Sources of Age-Related Recognition Difficulty for Time-Compressed Speech
- Comparing Recognition of Distorted Speech Using an Equivalent Signal*to*Noise Ratio Index. Gordon-Salant, Sandra; Fitzgibbons, Peter J. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun95, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p706
Presents a comparison of speech recognition performance in noise of young and elderly listeners with and without hearing loss. Use of an equivalent signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio index in the study; Results showing that increased age produces a reduction in the functional S/N ratio.

- Aging and Visual Counting. Li, Roger W.; MacKeben, Manfred; Chat, Sandy W.; Kumar, Maya; Ngo, Charlie; Levi, Dennis M. // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 10, p1
Background: Much previous work on how normal aging affects visual enumeration has been focused on the response time required to enumerate, with unlimited stimulus duration. There is a fundamental question, not yet addressed, of how many visual items the aging visual system can enumerate in a...

- A Longitudinal Study in Adults With Sequential Bilateral Cochlear Implants: Time Course for Individual Ear and Bilateral Performance. Reeder, Ruth M.; Firszt, Jill B.; Holden, Laura K.; Strube, Michael J. // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2014, Vol. 57 Issue 3, p1108
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the rate of progress in the 2nd implanted ear as it relates to the 1st implanted ear and to bilateral performance in adult sequential cochlear implant recipients. In addition, this study aimed to identify factors that contribute to patient...

- Psychophysical evidence in support of the auditory numbers test. Formby, C.; Burton, J.T. // Volta Review;Spring94, Vol. 96 Issue 2, p151
Examines perception of temporal envelope and spectral clues in hearing-impaired listeners with known Auditory Numbers Test (ANT) scores. Function of ANT, a speech perception measure devised by N. Erber; Measurement of amplitude modulation (AM) detection thresholds at modulation frequencies where...
- Modulation detection interference (MDI) in listeners with cochlear hearing loss. Grose, John H.; Hall III, Joseph W. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Jun94, Vol. 37 Issue 3, p680
Compares Modulation Detection Interference (MDI) in listeners with cochlear hearing loss and in listeners with normal hearing. MDI as the phenomenon wherein the detection of modulation at one frequency deteriorates if modulation exists simultaneously at another frequency; Extent of MDI...
