Multi-band frequency compression for improving speech perception by listeners with moderate sensorineural hearing loss
In multi-band frequency compression, the speech spectrum is divided into a number of analysis bands, and the spectral samples in each band are compressed towards the band center by a constantExpand

Intra-Osseous Lipoma of the Talus: A Case Report
Intra-osseous lipomas are rare benign tumours. We report one such case in the talus of a 60-year-old man. The patient underwent curettage and bone grafting. At the 22-month follow-up, radiographs ofExpand

Perceptually balanced filter response for binaural dichotic presentation to reduce the effect of spectral masking
Earlier investigations show that the scheme of binaural dichotic presentation with spectral splitting of speech signal helps in reducing the effect of spectral masking for persons with moderateExpand

The effect of composition, electron irradiation and quenching on ionic conductivity in a new solid polymer electrolyte: (PEG)xNH4I
We have prepared, characterized and investigated a new PEG-2000 based solid polymer electrolyte (PEG)xNH4I. Ionic conductivity measurements have been made as a function of salt concentration as wellExpand
