However, it is limited in scope in that it does not address sensory modulation, ideational praxis, or auditory discrimination, and relatively few items address vestibular and proprioceptive functions.
Central Auditory Processing (CAP) can be defined as the set of mechanisms and processes responsible for the phenomena of sound lateralization and localization, for auditory discrimination, for auditory pattern recognition, for temporal aspects in audition (resolution and temporal ordering), for integration and binaural separation abilities and auditory abilities with competitive and degraded acoustic signals [3].
Previous animal studies [1, 2] demonstrated that auditory discrimination training induced frequency-specific receptive field plasticity in the adult guinea pig auditory cortex.
Auditory discrimination, sound localization, and movement
I will train rats in a new auditory discrimination task using predictable stimulus sequences that, once learned, are used to compute adaptive priors that improve discrimination.
Subsequent sections focus on research design methods issues like behavioral heterogeneity, randomized controlled trials, and small sample size, and measuring outcomes, including the assessment of auditory discrimination abilities in nonspeaking individuals, measuring communication and language skills, social validity measurement, and cultural, ethnic, and linguistic differences.
By contrast with the sighted subjects, half of the blind participants showed enhanced auditory discrimination abilities under monaural listening conditions, having one ear blocked.
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the APD includes the auditory mechanisms that underlie the following abilities or skills: auditory discrimination; temporal aspects of audition; sound localization and lateralization; auditory performance in competing acoustic signals and auditory performance with degraded acoustic signals.
Then, an important question is that do these informal musical activities affect development of auditory discrimination and attention in preschool-aged children?
