"Ecological Psychoacoustics" outlines recent advances in dynamic, cognitive, and ecological investigations of auditory perception and ties this work to findings in more traditional areas of psychoacoustics. The book illuminates some of the converging evidence that is beginning to emerge from these traditionally divergent fields, providing a scientifically rigorous, "real world" perspective on auditory perception, cognition, and action. In a natural listening environment almost all sounds are dynamic, complex, and heard concurrently with other sounds. Yet, historically, traditional psychoacoustics has examined the perception of static, impoverished stimuli presented in isolation. "Ecological Psychoacoustics" examines recent work that challenges some of the traditional ideas about auditory perception that were established with these impoverished stimuli and provides a focused look at the perceptual processes that are more likely to occur in natural settings. It examines basic psychoacoustics from a more cognitive and ecological perspective. It provides broad coverage including both basic and applied research in auditory perception; and coherence and cross referencing among chapters.

Service-learning and Writing: Paving the Way for Literacy(ies) through Community Engagement discusses service-learning as a teaching and learning method and its integration with writing. The various authors, from different disciplines and institutions, present service-learning as a means of having students practice writing in real world settings, and they show how relationship-building and partnerships between higher education and diverse communities produce benefits for all involved - the students, faculty, administrators, and the communities themselves. This volume demonstrates how writing instruction and/or writing practice can complement community engagement and outreach at local, national, and international contexts. Through different cross-cultural contexts and academic disciplines, the various authors explore reflection, assessment, internalization, diversity, and multiple literacies and their importance when integrating service-learning in higher education and community literacy.

The Neuroscience of Spatio-Chromatic Vision


Baingio Pinna

This collection of papers by leading researchers in vision science deals with the role of color in spatial vision and the emergent spatio-chromatic properties within visual scenes.

Several fascinating phenomena are studied through psychophysical experiments and explained in terms of neural and computational models. Topics include: prior adaptation to blurry images, chromatic induction, the influence of color contrast on shape perception, Fechner-Benham subjective color, a novel filling-in effect – dynamic texture spreading, the watercolor illusion, and new illusions based on chromatic variations of the luminance profile across the boundaries.


The abstracts included in this supplement to Seeing and Perceiving: A Journal of Multisensory Science constitute the talks and posters presented at IMRF 2012, the 13th Annual IMRF Meeting in Oxford, held June 19-22 In Oxford, UK. The wide variety of subjects covered by these abstracts, and thewide range of nationalitites represented in the author list, highlight the continued growth of research on the topic of multisensory perception/integration worldwide.

Time perspective has, for instance, been used to investigate differences in risk taking, health-promoting behaviour, quality of life, aging

Timing is ever-present in our everyday life – from the ringing sounds of the alarm clock to our ability to walk, dance, remember, and communicate with others. This intimate relationship has lead scientists from different disciplines to investigate time and to explore how individuals perceive, process, and effectively use timing in their daily activities.
Timing & Time Perception aims to be the forum for all psychophysical, neuroimaging, pharmacological, computational, and theoretical advances on the topic of timing and time perception in humans and other animals. We envision a multidisciplinary approach to the topics covered, including the synergy of: Neuroscience and Philosophy for understanding the concept of time, Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence for adapting basic research to artificial agents, Psychiatry, Neurology, Behavioral and Computational Sciences for neuro-rehabilitation and modeling of the disordered brain, to name just a few.
Given the ubiquity of interval timing, this journal will host all basic studies, including interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary works on timing and time perception and serve as a forum for discussion and extension of current knowledge on the topic.

In separate experimental sessions, in the operant and baseline conditions, participants report where the clock hand had been pointing when the action was executed and when
