It has been shown that frequency-place mismatch has detrimental effects on English speech recognition. The present study investigated the effects of mismatched spectral distribution of envelopes on Mandarin Chinese tone recognition using a noise-excited vocoder. In Experiment 1, speech samples were processed to simulate a cochlear implant with various insertion depths. The carrier bands were shifted basally relative to the analysis bands by 1-7 mm in the cochlea. Nine normal-hearing Mandarin… CONTINUE READING
