Zhang, Xujin; Wu, Yunan Charles; Holt, Lori L. – Cognitive Science, 2021
Cognitive systems face a tension between stability and plasticity. The maintenance of long-term representations that reflect the global regularities of the environment is often at odds with pressure to flexibly adjust to short-term input regularities that may deviate from the norm. This tension is abundantly clear in speech communication when…

Niziolek, Caroline A.; Parrell, Benjamin – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: Speakers use auditory feedback to guide their speech output, although individuals differ in the magnitude of their compensatory response to perceived errors in feedback. Little is known about the factors that contribute to the compensatory response or how fixed or flexible they are within an individual. Here, we test whether manipulating…

Obergfell, Anja L.; Schabmann, Alfred; Schmidt, Barbara M. – Journal of Research in Reading, 2022
Prosodic sensitivity (PS) and phonological awareness (PA) are reading-related predictors in children, which themselves might be affected by basic auditory processing (BAP). This study proposes a new model that considers possible relations between all three variables and reading. Skilled adult reading is examined to exclude possible developmental…

Maryn, Youri; Zarowski, Andrzej; Loomans, Natalie – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: To better understand hypernasality (HN), we explored the relations between velopharyngeal orifice, auditory perception of HN, and acoustic-spectral measures in an in vivo within-subject design: (1) with a normally functioning velum as the control condition; and (2) with a temporarily paralyzed velum as the experimental condition. Method:…

Nápoles, Jessica; Geringer, John M.; Adams, Kari; Springer, D. Gregory – Journal of Research in Music Education, 2022
We examined how movement impacted listeners' perceptions of choral performances. Participants (N = 115; n = 60 nonmusic majors, n = 55 music majors) viewed excerpts of Moses Hogan's "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" under four conditions: good tone/expressive movement (GT/EM), good tone/static movement (GT/SM), poor tone/expressive…

Tomassi, Nicole E.; Weerathunge, Hasini R.; Cushman, Megan R.; Bohland, Jason W.; Stepp, Cara E. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2022
Purpose: Auditory feedback is thought to contribute to the online control of speech production. Yet, the standard method of estimating auditory feedback control (i.e., reflexive responses to auditory-motor perturbations), although sound, requires specialized instrumentation, meticulous calibration, unnatural tasks, and specific acoustic…

Rhee, Nari; Chen, Aoju; Kuang, Jianjing – Journal of Child Language, 2021
Using a semi-spontaneous speech corpus, we present evidence from computational modelling of tonal productions from Mandarin-speaking children (4- to 11-years old) and adults, showing that children exceed the adult-level tonal distinction at the age of 7 to 8 years using F0 cues, but do not reach the high adult-level distinction using spectral cues…

Lemos, Fabiana Aparecida; da Silva Nunes, Aryelly Dayane; de Souza Evangelista, Carolina Karla; Escera, Carles; Taveira, Karinna Veríssimo Meira; Balen, Sheila Andreoli – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to characterize parameters used for frequency-following response (FFR) acquisition in children up to 24 months of age through a systematic review. Method: The study was registered in PROSPERO and followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses' recommendations. Search was…

Drgas, Szymon; Blaszak, Magdalena; Przekoracka-Krawczyk, Anna – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: The acoustic source that is attended to by the listener in a mixture can be identified with a certain accuracy on the basis of their neural response recorded during listening, and various phenomena may be used to detect attention. For example, neural tracking (NT) and alpha power lateralization (APL) may be utilized in order to obtain…

Nagle, Charles L.; Baese-Berk, Melissa M. – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2022
One of the basic goals of second language (L2) speech research is to understand the perception-production link, or the relationship between L2 speech perception and L2 speech production. Although many studies have examined the link, they have done so with strikingly different conceptual foci and methods. Even studies that appear to use similar…

Centanni, T. M.; Beach, S. D.; Ozernov-Palchik, O.; May, S.; Pantazis, D.; Gabrieli, J. D. E. – Annals of Dyslexia, 2022
Developmental dyslexia is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that is associated with alterations in the behavioral and neural processing of speech sounds, but the scope and nature of that association is uncertain. It has been proposed that more variable auditory processing could underlie some of the core deficits in this disorder. In the current…

Goodwin, Corina; Carrigan, Emily; Walker, Kristin; Coppola, Marie – Child Development, 2022
Much research has found disrupted executive functioning (EF) in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children; while some theories emphasize the role of auditory deprivation, others posit delayed language experience as the primary cause. This study investigated the role of language and auditory experience in parent-reported EF for 123 preschool-aged…

Schulz, S. E.; Stevenson, R. A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2022
Sensory issues are highly prevalent in autism and previous findings support a relationship between questionnaires of sensitivity and autistic symptoms and traits, whereas studies that examine this relationship through behavioural assessments of sensitivity are less consistent. The current study explores these differences and suggests that…

Geringer, John M.; Bugaj, Kasia; Geringer, Katie A. – String Research Journal, 2021
This report is a summary of two studies. In the first, we compared examples of Irish fiddle performances with Western classical violin performances. Acoustical analyses showed that both classical examples produced average spectral centroids higher in frequency, higher harmonic to noise ratios, more use of vibrato, more disjunct intervals, and less…

Sparreboom, Marloes; Ausili, Sebastián; Agterberg, Martijn J. H.; Mylanus, Emmanuel A. M. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2021
Purpose: This study aimed to gain more insight into the primary auditory abilities of children with significant residual hearing in order to improve decision making when choosing between bimodal fitting or sequential bilateral cochlear implantation. Method: Sound localization abilities, spatial release of masking, and fundamental frequency…
