New Fellows of the Acoustical Society of America

The Acoustical Society of America is pleased to announce new fellows elected on 31 October 2014. 

Let’s put an acoustician on the Hill!

ASA cosponsors a Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship with the American Institute of Physics, which enables a scientist or engineer to contribute to the legislative process.  Acoustical scientists and engineers at all career stages, including mid- and late-career professionals, are invited to apply.

NSF conducts search for the next Head of the Office of International Science and Engineering

The National Science Foundation is conducting a search for the next Head of the Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE). OISE oversees NSF's international research and education portfolio, and works closely with its disciplinary research directorates to develop an agency-wide strategy to cultivate international collaboration. Applications must be submitted by 1 December 2014.

This investigation explored the generalization of phonetic learning across talkers following training on a nonnative (Hindi dental and retroflex) contrast. Participants were trained in two groups, either in the morning or in the evening. Discrimination and identification performance was assessed in the trained talker and an untrained talker three times over 24 h following training. Results suggest that overnight consolidation promotes generalization across talkers in identification, but not necessarily discrimination, of nonnative speech sounds.

This study presents the first reported measurements of stimulus frequency emissions (SFOAEs) in 15 human newborns and compares their magnitudes and phase-gradient delays to those reported in adults. SFOAEs in newborns were measured at stimulus levels as low as 15 dB sound pressure level...
