Many hearing-impaired listeners suffer from distorted auditory processing capabilities. This study examines which aspects of auditory coding (i.e., intensity, time, or frequency) are distorted and how this affects speech perception. The distortion-sensitivity model is used: The effect of distorted auditory coding of a speech signal is simulated by an(More)
The just-noticeable difference in intensity jnd(I) was measured for 1-kHz tones with a Gaussian-shaped envelope as a function of their spectro-temporal shape. The stimuli, with constant energy and a constant product of bandwidth and duration, ranged from a long-duration narrow-band "tone" to a short-duration broadband "click." The jnd(I) was measured in(More)
Hearing-impaired listeners are known to suffer from reduced speech intelligibility in noise, even if sounds are above their hearing thresholds. This study examined the possible contribution of reduced acuity of intensity coding to this problem. The "distortion-sensitivity model" was used: the effect of reduced acuity of auditory intensity coding on(More)
The problem of obtaining the retinal source distribution that generates the electroretinogram (ERG) from measured skin potentials is addressed. A realistic three-dimensional (3-D) volume conductor model of the head is constructed from magnetic resonance image (MRI) data sets. The skin potential distribution generated in this model by a dipole layer source(More)
