In order to be able to compare cochlear-implanted children to their normal hearing peers, normative growth curves were designed. Furthermore it was of interest how the(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the discrimination of two isolated spectral timbre cues, spectral centroid (Fc) and spectral irregularity (spIrr), in cochlear implant (CI) listeners. To examine whether the perception of Fc and spIrr changes is related to the perception of loudness and pitch and the identification of musical instruments. METHODS Stimuli were(More)
OBJECTIVE The individual outcome after cochlear implantation in children with auditory synaptopathy/neuropathy (AS/AN) is difficult to predict. A tool for preoperative assessment would be helpful for counseling parents. This study evaluates the outcome after CI in children with AS/AN and with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), and correlates it with the(More)
PURPOSE The focus of this study was to examine the influence of fundamental frequency (F0) and vocal tract length (VTL) modifications on speaker gender recognition in cochlear implant (CI) recipients for different stimulus types. METHOD Single words and sentences were manipulated using isolated or combined F0 and VTL cues. Using an 11-point rating scale,(More)
