  • Yamato, Maya; Ketten, Darlene R.; Arruda, Julie; Cramer, Scott R.; Moore, Kathleen M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2012-05-12)
    Cetaceans possess highly derived auditory systems adapted for underwater hearing. Odontoceti (toothed whales) are thought to receive sound through specialized fat bodies that contact the tympanoperiotic complex, the bones ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Li, Songhai; Ketten, Darlene R.; Wang, Kexiong; Wang, Ding (2011-08-09)
    Temporal cues are important for some forms of auditory processing, such as echolocation. Among odontocetes (toothed whales, dolphins, and porpoises), it has been suggested that porpoises may have temporal processing ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-11)
    Necropsy and histologic findings for examinations performed on beaked whales stranding between October, 1999 and June, 2002 are summarized and the finding interpreted. They are presented in chronological order of exams ...
  • Hooker, Sascha K.; Fahlman, Andreas; Moore, Michael J.; Aguilar De Soto, Natacha; Bernaldo de Quiros, Yara; Brubakk, A. O.; Costa, Daniel P.; Costidis, Alex M.; Dennison, S.; Falke, K. J.; Fernandez, A.; Ferrigno, Massimo; Fitz-Clarke, J. R.; Garner, M. M.; Houser, Dorian S.; Jepson, Paul D.; Ketten, Darlene R.; Kvadsheim, P. H.; Madsen, Peter T.; Pollock, N. W.; Rotstein, David S.; Rowles, Teresa K.; Simmons, S. E.; Van Bonn, W.; Weathersby, P. K.; Weise, M. J.; Williams, T. M.; Tyack, Peter L. (Royal Society, 2011-12-21)
    Decompression sickness (DCS; ‘the bends’) is a disease associated with gas uptake at pressure. The basic pathology and cause are relatively well known to human divers. Breath-hold diving marine mammals were thought to be ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Li, Songhai; Ketten, Darlene R.; Wang, Kexiong; Wang, Ding (Company of Biologists, 2013-10-18)
    How an animal receives sound may influence its use of sound. While ‘jaw hearing’ is well supported for odontocetes, work examining how sound is received across the head has been limited to a few representative species. The ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R.; Montie, Eric W. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-01)
    This section provides an introduction to biomedical imaging techniques and guidelines for diagnostic imaging of marine mammals to assist with both live examination and necropsy procedures. The procedures described are ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R.; Cramer, Scott R.; Arruda, Julie (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-01)
    This chapter is intended as an instructional guide for the removal, fixation and preservation of auditory system tissues of marine mammals. Each section describes procedures for a major ear type for marine mammals. The ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Hanlon, Roger T.; Madsen, Peter T.; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Jakob; Ketten, Darlene R.; Nachtigall, Paul E. (2010-07)
    Hearing is a primary sense in many marine animals and we now have a reasonable understanding of what stimuli generate clear responses, the frequency range of sensitivity, expected threshold values and mecha-nisms of sound ...
  • Foote, Kenneth G.; Hastings, Mardi C.; Ketten, Darlene R.; Lin, Ying-Tsong; Reidenberg, Joy S.; Rye, Kent (Acoustical Society of America, 2012-02)
    Potential physical effects of sonar transmissions on marine mammals were investigated by measuring pressure fields induced in a 119-kg, 211-cm-long, young adult male common dolphin (Delphinus delphis) cadaver. The specimen ...
  • Fontanella, Janet E.; Fish, Frank E.; Rybczynski, Natalia; Nweeia, Martin T.; Ketten, Darlene R. (2010-09-03)
    Cetaceans (whales, porpoises, and dolphins) use only their flukes for propulsion. Flukes are distally located extensions of the tail, and from a biomechanical standpoint, function as a pair of wings (Vogel 1994). Flukes ...
