Pitch-related pattern detection and real-life listening
What determines our ability to understand speech in noisy situations?
The difficulty to understand people in noisy environments is a common complaint of those attending auditory clinics, especially as we age and even when hearing is normal. This can cause social isolation and a lower quality of life, among other issues. Understanding what determines our ability to extract speech from a noisy background will help us find solutions to this prevalent problem.
In this study, we focus on how a person's ability to perceive pitch patterns relates to tracking sound in a noisy environment. The study looks into various aspects of hearing: the peripheral hearing function, central sound segregation, musicality, as well as real-life listening.
