Congenital amusia is a neurodevelopmental disorder of musical processing that also impacts subtle aspects of speech processing. It remains debated at what stage(s) of auditory processing deficits in amusia arise. In this study, we investigated whether amusia originates from impaired subcortical encoding of speech (in quiet and noise) and musical sounds in(More)
Across time, languages undergo changes in phonetic, syntactic, and semantic dimensions. Social, cognitive, and cultural factors contribute to sound change, a phenomenon in which the phonetics of a language undergo changes over time. Individuals who misperceive and produce speech in a slightly divergent manner (called innovators) contribute to variability in(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of auditory processing disorder in school-age children has been documented (Katz and Wilde, 1985; Chermak and Musiek, 1997; Jerger and Musiek, 2000; Muthuselvi and Yathiraj, 2009). In order to identify these children early, there is a need for a screening test that is not very time-consuming. PURPOSE The present study aimed to(More)
OBJECTIVES The present study focussed on validating the Screening Test for Auditory Processing (STAP) that contains four subsections: speech-in-noise, dichotic consonant vowel, gap detection and auditory memory. The sensitivity and specificity were ascertained by comparing the results of the screening test with that of diagnostic tests for auditory(More)
