Perceptual Consequences of Cochlear Damage

Brian C. J. Moore

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes temporal integration, the process whereby the auditory system combines information over time, and temporal resolution, the ability to detect changes in the time pattern of sounds, considering both normal and impaired hearing. Topics covered include models of temporal processing in the auditory system, and a review of experimental evidence indicating that temporal processing appears normal for some tasks, but is abnormal for others. The results are interpreted using the idea that central mechanisms are unaffected by cochlear loss, but altered peripheral mechanisms (such as abnormal input-output functions) can lead to abnormal temporal processing for some tasks.
