Participants took part in two speech tests. In both tests, a model speaker produced vowel-consonant-vowels (VCVs) in which the initial vowel varied unpredictably in duration. In the simple response task, participants shadowed the initial vowel; when the model shifted to production of any of three CVs (/pa/, /ta/ or /ka/), participants produced a CV that(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish normative amplitude values for relative difference measurements of the middle latency response (MLR) in normal-hearing pediatrics and to determine if these measurements provided a significant reduction of within-group variability when compared to raw, absolute amplitude measures. A relative amplitude difference is defined in the(More)
Although the theoretical importance of perspective taking has long been recognized, surprisingly little work has documented the cognitions associated with attempts to imagine another's point of view. To explore this issue and to determine whether perspective taking increases the likelihood of self-related thoughts, two experiments were carried out. In the(More)
The present review summarizes historic and recent research which has investigated the role of the corpus callosum in dichotic processing within the context of audiology. Examination of performance by certain clinical groups, including split brain patients, multiple sclerosis cases, and other types of neurological lesions is included. Maturational, age(More)
The present review characterizes dual sensory impairment (DSI) as co-existing auditory and visual deficits in TBI that can be peripherally or centrally based. Current research investigating DSI in the military population, along with applicable research which focuses on unimodal deficits, is considered. Due to the heterogenous nature of TBI lesions, an(More)
PURPOSE To provide a commentary on "Auditory Processing Disorder and Auditory/Language Interventions: An Evidence-Based Systematic Review" by Fey et al. (2011). METHOD Examination of the conclusions drawn by Fey et al. (2011) in the context of the American Academy of Audiology (2010a, 2010b) and American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (2005a, 2005b,(More)
Organizing and finally assembling the chapters for this book has been one of life's more pleasurable education experiences for this editor. The impetus for the development of the book resides with the continuing far-sighted thinking of Dr. Sadanand Singh. He has been unflagging in helping the discipline of human communication sciences and disorders advance(More)
The Gaps-In-Noise (GIN) test is a new procedure used in the diagnosis of central auditory processing disorders. Performance on the GIN is recorded as approximate gap detection threshold and percent correct. In order to utilize the GIN test clinically, it is important to know how presentation level influences performance on the GIN. To this end, ten(More)
We tested the hypothesis that rapid shadowers imitate the articulatory gestures that structure acoustic speech signals-not just acoustic patterns in the signals themselves-overcoming highly practiced motor routines and phonological conditioning in the process. In a first experiment, acoustic evidence indicated that participants reproduced allophonic(More)
BACKGROUND Use of a competition stimuli (e.g., video) in clinical settings is a widespread practice, yet the effects of these stimuli on evoked potentials are not well understood. PURPOSE The present investigation acquired the click evoked auditory N1-P2 in quiet and in two types of competition: during presentation of an unrelated visual stimulus or(More)
