Disorders of temporal resolution capacity are related to the difficulties of phonological processing and auditory discrimination of temporal cues of speech, resulting in difficulties to identify small acoustic variations of speech, impairing the proper production of its sounds or to interpret the message heard [2,3].
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.
While this remains a very plausible explanation, another possible factor that might explain this pattern is that situations involving the types of auditory discrimination required in the TARPA protocol are not very common in the everyday socioverbal environment, at least not in the particular way in which they are presented in this context.
Prenatal experiences have a remarkable influence on the brain's auditory discrimination accuracy, which may support, for example, language acquisition during infancy," the authors wrote in their study.
2) Auditory discrimination was significantly improved in unexposed control rats at both doses.
The text includes inventories and checklists to assess the interests and priorities of children, teens, and adults; graded word recognition lists and reader's passages; phonics and structural analysis inventories; English language learning, spelling, arithmetic, visual and auditory discrimination, preliteracy and emerging literacy, and cloze tests; and instructions for evaluating language abilities and constructing curriculum-based assessments.
The 2010 American Academy of Audiology Clinical practice guidelines diagnosis, treatment and management of children and adults with central auditory processing disorder [58] and the 2005 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's (Central) auditory processing disorders: Working group on auditory processing disorders [59] both recommended that a central auditory test battery should include tests involving both speech and nonspeech stimuli focusing on (but not limited to): binaural hearing, dichotic stimuli, auditory discrimination, competing and degraded acoustic signals, and the processing of auditory patterns and temporal stimuli.
The app features Widgit symbols and over 700 individual target words which target spoken production of minimal pair words and auditory discrimination (identifying the difference between sounds in words).
