaved, rate-accelerated speech 

      Brock, Derek; Peres, S. Camille; McClimens, Brian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In Navy command operations, individual watchstanders must often concurrently monitor two or more channels of spoken communications at a time, which in turn can undermine information awareness and decision performance. ...
    • Evaluation of a Matlab-based Virtual Audio Simulator with HRTF-Synthesis and Headphone Equalization 

      Wersényi, György (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Virtual audio simulators are the basic tools for localization experiments focusing on the parameters of the applied HRTFs. This paper presents a software solution capable of playback monotic wave files, setting the ...
    • Everyday listening to auditory displays: lessons from acoustic ecology 

      Droumeva, Milena; McGregor, Iain (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In order to design auditory displays that function well within the cultural, informational and acoustic ecology of everyday situations designers as well as researchers in psychoacoustics need to continue to gain a better ...
    • Exploring 3D audio for brain sonification 

      Schmele, Timothy; Gomez, Imanol (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Brain activity data, measured by functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), produces extremely high dimensional, sparse and noisy signals which are difficult to visualize, monitor and analyze. The use of spatial music ...
    • Hearing Nano-Structures: A Case Study in Timbral Sonification 

      Schedel, Margaret; Yager, Kevin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      We explore the sonification of x-ray scattering data, which are two-dimensional arrays of intensity whose meaning is obscure and non-intuitive. Direct mapping of the experimental data into sound is found to produce timbral ...
    • Impoving the efficacy of auditory alarms in medical devices by exploring the effect of amplitude envelope on learning and retention 

      Gillard, Jessica; Schutz, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Despite strong interest in designing auditory alarms in medical devices, learning and retention of these alarms remains problematic. Based on our previous work exploring learning and retention of associations between ...
    • InteNtion – Interactive Network Sonification 

      Giot, Rudi; Courbe, Yohan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This paper presents an innovative approach in monitoring network traffic by adding a new dimension: the sound. InteNtion (Interactive Network Sonification) is a project aimed at mapping network activity to musical aesthetic. ...
    • Interfacing the Earth 

      Beyls, Peter (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      We provide a short introduction to WindChime, a real-time web-driven audiovisual installation. Weather data from many world locations is gathered from a server and accommodated in a dynamic visual representation. The ...
