Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1048980
Description: This study investigated to what extent spatial release from masking (SRM) deficits in hearing-impaired adults may be related to reduced audibility of the test stimuli. Sixteen adults with sensorineura ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1247171
Description: In listening experiments that assess spatial hearing (e.g. localization) in the presence of background noise it is important to ensure audibility of the target stimulus. Target audibility could be eas ... More
