The amplitude-modulation following response (AMFR) is a steady-state auditory response which may be an objective measure of intensity discrimination. Aged subjects with normal hearing have poorer intensity discrimination for low-frequency tones measured behaviorally, which would predict poorer AMFRs for low-frequency carriers. Experiment 1 was designed to(More)
This study measured the masking level difference (MLD) for both 500-Hz tone detection and spondee word recognition in two groups of listeners. One group consisted of 9 elderly listeners with normal audiometric sensitivity bilaterally, up to at least 2000 Hz. The other group was a control group of 10 young listeners with normal hearing. The intent was to(More)
Wave V of the auditory brainstem response was measured to two 50-ms broadband noise bursts separated by silent gaps of varied duration (4, 8, 32, or 64 ms) for younger and older adults with normal hearing. All subjects had measurable wave V responses to the first noise burst. However, for the second noise burst, three of eight older adults did not have(More)
The frequency-modulation following response (FMFR) is a steady-state evoked response which may be a neural correlate of frequency discrimination. Aged subjects with normal hearing have abnormal frequency discrimination for low carrier frequencies and thus it might be predicted that aged individuals would have reduced FMFR amplitudes compared to young(More)
