Speech Recognition with Primarily Temporal Cues
TLDR
Nearly perfect speech recognition was observed under conditions of greatly reduced spectral information; the presentation of a dynamic temporal pattern in only a few broad spectral regions is sufficient for the recognition of speech. Expand
Music Perception with Temporal Cues in Acoustic and Electric Hearing
TLDR
Cochlear-implant listeners performed normally in tempo discrimination, but significantly poorer than normal-hearing listeners in rhythmic pattern identification and melody recognition, indicating that the present cochlear implants provide sufficient spectral cues to support speech recognition in quiet, but they are not adequate to support music perception. Expand
Perceptual consequences of disrupted auditory nerve activity.
TLDR
Differences in perceptual consequences between auditory neuropathy and cochlear damage suggest the use of different neural codes in auditory perception: a suboptimal spike count code for intensity processing, a synchronized spike code for temporal processing, and a duplex code for frequency processing. Expand
Cochlear Implants: System Design, Integration, and Evaluation
TLDR
Issues beyond cochlear implants are discussed to address treatment options for the entire spectrum of hearing impairment as well as to use the co chlear implant as a model to design and evaluate other similar neural prostheses such as vestibular and retinal implants. Expand

TLDR
It is found that although AM from a limited number of spectral bands may be sufficient for speech recognition in quiet, FM significantly enhancesspeech recognition in noise, as well as speaker and tone recognition. Expand
Speech and melody recognition in binaurally combined acoustic and electric hearing.
TLDR
The present study utilizes the residual acoustic hearing in the nonimplanted ear in five cochlear implant users to elucidate the role of temporal fine structure at low frequencies in auditory perception and to test the hypothesis that combined acoustic and electric hearing produces better performance than either mode alone.

  • Trends in amplification
  • 1 March 2004
TLDR
A future landscape in amplification is presented that requires a unique, yet complementary, contribution from hearing aids, middle ear implants, and cochlear implants to achieve a total solution to the entire spectrum of hearing loss treatment and management. Expand
Temporal and speech processing deficits in auditory neuropathy.
TLDR
Psychophysical tests indicate that patients with auditory neuropathy' poor speech recognition is due to a severe impairment in their temporal processing abilities, and simulate this temporal processing impairment in normally hearing listeners and produce similar speech recognition deficits. Expand
Cochlear implant speech recognition with speech maskers.
TLDR
Evidence is interpreted for a significant role of informational masking and modulation interference in cochlear implant speech recognition with fluctuating maskers that may originate from increased target-masker similarity when spectral resolution is reduced. Expand
Temporal pitch in electric hearing

  • 1 December 2002
TLDR
It is suggested that 300 Hz is the upper boundary of the temporal code and that the absolute place information should be included in the present pitch models, and that future cochlear implants need to increase the number of independent electrodes to restore normal pitch range and resolution. Expand
