Speech Perception for Children With Cochlear Implants

2014-08-27 03:16:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether speech recognition in noise can be improved by the addition of a special listening program to the sound processor. Thus we propose to assess speech perception in noise for pediatric cochlear implant patients using both their everyday listening program as well an ASC program.

Description

The purpose of this study is to determine whether speech recognition in noise can be improved by the addition of a special listening program to the sound processor. Thus we propose to assess speech perception in noise for pediatric cochlear implant patients using both their everyday listening program as well an ASC program.

You will be asked to listen to sentences in quiet and in noise and repeat the sentences. You will be seated in a comfortable chair inside the sound booth with 8 loudspeakers placed in a circular pattern around your head. We will test your sentence recognition abilities in your listening program as well as in the new listening program. The sentences and noise will be presented through loudspeakers at levels typically encountered in everyday communication environments. Your participation would involve approximately 20 minutes of testing plus 10 minutes to add the new listening program to their processor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.

Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.

Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.

Hearing loss without a physical basis. Often observed in patients with psychological or behavioral disorders.

Hearing loss in frequencies above 1000 hertz.
