The aim of the present study was to investigate the consequences of chronic otitis media on inner ear function. Retrospective analysis of conventional pure-tone audiometry tests was carried out on 344 patients who were scheduled for surgical treatment of unilateral chronic otitis media without...
Speech recognition and cognitive functions important for speech understanding were evaluated by objective measures and by scores of perceived effort, with and without hearing aids. The tests were performed in silence, and with background conditions of speech spectrum random noise and ordinary...
The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors for Severe Tinnitus Suffering (STS) and to describe the results from psychiatric diagnostic interviews of STS positive and STS negative patients. Consecutive tinnitus patients (n = 127) completed the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) and the...
The objective of the study was to compare the widths of forward masking profiles in subjects implanted with the Nucleus® 24 Contour™ or straight electrode array. The Contour array is typically positioned closer to the modiolus than the straight array. Subjects were fourteen postlingually...
Some hearing-impaired subjects report pure tones as sounding highly distorted and noise-like. We assessed whether such reports indicate that the tone frequency falls inside a dead region (DR). Nine hearing-impaired and four normally hearing subjects rated pure tones on a scale from 1 to 7, where...
This study assessed the effects of stimulus misidentification and memory processing errors on immediate memory span in 25 normal-hearing adults exposed to degraded auditory input simulating signals provided by a cochlear implant. The identification accuracy of degraded digits in isolation was...
Presented are results relevant to extending the utility of the auditory steady-state response (ASSR) in threshold estimation at high-frequency carriers and to the accuracy of thresholds estimated using modulation frequencies near 40 versus 80 Hz. Initially, efforts were directed at confirming...
