Glenda Angle, Texas A&M University-Commerce will speak on:

Quantitative Analysis of Serinus Canarius Vocal Repertoire


In this talk we present a detailed quantitative analysis of the vocal repertoire of a domestic sterilized male canary (Serinus Canarius) by using multivariate statistical methods and temporal and spectral feature extraction. In the first part of the talk, combination of various powerful methods will be employed to classify all canary syllables and construct a complete seasonal syllable dictionary for the canary. In the second part, synthetic syllables corresponding to all entries in the dictionary will be generated providing a standardized framework for behavioral and neural studies of canaries.

All students and faculty are welcome to attend!
