Effects of age on speech understanding in normal hearing listeners: Relationship between the auditory efferent system and speech intelligibility in noise

Abstract

Human listeners are able to concentrate on listening to one voice amidst other conversations and background noise, but not all of the neural mechanisms for this process are understood. There is growing evidence in normal-hearing subjects that the medial olivocochlear (MOC) auditory efferent system is involved in the detection of signals in noise, such as… (More)
