Experts issue warnings about lax rules ahead of e-scooters becoming legal this coming weekend.
PM AdankI detest #escooters with a passion I normally reserve only for e-bikes (in the UK). I was knocked over nearly by a person in Bloomsbury 100 metres from the Royal Institute of Blind people...
For nearly 25 years, researchers have recognized the rich and numerous facets of native perception of non‐native speech, driving a large, and growing, body of work that has shed light on how native l...
PM AdankPerception of non‐native speech (review paper)
All it takes is a face to face conversation in a noisy environment to realize that viewing a speaker’s lip movements contributes to speech comprehension. Following the finding that brain areas that control speech production are also recruited during...

ty. We therefore investigated whether there is an association between tinnitus and speech understanding in noise, independent of hearing loss.
Of 4,211 participants from the population-based Rotterdam Study (mean age 67.8 [SD 8.9], 57.3%...
PM AdankTinnitus Affects Speech in Noise Comprehension in Individuals With Hearing Loss
Purpose Decades of research have explored communication in cerebrovascular diseases by focusing on formulaic expressions (e.g., “Thank you”—“You’re welcome”). This category of utterances is known for engaging primarily right-hemisphere...

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of aging and cochlear implant (CI) on psychoacoustic and speech recognition abilities and to assess the relative contributions of psychoacoustic and demographic factors to speech recognition of older...

Listeners exposed to accented speech must adjust how they map between acoustic features and lexical representations such as phonetic categories. A robust form of this adaptive perceptual learning is learning to perceive synthetic speech where the...
