Effect of fundamental-frequency and sentence-onset differences on speech-identification performance of young and older adults in a competing-talker background.


This study investigated the benefits of differences between sentences in fundamental frequency (F0) and temporal onset for sentence pairs among listener groups differing in age and hearing sensitivity. Two experiments were completed with the primary difference between experiments being the way in which the stimuli were presented. Experiment 1 used blocked… (More)
