Importance of Binaural Hearing

Paul Avan, Fabrice Giraudet, B�la B�ki
2015 Audiology & neuro-otology  
When hearing losses are too asymmetric, the patients face a situation in which the monaural exploitation of sound messages significantly lessens their performance compared to what it should be in a binaural  ...  An essential task for the central auditory pathways is to parse the auditory messages sent by the two cochleae into auditory objects, the segregation and localisation of which constitute an important means  ...  and competing sounds (noise) get spatially separated, a spatial release from masking emerges.  ...

Elaine Hoi Ning Ng, Mary Rudner, Thomas Lunner, Jerker Rönnberg
2013 Speech Language and Hearing  
To measure self-report hearing aid outcome, the International Outcome Inventory -Hearing Aids (IOI-HA) and the Speech, Spatial and Qualities of Hearing Scale (SSQ) were employed.  ...  A sentence-final word identification and recall (SWIR) test was used to investigate how hearing aid use may relate to experienced explicit cognitive processing.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Michael Syskind Pedersen and Ulrik Kjems from Oticon A/S, Smørum, Denmark, for their contribution of ideas regarding the noise reduction signal processing  ...

Precedence based speech segregation in bilateral cochlear implant users

Shaikat Hossain, Vahid Montazeri, Peter F. Assmann, Ruth Y. Litovsky
2015 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
In addition to facilitating sound localization, the PE can play an important role in spatial unmasking of speech.  ...  These findings suggest that envelope extraction in itself may not lead to a breakdown of the PE benefits, and that other factors may play a role.  ...  Acknowledgments This publication is dedicated to the memory of Professor Philipos Loizou.  ...

An algorithm to improve speech recognition in noise for hearing-impaired listeners

Eric W. Healy, Sarah E. Yoho, Yuxuan Wang, DeLiang Wang
2013 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
Successful development of such an algorithm is especially important for hearing-impaired (HI) listeners, given their particular difficulty in noisy backgrounds.  ...  Unlike the ideal binary mask, which requires prior knowledge of the premixed signals, the masks used to segregate speech from noise in the current study were estimated by training the algorithm on speech  ...  R01 DC012048 to D.L.W.) and from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research to D.L.W.) and an STTR subcontract from Kuzer (to D.L.W.).  ...

James W. Dias, Carolyn M. McClaskey, Mark A. Eckert, Jens H. Jensen, Kelly C. Harris
2020 NeuroImage  
Similarly, animal and human clinical studies suggest that the corpus callosum plays a role in the cross-hemispheric integration of auditory spatial information important for spatial localization and attention  ...  Higher right arcuate and callosal fractional anisotropy (FA) predicted better segregation and identification of spatially cued speech across younger and older listeners.  ...  Declaration of interests: None Age and Auditory Spatial Processing  ...

Effects of sensorineural hearing loss on cortical synchronization to competing speech during selective attention

Søren A. Fuglsang, Jonatan Märcher-Rørsted, Torsten Dau, Jens Hjortkjær
2020 Journal of Neuroscience  
Older listeners with age-related sensorineural hearing loss (presbycusis) often struggle to understand speech in such situations, even when wearing a hearing aid.  ...  Yet, it is unclear whether a peripheral hearing loss degrades the attentional modulation of cortical speech tracking.  ...  This 85 problem is not always mitigated by amplification of the sounds arriving at the ears, as seen 86 by the fact that many hearing aid users continue to experience substantial difficulties In situations  ...

Kevin Chi Pun Yuen, Xin Yue Qiu, Hong Yu Mou, Xin Xi, Edward C. Killan
2019 PLoS ONE  
Spatial release of masking (SRM) is a measure of an individual's ability to perform speech-noise segregation, which is usually quantified by the extent of improvement of the individual's speech recognition  ...  performance when the noise is switched from a spatially co-located position (e.g., speech and noise both presented from the front) to a spatially separated position (e.g., speech presented from the front  ...  We are very thankful to all test participants and their families for their valuable contributions and enthusiastic participations in this project.  ...

Indeed, a growing corpus of research suggests that auditory input could play an important role in body-related processing. Deafness could therefore disturb such processes.  ...  In the present review, we propose an overview of the current state of knowledge on the effects of deafness on body-related processing.  ...  Conflict of Interests The authors declare that there is no conflict of interest regarding the publication of this paper.  ...
