For almost four decades, we and our colleagues and students have conducted and published research aimed at gaining a broader understanding of how temporal and spectral aspects of physical waveforms arriving at the ears are processed by the auditory system and how the resulting information is utilised to detect, discriminate and localise sounds. While contribution of fundamental empirical data has been primary, the enterprise has also focused on development, evaluation and extension of cross-correlation-based modelling approaches.
A binaural detection task that reveals deficits in listeners having ‘slight’ or ‘hidden’ hearing loss
The association of degraded binaural processing in adults with clinically defined ‘slight’ or ‘hidden’ high frequency hearing loss is of great interest to clinicians if it can be measured. Leslie R Bernstein and Constantine Trahiotis share their findings in measurements...
