Disease relevance of Loudness Perception


High impact information on Loudness Perception

  • Furthermore, oxazepam had no substantial and systematic influence either on auditory selective attention or on loudness perception [3].
  • It is concluded that key properties of sensorineural hearing loss (altered loudness perception, reduced dynamic range, normal temporal properties but prolonged forward-masking effects) can effectively be modeled by incorporating a fast-acting expansion within the current processing model prior to the nonlinear adaptation stage [4].
  • The Contour Test appears to offer a viable approach to clinical measurement of loudness perception: It has good patient acceptance and combines fairly rapid administration with acceptable reliability [5].
  • A factor analysis identified seven components (speech understanding in demanding situations, speech/language abilities, general behavioural issues, reactions to questions and demands, discrimination of speech sounds, musical cues, loudness perception) underlying the contrasts between the two study populations [6].
