Speech Understanding by Cochlear Implant Patients in Complex Listening Environments

Michael Dorman
The following is a transcript of the presentation video, edited for clarity. I'm going to talk about speech understanding in simulations of complex environments by my implant patients. My disclosure slide says that the work is supported both by the NIDCD and cochlear implant companies who pay my staff salaries, ... Continue to Article >>

Understanding Speech in Complex Acoustic Environments

Gerald Kidd
The following is a transcript of the presentation video, edited for clarity. Thank you Karen, and thank you for inviting me here I appreciate it.

The following is a transcript of the presentation video, edited for clarity. Thank you very much to Karen for inviting me to present today. And I also received funding when I was a graduate student from many of the different ASHFoundation and ASHA awards, and so it's a real honor ... Continue to Article >>

How Aging Affects Speech Understanding in the Presence of Competing Speech

Karen Helfer
I'm Karen Helfer from the University of Massachusetts and today I'm going to be talking about aging and how aging affects speech understanding. The two talks we had this morning did a great job of setting the table and talking about attention and how neurological, electrophysiological changes affect attending to ... Continue to Article >>

I am delighted to be here and have this opportunity to share some of the research from my laboratory with you today. I first am told that ... Continue to Article >>

Translating Basic Science Findings in Cochlear Implant Research into Clinical Practice

Mario Svirsky
One of the cool things of my lab is that there are so many different people. There's a good number of engineers, a good number of audiologists, but we also interact with people with a background in computational linguistics or physiology, sometimes basic physiologists. The name of my lab is ... Continue to Article >>

Development and Mechanisms of Language Impairment in ASD: Parallels with other Language Disorders

Helen Tager-Flusberg
The following is a transcript of the presentation video, edited for clarity. The overview of my talk is I'll start by introducing Autism Spectrum Disorder and then drill down into, you know, two words about language and Autism. I'm then going to talk about studying high-risk infants in the first ... Continue to Article >>

Building a Consumer-Informed Research Program

Jacqueline Hinckley
What is consumer-informed research? The traditional idea of research is that it's investigator initiated. And so researchers, who may have differing levels of engagement in either clinical work or the community, decide on a topic, choose a research question, and pursue it. It's really all about the investigator choosing to ... Continue to Article >>

Broadening our Perspective on Speech Recognition in the Aging: Learning from “Peripheral” Disciplines to Inform Solutions

Karen Helfer
I think one continuing question, and one that we've had for a long time is, "Why do older people have difficulty understanding speech?" What exactly changes with age? Is it hearing loss? Is it attenuation from peripheral hearing loss? Is it something else going on in the cochlea? Is it ... Continue to Article >>

Impact of Cross-Linguistic Research in Studying Specific Language Impairment

Laurence B. Leonard
In recent, I can almost say recent decades now, I've been very active in cross-linguistic research. Initially I was focused on English-speaking children, and we really had a handle on what these children are like. There are some individual differences, of course. Somewhere along the line, I read something about ... Continue to Article >>
