UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to examine loudness perception in individuals with hypophonia and Parkinson's disease. The participants included 17 individuals with hypophonia related to Parkinson's disease (PD) and 25 age-equivalent controls. The three loudness perception tasks included a magnitude estimation procedure involving a sentence spoken at 60, 65, 70, 75 and 80 dB SPL, an imitation task involving a sentence spoken at 60, 65, 70, 75 and 80 dB SPL, and a magnitude production… Expand

The Role of Auditory Feedback for Speech Intensity Regulation in Parkinson’s Disease
Hypophonia (low speech intensity) has been found to be the most common speech symptom experienced by individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Previous research suggests that, in the PD population,Expand
Loudness Perception of Pure Tones in Parkinson's Disease.
TLDR
No difference was found in loudness growth slopes in response to externally generated tones in PD, in contrast with the findings of previous studies of self-generated speech and externally presented speech. Expand
Speech production and sensory impairment in mild Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
This study investigates auditory and somatosensory acuity and their association to speech in PD, using /s/ and /ʃ/ as speech targets and 10 adults with mild PD and ten age- and gender-matched healthy participants performed three tasks. Expand
The Relationship Between Speech Production and Speech Perception Deficits in Parkinson's Disease.
TLDR
Auditory perceptual deficits may influence speech production in patients with Parkinson's disease and the present results suggest a disturbed auditory perception related to an automatic monitoring deficit in PD. Expand
Variables contributing to listener effort in speakers with Parkinson's disease
Reduced speech intensity or hypophonia is a common speech deficit observed in hypokinetic dysarthria associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD). The introduction of background noise is a particularlyExpand
Deficits in monitoring self-produced speech in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The finding indicates that auditory evoked activity is abnormally modulated during speech in Parkinson's patients who do not subjectively notice speech impairment, which could play a role in producing speech deficits in as the disease progresses. Expand
Deficits in monitoring self-produced speech in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The finding indicates that auditory evoked activity is abnormally modulated during speech in Parkinson’s patients who do not subjectively notice speech impairment, which could play a role in producing speech deficits in as the disease progresses. Expand
Is there an order of loss of sounds in speakers with Parkinson’s disease?
TLDR
Speech accuracy declined significantly in relation to overall motor impairment for labial and anterior lingual sounds but not for velar sounds, supporting the notion that a common underlying impairment of movement downscaling affects all sounds similarly and simultaneously in PD from the start. Expand
The Relationship Between Speech Perceptual Discrimination and Speech Production in Parkinson's Disease.
TLDR
The findings suggest perceptual processing differences associated with acoustic parameters of fundamental frequency and 1st formant perturbations in PD may reflect a combination of sensory and motor mechanisms that are differentially influenced by basal ganglia dysfunction. Expand
Acoustic Intensity and Speech Breathing Kinematics in a Patient with Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
While previous literature suggests that people with PD can manipulate intensity when cued as a result of kinematic modulations for speech breathing, the current study does not support these findings for this one patient, and previously reported differences between tidal and speech breathing were supported.

TLDR
About one third to one half of intelligibility improvement with loud speech could be attributed to increases in audibility or signal-to-noise ratio, so factors other than increased intensity must be partly responsible for the loud speech benefit. Expand
Tone discrimination as a window into acoustic perceptual deficits in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that persons with PD show a reduced ability to notice change in frequency and amplitude as compared to normal older adults, and this findings implicate a frontal-striatal contribution to auditory perception. Expand
Volume perception in Parkinsonian speech
TLDR
It was found that there was less of a difference between patients' production and perception of speech volume compared with that of the control subjects, and patients overestimated the volume of their speech during both reading and conversation. Expand
Vocal Responses to Perturbations in Voice Auditory Feedback in Individuals with Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that abnormal voice control in individuals with PD may be related to dysfunctional mechanisms of error detection or correction in sensory feedback processing. Expand
Emotional speech in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
It is suggested that alterations of emotional processing contribute to speech changes in PD, especially regarding emotional prosody, in addition to motor impairment. Expand
Impaired Perception of Vocal Emotions in Parkinson's Disease: Influence of Speech Time Processing and Executive Functioning
TLDR
The findings imply that working memory dysfunctions and perception of emotional prosody are not independent in PD, and patients with PD show impairments in processing of speech rate information. Expand
Rate and loudness manipulations in dysarthria: acoustic and perceptual findings.
TLDR
Intelligibility estimates for speakers with dysarthria, however, were not strongly related to acoustic measures of supraglottal behavior, and hypotheses for future treatment studies are discussed. Expand
Sensorimotor control of vocal pitch production in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The results showed that Cantonese individuals with PD produced significantly larger magnitudes of vocal compensation for pitch perturbations than healthy participants, and both groups showed systematic changes in compensation magnitude as a function of perturbation size and direction. Expand
Perception of Speech by Individuals with Parkinson's Disease: A Review
TLDR
These studies confirm that Parkinson's disease specifically impairs patients' perception of verbal emotions, and explanations of the nature and causes of this perceptual deficit are still limited. Expand
Sensorimotor adaptation of speech in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The patients with PD exhibited adaptation to the induced sensory error; however, the degree of adaptation was reduced compared with healthy, age‐matched control participants, consistent with reduced gain in the sensorimotor system for speech and with previous studies demonstrating limitations in the adaptation of limb movements after changes in visual feedback.
