The aim of this study was to test for differences between normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners regarding two fundamental aspects of intensity perception: loudness integration and loudness summation. Loudness functions for three different stimuli were measured using categorical loudness scaling in 8 normal-hearing and 12 hearing-impaired subjects. The results indicated that temporal loudness integration, defined as the difference in SPL between 16.25-ms and 300-ms noise bursts of equal… CONTINUE READING
