Auditory Perception Lab

Speech perception

Speech perception is being studied within the framework of temporal processing and in relation to noise. Speech perception studies conducted in the Auditory Perception Lab focus on the origin of difficulties in speech perception among different populations and the effect of environmental factors, such as various types of noise and levels, the use of hearing protection, sleep deprivation and more.
