Consonant confusion matrices were obtained for four sets of CV and VC nonsense syllables presented both in quiet and in the presence of a masking noise. A sequential method of partitioning transmitted information for confusion matrices was developed and used to test the hypothesis that when the internal redundancy of feature systems is taken into account,(More)
It has been suggested for several years that reactions between ligands and cell surface receptors can be speeded up by nonspecific adsorption of the ligand to the cell surface followed by two-dimensional surface diffusion to the receptor, a mechanism referred to as "reduction-of-dimensionality" (RD) rate enhancement. Most of the theoretical treatments of(More)
Consonant confusion matrices were obtained from 22 outpatient listeners with sensorineural hearing loss for four sets of CV and VC nonsense syllables, presented monaurally at SRT + 40 DB. Testing was typically conducted for six hours on each of two separate days. Overall performance and patterns of confusions were stable over time. Analysis of the matrices(More)
It has been found that listeners with sensorineural hearing loss who show similar patterns of consonant confusions also tend to have similar audiometric profiles. The present study determined whether normal listeners, presented with filtered speech, would produce consonant confusions similar to those previously reported for the hearing-impaired listener.(More)
To study when and where acetylcholine receptor (AChR) clusters appear on developing rat myotubes in primary culture, we have made time-lapse movies of total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) overlaid with schlieren transmitted light images. The receptors, including the ones newly incorporated into the membrane, were labeled with rhodamine(More)
