The 6th Annual Auditory Perception, Cognition, and Action Meeting will be
held on Thursday, November 15, 2007
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Long Beach, California
APCAM will be held just prior to the Annual Meeting of the Psychonomic
Society (see http://psychonomic.org/ ). The goal of APCAM is to bring
together researchers from various theoretical perspectives to present
focused research on auditory cognition, perception, and aurally guided
action. APCAM is a unique meeting in its exclusive focus on the perceptual,
cognitive, and behavioral aspects of audition.
For on-line submission and registration, go to: http://www.apcam.us/
The deadline for submissions is
*** Saturday, September 15th ****
Topics may include (but are certainly not limited to):
*Auditory localization, motion perception, and spatial cognition *Auditory
object, event, and pattern perception (including speech) *Aurally guided
action and navigation *Auditory scene analysis *Auditory timing and
attention *Pitch, loudness, and timbre perception *Music perception,
cognition, and performance *Comparative auditory processing *Auditory
behavioral neuroscience *Auditory memory and source identification
We are pleased to announce that this year's meeting will include a keynote
address by Dr. Aniruddh D. Patel of the Neurosciences Institute
Title: Rhythm in speech and music: parallels and differences.
Abstract: In this talk I draw a basic distinction between periodic and
nonperiodic rhythms in human auditory cognition. I argue that music and
speech have fundamental differences in terms of periodic rhythms, and deep
connections in terms of nonperiodic rhythms.
Evidence for this argument draws on diverse strands of evidence including
empirical comparisons of rhythmic structure in the two domains, research on
rhythm perception, and data from cognitive neuroscience.
