Ganesh, Gnanasenthil; Srinivasan, Venkata Subramanian; Krishnamurthi, Sarayu – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
In this brief article, the authors discuss Georg von Békésy's experiments showing the existence of traveling waves in the basilar membrane and that maximal displacement of the traveling wave was determined by the frequency of the sound. The place theory of hearing equates the basilar membrane to a frequency analyzer. The model described in this…

Walker, Elizabeth A.; Ambrose, Sophie E.; Oleson, Jacob; Moeller, Mary Pat – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2017
Purpose: This study investigates false belief (FB) understanding in children who are hard of hearing (CHH) compared with children with normal hearing (CNH) at ages 5 and 6 years and at 2nd grade. Research with this population has theoretical significance, given that the early auditory-linguistic experiences of CHH are less restricted compared with…

Beechey, Timothy; Buchholz, Jörg M.; Keidser, Gitte – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Objectives: This study investigates the hypothesis that hearing aid amplification reduces effort within conversation for both hearing aid wearers and their communication partners. Levels of effort, in the form of speech production modifications, required to maintain successful spoken communication in a range of acoustic environments are compared…

Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2017
Purpose: This review provides clinicians with an overview of recent findings relevant to understanding why listeners with normal hearing thresholds (NHTs) sometimes suffer from communication difficulties in noisy settings. Method: The results from neuroscience and psychoacoustics are reviewed. Results: In noisy settings, listeners focus their…

González-Cuenca, Antonia; Linero, María José – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Lies and irony are paradigmatic examples of nonliteral communication; many deaf children and even adults have difficulty in understanding them. The present study assessed the understanding of lies and irony in 96 adolescents living in Spain in urban settings (58 deaf participants, 38 hearing participants; 10-19 years old). We investigated whether…

Pascoe, Michelle; McLeod, Sharynne – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2016
The Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS) is a screening questionnaire that focuses on parents' perceptions of children's speech in different contexts. Originally developed in English, it has been translated into 60 languages and the validity and clinical utility of the scale has been documented in a range of countries. In South Africa, there are…

Wang, Yuanyuan; Shafto, Carissa L.; Houston, Derek M. – Developmental Science, 2018
Early auditory/language experience plays an important role in language development. In this study, we examined the effects of severe-to-profound hearing loss and subsequent cochlear implantation on the development of attention to speech in children with cochlear implants (CIs). In addition, we investigated the extent to which attention to speech…

Peterson, Candida C.; Wellman, Henry M. – British Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2009
We examined deaf and hearing children's progression of steps in theory of mind (ToM) development including their understanding of social pretending. Ninety-three children (33 deaf; 60 hearing) aged 3-13 years were tested on a set of six closely matched ToM tasks. Results showed that deaf children were delayed substantially behind hearing children…

Bashir, Sobia; Riaz, Muhammad Naveed; Shujaat, Jawwad Muhammad; Saqib, Tehmina – Bulletin of Education and Research, 2014
The present study purports to measure the school social behavior of hearing-impaired adolescents from public and private schools. It was hypothesized that hearing-impaired adolescents from private school are likely to have better school social behavior as compared to hearing-impaired adolescents from public school. For this purpose, School Social…
