Seeking infant vocalization corpus



Greetings. I'm seeking high-quality recordings of infant vocalizations (cries, babbling, etc.), ideally from a large representative sample of infants. Does there exist such a 'pre-speech' corpus?

Many thanks.

Dear List,

We have three studentships currently advertised for PhD study in hearing at=
Manchester University. A brief description and links to more details below=



Please disseminate to students who may be interested. =

'Assessing benefit from bilateral versus unilateral hearing aid fittings': =
This project will address the lack of evidence of real-world benefit from b=
ilateral hearing aid fitting and identify individuals for whom the drawback=
s of a bilateral fitting would outweigh the advantages.

'Developing cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEP) as a tool for assess=
ment of hearing status in infants with Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorde=
r (ANSD)': This project will investigate the usefulness and reliability of =
CAEP as a tool for objective assessment of hearing thresholds in infants wi=
th ANSD. First, the effects of different sleep states and stimuli on the CA=

nd function in infants with ANSD will be investigated
