Most recent volume

Volume 27. Handbook of Ultrasonic Vocalization

Published: 1st January 2018 Editor: Stefan Brudzynski

Handbook of Ultrasonic Vocalization is an exhaustive resource on ultrasonic vocalizations in vertebrates, providing full coverage of all aspects of these vocalizations. The book also demonstrates the usefulness of ultrasonic vocalizations in studies of animal communication, sociobiological states, and mammalian models of affective disorders, addictions, and neurodevelopmental disorders, making it an indispensable resource for researchers using animal models in their work.

It begins with the evolution of vocal communication before moving to discussion of mechanisms of ultrasound production and perception and the brain systems involved in emotional arousal that are responsible for generation of vocalization and emotional states. Also covered are studies of neuroactive agents and sociophysiolgoical conditions that can regulate the outcome of ultrasonic vocalization and provide clues about animals’ internal states. Critically, the book also includes thorough coverage of pharmacological investigations using ultrasonic vocalizations, increasingly being utilized for studies in affective disorders, psychoses, addiction, and alcoholism. No other book available provides such extensive coverage of this rapidly growing field of study and provides readers all they need to know to effectively incorporate use of ultrasonic vocalization into their own research.
