Although in a number of experiments noise-band vocoders have been shown to provide acoustic models for speech perception in cochlear implants (CI), the present study assesses in four experiments whether and under what limitations noise-band vocoders can be used as an acoustic model for pitch perception in CI. The first two experiments examine the effect of spectral smearing on simulated electrode discrimination and fundamental frequency (FO) discrimination. The third experiment assesses the… CONTINUE READING
