Nick Clark

The contribution of peripheral efferent activity to the perception of speech in noise in normal and impaired hearing

Computer modelling is used to assess the benefits of the auditory efferent system when listening to speech in noise using automatic speech recognition


Tim Juergens

Time interval representations of a consonant-vowel syllable in computer models of normal and hearing-impaired listeners

A computer model of both normal and impaired hearing is used to evaluate the possibility that speech formants are coded in terms of periodicity


Wendy Lecluyse

Evaluation of a new type of hearing aid

A hearing aid designed on the basis of a model of normal human hearing is described and explained.


Ray Meddis

A computer model of the acoustic reflex and medial olivocochlear reflex

A computer model of the auditory periphery incorporating the acoustic reflex and the medial olivo-cochlear efferent system


Christine Tan

Cochlear function in hearing-impaired people with tinnitus

Some people with a hearing impairment have tinnitus, others do not.  Why is this?
