Abstract

This paper reviews seven lines of auditory research which bear upon the issue of awareness in animals. First, comparative studies of auditory sensitivity have found important differences in the hearing abilities of animals such that sounds easily audible to one species may be inaudible to others. Second, studies of auditory attention indicate thatwhen an animal is presented with a complex stimulus, such as a sound that varies in both quality and location, it may attend to one featureand not the other depending on the particular situation. Third, studies of relational concepts have indicated that animals can respond to relations between sounds, for example, indicating whether two sounds are the same or different. Fourth, memory studies have begun to examine the ability of animals to remember sounds. Fifth, studies of auditory perception have demonstrated that animals can classify sounds into natural categories such as dog sounds vs. other sounds. Sixth, studies ofprimate alarm calls indicate the degree to which animals can use vocal communication within a species. Seventh, studies of an African grey parrot have demonstrated that this animal can communicate with us using human speech sounds. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
