Gordon-Salant, Sandra; Fitzgibbons, Peter J.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n2 p423-31 Apr 1997
The influence of selected cognitive factors on age-related changes in speech recognition was examined by measuring the effects of recall task, speech rate, and availability of contextual cues on the recognition performance of 10 young listeners (ages 18-40) and 10 older listeners (ages 65-76). Hearing loss affected performance. (Author/CR)
