Temporal processing ability in the hearing impaired was investigated in a 2IFC gap-detection paradigm. The stimuli were digitally constructed 50-Hz-wide bands of noise centered at 250, 500, and 1000 Hz. On each trial, two 400-ms noise samples were paired, shaped at onset and offset, filtered, and presented in the quiet with and without a temporal gap. A(More)
Anti-HCV was tested in 77 uremic patients, 48 on hemodialysis (HD), 29 on CAPD, by immunoenzymatic 1st and 2nd generation assays (ELISA I, II) and 4-antigen (4-RIBA) immublotting. The investigation was extended to the staff (n = 29) and to HCV-positive patients' families (n = 30). The prevalence using 2nd generation tests was double (21%) that in 1st(More)
Forty-six hearing-impaired young adults were tested with a newly developed instrument that requires a discrimination response to assess viseme perception as a component of lipreading performance. Stimuli were videotaped sentences that differed on half of the trials from a captioned target sentence by one viseme embedded in the middle of the sentence.(More)
