    • Acquisition and Generalization of Pitch Probability Profiles 

      Collett, J. Meghan (2013-08-14)
      Krumhansl (1990) has proposed that our sense of tonality is based, in part, on the perception and internal representation of the hierarchies of pitch class salience in music. It has further been proposed that regularities ...
    • Analysis of Pigeons' Head and Body Movements While Pecking 

      Reid, Thomas (2015-10-13)
      Pigeons have been shown to follow a specific sequence of behaviour while pecking. The pecking motion appears to be a single continuous movement, however video analysis examined at frame rates slower than real-time has shown ...
    • Components of Biological Motion Perception 

      Saunders, Daniel Robert (2011-05-27)
      Biological motion perception, defined as the ability to retrieve information from minimal displays of animal motion, has often been discussed as though it represents a single mechanism. However, depending on the task and ...
    • Effects of anxiety on perceptual biases for ambiguous biological motion stimuli 

      Heenan, Adam (2014-07-28)
      Biological motion stimuli, depicted as orthographically projected point-light or stick-figure walkers, do not contain any information about their orientation in depth. The projections of such stimuli, therefore, provide ...
    • The Facing-the-Viewer Bias in the Perception of Depth Ambiguous Human Figures 

      Weech, Seamas (2013-08-13)
      Orthographically-projected biological motion point-light displays generally contain no information about their in-depth orientation, yet observers consistently prefer the facing-the-viewer (FTV) interpretation (Vanrie, ...
    • Familiarity and Preference for Pitch Probability Profiles 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing; Collett, J. Meghan; Troje, Nikolaus F.; Cuddy, L. Lola (2016-02-18)
      We investigated familiarity and preference judgments of participants toward a novel musical system. We exposed participants to tone sequences generated from a novel pitch probability profile. Afterward, we either asked ...
    • The Impact of Noisy Vestibular Stimulation on Self-motion Phenomena 

      Weech, Seamas
      Low immersion and sickness experienced in virtual reality (VR) are two important barriers that inhibit the widespread adoption of VR technology. Both are thought to relate to visual-vestibular mismatch. Recoupling multisensory ...
    • Perceptual Effects of Inconsistency in Human Animations 

      Kenny, Sophie
      Animation retargeting is a method of producing human-like animations for use in research, video games, and movies. The procedure consists of capturing the motion of a performer and applying it to a computerized avatar. In ...
    • Short and Long Term Representation of an Unfamiliar Tone Distribution 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing; Diercks, Charlette; Troje, Nikolaus F.; Cuddy, L. Lola (2016-08-11)
      We report on a study conducted to extend our knowledge about the process of gaining a mental representation of music. Several studies, inspired by research on the statistical learning of language, have investigated statistical ...
    • Unintentional Learning of Musical Pitch Hierarchy 

      Cui, Anja-Xiaoxing (2014-08-14)
      It has been proposed that our knowledge about music is acquired passively, without intention, through exposure to music (Zatorre & Salimpoor, 2013). Research has shown that the mental tonal hierarchy of a listener, as ...
