Abstract:Complex acoustic communication sounds play a crucial role in coordinating social and reproductive behaviors in many terrestrial species. However, the biological significance of each component of such complex sounds is still unclear. Most of the calls of male anuran species are composed of a series of notes and intervals. For example, advertisement calls of the male Emei music frog (Babina daunchina) frequently contain one to ten or more notes that are separated by intervals of approximately 150 ms. Therefore, Emei music frog is an interesting model to explore the biological significance of each note. By using the optimized paradigm of mismatch negativity (MMN), one standard stimulus (white noise) and 5 deviant stimuli(5 notes from one advertisement call) were played back to frogs and multichannel electroencephalogram recordings were then obtained. The results showed that the MMN amplitudes were greater in the left hemisphere, indicating a left brain advantage for perceiving these deviations. While the MMN amplitude of the first note was significantly larger than that of others. Since the MMN amplitude is thought to reflect not only the difference between the standard and deviant stimuli, but also the brain resources devoted to cognitive processing, it is reasonable to speculate that the first note is the most important unit of vocal communication in frogs.
