almost like really hearing

Thesis title: Measuring the mind’s ear: EEG of music imagery
The focus of this thesis is the overlap between perception and imagination of music, and whether subprocesses in music perception and imagination can be uncovered from the brain signal.
Less is more. More’s less.
Some is more than emptiness.
Count them, more or less.
Title: Range Searching: Emptiness, Reporting and Approximate Counting
Given a set of points in high dimensional space, we show how to preprocess them into a data structure such that given a range in space we can determine quickly whether this range is empty. We extending and improve the results of Matousek (1992), whose result was only for hyper planes, and Matousek & Agarwal (1994) who counted the points (with worse time bounds).
Our result has many applications such as, ray shooting on fat triangles being faster than on thin triangles (Less is more. More is less), various emptiness problems (Some is more than emptiness) and approximate counting data structures (Count them, more or less)
Speaking is hearing:
my brain’s tracking my own voice.
Don’t mess with my vowels.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
This dissertation investigates the neural mechanisms responsible for the correction of auditory errors in one’s own speech. Subjects compensated more for cross-vowel shifts than for shifts within a vowel’s normal range, despite identical magnitudes of the shifts. Auditory feedback control is thus sensitive to linguistic contrasts learned through auditory experience.
