Classon, Elisabet; Rudner, Mary; Ronnberg, Jerker – Journal of Communication Disorders, 2013
Acquired hearing impairment is associated with gradually declining phonological representations. According to the Ease of Language Understanding (ELU) model, poorly defined representations lead to mismatch in phonologically challenging tasks. To resolve the mismatch, reliance on working memory capacity (WMC) increases. This study investigated…
