The present study investigated the effects of decreased audibility of the speech sounds 'ba' and 'da' on the mismatch negativity (MMN). Audibility was altered by varying the intensity of the masking noise to be either 0 (no noise), 65, 70 or 75 dB speech perception level. Cortical event-related potentials were recorded while normal listeners (n=7) were instructed to ignore the stimuli. In a separate condition, subjects were asked to signal detection of the deviant stimulus by button-press. As… CONTINUE READING
