This monograph reviews the role played by TFS in masking, pitch perception, speech perception, and spatial hearing, and concludes that cues derived from TFS play an important role in all of these. Evidence is reviewed suggesting that cochlear hearing loss reduces the ability to use TFS cues. Also, the ability to use TFS declines with increasing age even when the audiogram remains normal. This provides a new dimension to the changes in hearing associated with aging, a topic that is currently of great interest in view of the increasing proportion of older people in the population.
The study of the role of TFS in auditory processing has been a hot topic in recent years. While there have been many research papers on this topic in specialized journals, there has been no overall review that pulls together the different research findings and presents and interprets them within a coherent framework. This monograph fills this gap.Contents:Processing of Sound in the Auditory System and Neural Representation of Temporal Fine StructureThe Role of TFS in MaskingThe Role of TFS in Pitch PerceptionThe Role of TFS in Speech PerceptionThe Influence of Hearing Loss and Age on the Binaural Processing of TFSOverview, Conclusions and Practical Implications
Readership: Medical professionals, academics and clinicians in hearing, life science students and biomedical researchers.
Key Features:Sensitivity to temporal fine structure (TFS) in sound is currently a hot topic, but no other book focuses on this topicThe book provides a critical review and interpretation of data on sensitivity to TFS and how sensitivity is affected by hearing loss and ageThe author has published extensively in this areaKeywords:Hearing;Hearing Loss;Age;Temporal Fine Structure;Envelope;Hearing Impairment
