Sound

MIT neuroscientists developed a computer model that can localize sounds

We now have a model that can actually localize sounds in the real world

Activity in brain while switching between hearing and listening

Attention alters activity in brain areas.

Sound-light pulses observed in 2D materials for the first time

Scientists recorded the propagation of combined sound and light waves in atomically thin materials.

Study explains how sound waves travel through disordered materials

This work may lead to new heat- and shatter-resistant glass for smartphones and tablets.

For the first time, physicists captured the sound of a perfect liquid

The results should help scientists study the viscosity in neutron stars, the plasma of the early universe, and other strongly interacting fluids.

The upper limit for the speed of sound found

It is around twice as fast as the speed of sound in diamond.

Sound can be used in high-resolution imagery, study

Deep learning and metamaterials make the invisible visible

Aliens might be using a black hole to generate energy

In 1969, British physicist Roger Penrose put an idea on the table that energy could be generated by lowering an object into the black...

Nissan develops a 75% lighter sound insulation meta-material

New material can help make car cabins quieter while also boosting energy efficiency.

Counting sound particles with quantum microphone

Now it is possible to measure individual particles of sound, called phonons- thanks to Stanford Scientists who developed quantum microphone. The quantum microphone is...

How our brain distinguishes between voice and sound?

Researchers at UNIGE and Maastricht University have demonstrated that the brain adapts to a person’s listening intentions by focusing either on a speaker’s voice or on the speech sounds that are being uttered.

Engineers have created a shape that blocks all sound

We live in a loud world. Every moment of our day is likely filled with some sort of sound — some pleasant, some that...
