The goal of this study was to identify specific neurocognitive deficits that are associated with older listeners' difficulty understanding rapid speech. Older listeners performed speech recognition tests comprised of time-compressed sentences with and without context, and on a neurocognitive battery aimed specifically at testing working memory, processing speed, and attention. A principle component analysis identified three main cognitive components as follows: a sequencing working memory (WM-S… CONTINUE READING
