The primary goal of this project was to compare the performance of younger and older listeners on a number of psychophysical measures thought to be influenced by nonlinear cochlear processing. Younger (mean of 25.6 years) and older (mean of 63.8 years) listeners with normal hearing were matched (within 5 dB) according to their quiet thresholds at the two test frequencies of 1200 and 2400 Hz. They were similarly matched at the adjacent octave frequencies of 600 and 4800 Hz (within 5 dB at one… CONTINUE READING
