Perceptual grouping of tone sequences by normally hearing and hearing-impaired listeners.


This study examined the perceptual grouping of rapid tone sequences for listeners with normal hearing and listeners with unilateral and bilateral cochlear hearing loss. The sequence ABA-ABA- was used, where A and B represent sinusoidal tones bursts (10-ms rise/fall, 80-ms steady state, 20-ms interval between tones) and - represents a silent interval of 120… (More)
