Talker Separation and Sequential Stream Segregation in Listeners With Hearing Loss: Patterns Associated With Talker Gender
- Speech signals used to evaluate functional status of the auditory system. Wilson, Richar H.; McArdle, Rachel // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;Jul/Aug2005 Supplement 2, Vol. 42, p79
This review presents a brief history of the evolution of speech audiometry from the 1800s to present day. The two-component aspect of hearing loss (audibility and distortion), which was formalized into a framework in past literature, is presented in the context of speech recognition. The...
- Development of a Speech-in-Multitalker-Babble Paradigm to Assess Word-Recognition Performance. Wilson, Richard H. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Nov2003, Vol. 14 Issue 9, p453
A simple word-recognition task in multitalker babble for clinic use was developed in the course of four experiments involving listeners with normal hearing and listeners with hearing loss. In Experiments I and 2, psychometric functions for the individual NU No. 6 words from Lists 2, 3, and 4...
- Simulated Conductive Hearing Loss in Children. Penn, Terrey Oliver; Grantham, D. Wesley; Gravel, Judith S. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Apr2004, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p300
Otitis media with effusion (OME) often results in hearing loss for children with the condition. In order to provide appropriate and effective audiologic management, it is important to understand the impact of OME on speech recognition ability when hearing loss is present. This study examined the...
- Hearing loss and aging: New research findings and clinical implications. Gordon-Salant, Sandra // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;Jul/Aug2005 Supplement 2, Vol. 42, p9
This review provides an overview of recent research that addressed hearing loss and auditory processing problems among elderly people. It focuses on research from the University of Maryland on problems in auditory temporal processing by elderly listeners as assessed in speech perception...
- The Role of Sequential Stream Segregation and Frequency Selectivity in the Perception of Simultaneous Sentences by Listeners With Sensorineural Hearing Loss. Mackersie, Carol L.; Prida, Tammy L.; Stiles, Derek // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Feb2001, Vol. 44 Issue 1, p19
Presents information on a study which determined the role of frequency selectivity and sequential stream segregation in the perception of simultaneous sentences by listeners with sensorineural hearing loss. Methodology of the study; Results and discussion on the study; Conclusions.
- Sudden hearing loss. Vaughan, John C. // Volta Review;Nov97, Vol. 99 Issue 5, p171
Provides information pertaining to sudden hearing loss. Etiology; Clinical manifestations; Diagnostic evaluations; Treatment options; Difficulty of adequately studying the disease with statistical validity.
- Modern Lifestyles Damage Ears. // USA Today Magazine;Feb89, Vol. 117 Issue 2525, p9
Focuses on the commonness of hearing loss at younger ages. Events which can trigger gradual loss of hearing; Effect of aging on hearing; Approaches for preventing hearing loss.
- PSEUDOHYPACUSIS IN CHILDHOOD: DIAGNOSTIC APPROACH. Kontorinis, Georgos // Capsula Eburnea;2009, Vol. 4, p39
Pseudohypacusis is the discrepancy between hearing thresholds being obtained with subjective and objective audilogical tests. Although more frequent in adults, pseudohypacusis should always be considered as a possible etiology of hearing loss in children. A specific protocol for the evaluation...
- Introduction -- an evaluation of the diagnosis and management of hearing loss during the past 50 years. Epstein, Stephen // Volta Review;Nov97, Vol. 99 Issue 5, pV
Evaluates the diagnosis and management of hearing loss in children and adults from the 1920s to the 1990s. Advances in technology; Creation of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders in October 1988; Role of cytomegalovirus as a common cause of hearing loss in children.
