Auditory Performance Characteristics of the Computerized Revised Token Test (CRTT)
- TARGET SPEECH EXTRACTION IN COCKTAIL PARTY BY COMBINING BEAMFORMING AND BLIND SOURCE SEPARATION. Lin Wang; Heping Ding; Fuliang Yin // Acoustics Australia;Aug2011, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p64
Due to the ambient noise, interferences, reverberation, and the speakers moving and talking concurrently, it is a challenge to extract a target speech in a real cocktail-party environment. Emulating human auditory systems, this paper proposes a two-stage target speech extraction method which...
- Robust sound classification through the representation of similarity using response fields derived from stimuli during early experience. Coath, Martin; Denham, Susan L. // Biological Cybernetics;Jul2005, Vol. 93 Issue 1, p22
Models of auditory processing, particularly of speech, face many difficulties. Included in these are variability among speakers, variability in speech rate, and robustness to moderate distortions such as time compression. We constructed a system based on ensembles of feature detectors derived...
- Age Differences in Identifying Words in Synthetic Speech. Roring, Roy W.; Hines, Franklin G.; Charness, Neil // Human Factors;Feb2007, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p25
Objectives: We investigated whether context or different speech rates could improve older adult performance on identification of synthetically generated words. Background: Synthetic speech systems can potentially improve the daily functioning of older adults. However, research must determine...
- Dynamics of multifrequency coordination using parametric driving: theory and experiment. Assisi, Collins G.; Jirsa, Viktor K.; Kelso, J. A. Scott // Biological Cybernetics;Jul2005, Vol. 93 Issue 1, p6
The coupling of movement behavior and environmental signals has been extensively studied within the domain of rhythmic coordination tasks. However, in contrast to most traditional coordination studies, here we drive the coupled sensorimotor system far beyond the frequency regime in which these...
- A comparison of word-recognition abilities assessed with digit pairs and digit triplets in multitalker babble. Wilson, Richard H. // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;Jul/Aug2005, Vol. 42 Issue 4, preceding p1
The article presents a study that compares recognition performances on digit pairs and digit triplets at various signal-to-babble ratios in multitalker babble. Both listeners with normal hearing and listeners with hearing loss were studied. Multitalker babble was selected as the background noise...
- Sounds All Around. Silverstein, Alvin; Silverstein, Virginia; Nunn, Laura Silverstein // Hearing (Senses & Sensors);2001, p8
This chapter describes the sense of hearing. All living things have senses. They use their sensors to gather information from their environment. However, the human senses is far from the best nature has evolved. Some animals have very sensitive senses. Because of this, humans developed...
- Sound I.D. // Scholastic SuperScience;Jan1999, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p14
Presents an activity program to help children understand the sense of hearing. Identification of the sound of footsteps.
- The Ears Have It. // Current Health 2;Feb2010, Vol. 36 Issue 6, p31
The article offers suggestions to maintain a good hearing ability.
- phonism. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1775
A definition of the term "phonism," which refers to an auditory sensation that occurs when another sense is stimulated, is presented.
