Cochlear hearing loss is associated with several changes in the way that loudness is perceived. This chapter reviews those changes, especially loudness recruitment, which is a more rapid than normal growth of loudness that occurs for most impaired ears. Topics covered include: loudness recruitment and reduced dynamic range in the impaired cochlea; evidence that loudness recruitment is not an indirect consequence of reduced frequency selectivity, but results mainly from changes in the input-output function of the basilar membrane; implications for theories of loudness coding; perceptual consequences of loudness recruitment; detection of intensity changes in normal and impaired hearing; and perceptual consequences of altered intensity perception.

Keywords:   loudness perception, recruitment, dynamic range, intensity discrimination
