Abstract: The processes of producing and acquiring birdsong, like human speech, utilize interdependent neural systems for vocal learning and production. In addition to song, these brain areas are undoubtedly used for other affiliative behaviors. Oscine sound production is lateralized because their vocal organ contains two independently controlled sound sources. Therefore, songbirds offer a unique opportunity to study the biological relevance of lateralized behavioral control. Bengalese finches (Lonchura striata domestic… Show more

“…Learning acoustic parameters is a precursor for any subsequent learned modification of the spectral features of a vocalization 30 . Moreover, soft calls are encoded in a high order telencephalic nucleus of the motor pathway 10 , which is fundamental for the control of learned vocalizations, and may facilitate coordination of communication 31, 32 . Therefore, although vocal recognition is present in many vocal non-learners 5 and comprehension learning may just be a prerequisite rather than a driving force, we suggest that unlearned calls in vocal learners might provide a model to better understand the origin of vocal learning capabilities.…”

“…It has been shown that call-like vocalizations can be evoked by electrical stimulation of the midbrain area known as the dorsomedial part of the intercollicular nucleus (DM) 20 but more recent evidence suggests that the cortical forebrain pathway, necessary for the generation of learned courtship song 21 , is involved in social calling as well 16,17,22,23 . In particular, the cortical premotor nucleus HVC (used as a proper name) is well situated to time vocalizations during turn-taking because it receives direct auditory inputs 24 and is known to guide the temporal pattern of song 25 .…”

“…The results presented here have another interesting implication because of the close relatedness of songs and calls. Notably, songs and calls rely on some of the same mechanisms, as call plasticity in zebra finches seems to be related to the forebrain song nuclei [9,43,44,45,46,47]. Recent research has also shown that begging calls are developmental precursors for learned vocalizations [48].…”
