Increasing the ecological validity of speech intelligibility measures using conversational speech and comprehension-targeted questions

Martha M. Shiell1, Sergi Rotger-Griful1, Martin Skoglund1,2, Johannes Zaar1,3, Gitte Keidser11Eriksholm Research Centre, Oticon A/S, DK-3070 Snekkersten, Denmark2Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden3Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, Kgs.

Modelling changes in the process of audiovisual integration

Samuel Smith1,2, Christian J. Sumner1, Thom Baguley1, Paula C. Stacey11NTU Psychology, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, U.K.2Hearing Sciences, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, U.K. The comprehension of speech, whether for normal hearing or aided, is often supplemented by watching a talker’s facial movements. How do auditory and visual cues combine multiple sources of information to provide a …

Measuring human hearing with functional near-infrared spectroscopy: Test-retest reliability

Anaïs Bouchet1,2,  Abigail A. Kressner1,2, Erik F. Kjærbøl2, Maaike Van Eeckhoutte1,21Hearing Systems Section, Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark2Copenhagen Hearing and Balance Center, Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) & Audiology Clinic, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a relatively recent imaging technique and presents many advantages for clinical …

Musical experience partially counteracts temporal speech processing deficits in putative mild cognitive impairment: A pilot study

Behavioral and neural correlates of intensity discrimination of masked tonal signals

Hyojin Kim1, Viktorija Ratkute1, Bastian Epp11Hearing Systems section, Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark Comodulated masking noise and interaural phase disparity (IPD) can enhance detection of masked signals. Such enhancement in detection performance, or masking release, can be quantified as decreased detection thresholds: comodulation masking release (CMR) and binaural masking level …

Tempo-dependent neural synchronization to different music features

Kristin Weineck1,2, Olivia Xin Wen1, Molly J. Henry21Research Group “Neural and Environmental Rhythms”, Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Frankfurt am Main, Germany2Institute for Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Frankfurt am Main, Germany Neural activity in the auditory system can synchronize to the rhythms of sounds, and successful synchronization improves perception. …

A probe into problems and life effects in auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder using the ICF classification

Gayathri Kalarikkal1, G. K. Jayasree1, Malavika Puthiyadam1 , Abdul Bahis, K. V. Nisha1 , Prashanth Prabhu1 1Department of Audiology, All India Institute of Speech and Hearing, Mysore, India Individuals with ANSD show multi-faceted ramifications of the disorder which spans many facets of life (emotional, personal and other health related issues) that are not readily apparent …

Individual variability in speech recognition with age: Isolating different aspects of sensorineural hearing loss

Sarineh Keshishzadeh1, Heleen Van Der Biest2, Sarah Verhulst11Dept. of Information Technology, Ghent University, 9000 Ghent, Belgium2Dept. of Rehabilitation Sciences–Audiology, Ghent University, 9000 Ghent, Belgium Even though age-induced cochlear synaptopathy (CS) has been demonstrated in rodent and human temporal bones, it remains challenging to determine whether this pathology causes speech intelligibility declines. Difficulties in studying the …

Investigating the role of high spontaneous rate fibers in cochlear synaptopathy

Pernille Holtegaard1, Mercedes C. Duvig1, Teresa M. C. Gallo1 , Bastian Epp11Hearing Systems Section, Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark, DK-2800, Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark ​Cochlear synaptopathy (CS) has been suggested to predominantly target low spontaneous rate (SR) fibers. The majority of research in CS hypothesize deficits at supra-threshold levels in accordance with this …
