Table 1 Description of call parameter used in the analysis

From: Mice do not require auditory input for the normal development of their ultrasonic vocalizations

Acoustic parameters Description
Duration [ms] Time between onset and offset of call
Amplitude gap [ms] Duration of breaks in amplitude within call
PF start [Hz] Start frequency of peak frequency
PF max [Hz] Maximum peak frequency
PF jump [Hz] Maximum difference of peak frequency between successive bins
PF max loc Location of PF max in relation to total call duration (1/duration) * location]
PF jump loc Location of maximum PF jump in relation to total call duration [(1/duration) * location]
Slope of trend Factor of linear trend of peak frequency
