Gating related activity in a syringeal muscle allows the reconstruction of zebra finches songs.

Birdsong production involves the simultaneous and precise control of a set of muscles that change the configuration and dynamics of the vocal organ. Although it has been reported that each one of the different muscles is primarily involved in the control of one acoustic feature, recent advances have shown that they act synergistically to achieve the dynamical state necessary for phonation. In this work, we present a set of criteria that allow the extraction of gating-related information from the electromyographic activity of the syringealis ventralis muscle, a muscle that has been shown to be involved in frequency modulation. Using dynamical models of the muscle and syringeal dynamics, we obtain a full reconstruction of the zebra finch song using only the activity of this muscle.
