    Combinatory Rules and Chunk Structure in Male Mueller’s Gibbon Songs.Yoichi Inoue, Waidi Sinun, Shigeto Yosida & Kazuo Okanoya - 2017 - Latest Issue of Interaction Studies 18 (1):1-25.
    Understanding whether the long and elaborate songs of male gibbons have syntax and hierarchical structures is an interesting question in the evolution of language, because gibbons are near humans in the phylogenetic tree and a hierarchically organized syntax is considered to be a basic component of human language. We conducted field research at Danum Valley Conservation Area in northern Borneo to test the hypothesis that gibbon songs have syntax and chunks. We followed one Mueller’s gibbon group for 1 week in (...)

    Ecological Correlates of Song Complexity in White-Rumped Munias: The Implication of Relaxation of Selection as a Cause for Signal Variation in Birdsong.Hiroko Kagawa, Hiroko Yamada, Ruey-Shing Lin, Taku Mizuta, Toshikazu Hasegawa & Kazuo Okanoya - 2012 - Interaction Studiesinteraction Studies Social Behaviour and Communication in Biological and Artificial Systems 13 (2):263-284.
    Male white-rumped munias sing syntactically simpler songs than their domestic counterparts, Bengalese finches. The differences in song structure may reflect differences in natural selection pressures between wild and domestic environments. Deacon proposed song simplicity of the wild strain could be subject to natural selection. We hypothesized the selection pressure may be species identification. Thus, we compared song variations in relation to ecological factors and dispersal history of white-rumped munias to understand song evolutionary processes. We found geographic variations of song syntactical (...)

    Male white-rumped munias sing syntactically simpler songs than their domestic counterparts, Bengalese finches. The differences in song structure may reflect differences in natural selection pressures between wild and domestic environments.

Thus, we compared song variations in relation to ecological factors and dispersal history of white-rumped munias to understand song evolutionary processes.

    Intergroup and Intragroup Antiphonal Songs in Wild Male Muellers Gibbons (Hylobates Muelleri).Yoichi Inoue, Waidi Sinun, Shigeto Yosida & Kazuo Okanoya - 2013 - Interaction Studies 14 (1):24-43.
    Mueller's gibbons ( Hylobates muelleri ) sing both sex-specific and duet songs. These songs are thought to be involved in territory maintenance, as well as the maintenance of pair or family bonds. However, few observational studies have examined how gibbons interact with their neighbors through song in the wild. We have been conducting field observations of wild gibbon groups in northeast Borneo since 2001. In the Borneo Rainforest Lodge (BRL) and Danum Valley Field Center (DVFC) at the Danum Valley Conservation (...)

    Copulation Calls in Wild Mueller’s Gibbons.Yoichi Inoue, Waidi Sinun & Kazuo Okanoya - 2019 - Interaction Studies 20 (2):362-374.
    Mating activity of a wild Mueller’s gibbon group was observed in the Danum Valley Conservation Area, Sabah, Malaysia. The purpose of this study was to investigate the function of copulation calls in gibbons. The female emitted copulation calls at the time of intromission and pelvic thrusting. Copulation calls were composed of two notes and one of them was sung only while mating. Approximately half of copulation calls were sung near the range boundary. Mating with copulation calls sometimes occurred while singing. (...)

    Auditory-Motor Matching in Vocal Recognition and Imitative Learning.Antonella Tramacere, Pier Francesco Ferrari, Atsushi Iriki, Kazuo Okanoya & Kazuhiro Wada - 2019 - Neuroscience 409:222-234.
    Songbirds possess mirror neurons (MNs) activating during the perception and execution of specific features of songs. These neurons are located in high vocal center (HVC), a premotor nucleus implicated in song perception, production and learning, making worth to inquire their properties and functions in vocal recognition and imitative learning. By integrating a body of brain and behavioral data, we discuss neurophysiology, anatomical, computational properties and possible functions of songbird MNs. -/- We state that the neurophysiological properties of songbird MNs depends (...)
