OBJECTIVE To determine the extent to which procedural variations affect pure-tone average-spondee threshold (PTA-SRT) agreement in pseudohypacusis, to propose a theoretical framework to account for threshold differences due to procedural variations, and to devise an effective screening test for identification of pseudohypacusis. DESIGN The subjects were normally hearing listeners who feigned a hearing loss. One experimental group received an ascending pure-tone (PT) technique combined with an… CONTINUE READING
