Re: Children and complex pitch perception

Thanks Hugh, and also Damir Kovacic reminded me of his recent paper on gender recognition:

Kovacic and Balabanan (2009) JASA 126(2): 762-775

Peng and colleagues have also examined intonation perception by children:

Peng, Tomblin, Turner (2008) Ear Hear 29(3): 336-351

And Rochelle Newman pointed me to important work on infants and motherese by Fernald and colleagues.

Not a lot of psychophysics-type stuff, but there's enough here to glean the necessary information I think.

Thanks everyone, and I look forward to more info on this.

Subject: Children and complex pitch perception

Dear list,

I'm looking for papers on complex (e.g., voice) pitch perception by
children, normally hearing or cochlear implanted. Any pointers would be
greatly appreciated. There seems to be a lot of work done on production,
but not a lot of rigorous stuff on pitch perception...or am I missing
something big that reviewers will slam me for?
