This study investigated factors that affect the development of positive peer relationships among deaf children with cochlear implants. Ten 5- to 6-year-old deaf children with implants were observed under conditions varying peer context difficulty in a Peer Entry task. Results revealed better outcomes for deaf children interacting in one-on-one situations(More)

However, little is known about its effect on children's ability to socialize with hearing peers. METHODS Using a standardized psychological measure completed by parents and a longitudinal design, this study examined the development of(More)
Possible age-related effects of speech competition in one ear on the late auditory (LAEP) and P300 event-related potentials recorded at the other ear were investigated with female volunteers. In each of the age categories of 20 to 34, 35 to 49, 50 to 64, and 65 to 80 years, 10 subjects were tested. While contralateral speech competition produced no(More)
In the preceding report in this journal, the authors presented evidence for an electrophysiologic correlate of impaired binaural processing or attention in elderly listeners. In the present experiment, the subjects tested in the earlier study were administered a Dichotic Digits Recognition task in which they were required, in separate sessions, to repeat(More)
When restriction sites are modeled by a random process, the number of solutions to the double-digest problem (DDP) increases exponentially with the length of the DNA molecule. Cassette transformations define equivalence classes on the set of solutions to the DDP for the case of no coincident cut sites. Pevzner (1994) completely characterized the solutions(More)
