    Noise affects one's hearing as well as balance mechanism. The hearing mechanism of the noise-exposed individuals has been extensively studied. However, in view of the poor research focus on the sacculo-collic reflexes, especially in this study area, the present study was undertaken to examine...

    Listeners were asked to detect amplitude modulation (AM) of a target (or signal) carrier that was presented in isolation or in the presence of an additional (masker) carrier. The signal was modulated at a rate of 10 Hz, and the masker was unmodulated or was modulated at a rate of 2, 10, or 40...

    Amplitude modulation following response (AMFR) is a promising tool for objective frequency-specific assessment of hearing thresholds in children. The stimulus generally used for AMFR recording (one amplitude-modulated carrier) activates only a small part of the basilar membrane. Therefore,...

    Background: Partial deafness (PD) is a condition in which normal hearing is preserved in the low frequency range, while severe to profound hearing loss is observed in the middle and high frequency ranges. The aim of this study was to assess the acoustic structure of the voice in children...

    Electromagnetic artifacts can occur when recording multiple auditory steady-state responses evoked by sinusoidally amplitude modulated (SAM) stimuli. High-intensity air-conducted stimuli evoked responses even when hearing was prevented by masking. Additionally, high-intensity bone-conducted...

  • Amplitude Modulation Detection by Listeners with Unilateral Dead Regions. Moore, Brian C. J.; Vinay // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Nov/Dec2009, Vol. 20 Issue 10, p597 

    Background: A dead region is a region in the cochlea where the inner hair cells and/or neurons are functioning very poorly, if at all. We have shown that, for people with sensorineural hearing loss, thresholds for detecting sinusoidal amplitude modulation (AM) of a sinusoidal carrier were lower...

    The ability to detect auditory signals from background noise may be enhanced by the addition of energy in frequency regions well removed from the frequency of the signal. However, it is important that this energy is amplitude-modulated in a coherent way across frequencies, i.e. comodulated. This...

    Sensitivity to complex pitch is notoriously poor in adults with cochlear implants (CIs), but it is unclear whether this is true for children with CIs. Many are implanted today at a very young age, and factors related to brain plasticity (age at implantation, duration of CI experience, and...

    Psychophysical and P300 (P3) thresholds and suprathreshold measures were obtained in 16 normal-hearing subjects. Subjects followed a classic oddball paradigm using 1000 (frequent) and 2000 Hz (rare) tones as stimuli. The P3 was obtained for all 16 subjects at or 5 dB above their behavioral...
