The evolution of language by W. Tecumseh Fitch( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language, more than anything else, is what makes us human. It appears that no communication system of equivalent power exists elsewhere in the animal kingdom. Any normal human child will learn a language based on rather sparse data in the surrounding world, while even the brightest chimpanzee, exposed to the same environment, will not. Why not? How, and why, did language evolve in our species and not in others?" "Since Darwin's theory of evolution, questions about the origin of language have generated a rapidly growing scientific literature, stretched across a number of disciplines, much of it directed at specialist audiences. The diversity of perspectives - from linguistics, anthropology, speech science, genetics, neuroscience, and evolutionary biology - can be bewildering. Covering diverse and fascinating topics, from Kaspar Hauser to Clever Hans, Tecumseh Fitch provides a clear and comprehensible guide to this vast literature, bringing together its most important insights to explore one of the biggest unsolved puzzles of human history."--Jacket
Why do we talk?( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The average person will speak approximately 370 million words in his or her lifetime - a simple fact. And yet the underlying structures - sociological, anatomical, developmental, intellectual - have proved to be some of science's most impenetrable mysteries. This program spotlights researchers who are unlocking the deepest secrets of speech: Deb Roy and the human Speechome Project; Tecumseh Fitch and his study of vocal tract positioning in animals; Cathy Price, who is piecing together a speech-related map of the brain; William Fifer and his study of the roots of language reception in babies; Ofer Tchernichovski, who is conducting the Forbidden Experiment with zebra finches; Faraneh Vargha-Khadem and the isolation of speech gene FOXP2; and Simon Kirby, whose Alien Language Experiment illustrates the evolution of language from random to structured."--Container

Interference effect and cognitive control the case of pitch class change detection( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When two responses are possible and in conflict, the response to the relevant stimulus is prolonged. This effect has been shown in the cases of both automatic as well as controlled stimulus-response mappings. In this study we have explored whether the interference effect can be observed also in the case when the response depends on the comparison of two successively presented stimuli. Thirty eight musicians and non-musicians participated in a pitch class change detection task in which the target tones were embedded in a chord con text that changed or stayed the same congruently or in incongruence with the change of the pitch class of the target tones. The reaction times were shorter in congruent vs. incongruent condition, confirming a presence of an interference effect
