    Speech Perception Speech perception is the ability to comprehend speech through listening. Mankind is constantly being bombarded by acoustical energy. The challenge to humanity is to translate this energy into meaningful data. Speech perception is not dependent on the extraction of simple invariant acoustic patterns in the speech waveform. The sound's acoustic pattern is complex and greatly varies. It is dependent upon the preceding and following sounds (Moore, 1997). According to Fant (1973)

    A comparative study of effect of noise on speech perception score in adults and children with normal hearing. Introduction: Hearing and listening are two sides of the same coin. We might hear a variety of sounds but we listen to or perceive only those sound signals that are of our interest. Thus, perception or the process of filtering away the unwanted signal is of importance. Perception, thus, refers to the process by which an individual organizes and interprets sensory data he has received, on

    features of speech sounds from the acoustic signal? Speech sounds can be defined as those that belong to a language and convey meaning. While the distinction of such sounds from other auditory stimuli such as the slamming of a door comes easily, it is not immediately clear why this should be the case. It was initially thought that speech was processed in a phoneme-by-phoneme fashion; however, this theory became discredited due to the development of technology that produces spectrograms of speech.

    Mystifying the Senses: Bimodal Speech Perception My grandmother, like many elderly people, suffers from hearing loss. Recently however, she has begun to lose her sight as well. Curiously enough, though her level of auditory impairment remains the same since macular degeneration has claimed her ability to see, her hearing seems to have deteriorated further. Could this be simply the result of alienation because of the loss of a further sense? This situation led me to wonder about my own hearing

    major issue in the study of spoken language is how humans are able to successfully perceive speech in spite of its variability. For instance, speakers can differ in speech rate, dialect, and even in the rate of the syllables within the words of speech (Newman & Sawusch, 1996). Words in speech often become distorted as with coarticulation, a phenomenon in which speakers overlap words in normal continuous speech (Dilley & Pitt, 2010). In some cases, the overlapping of adjacent words can be so severe that

    system/temporal.asp). The temporal lobe is separated into two sides: dominate and non-dominate. The dominate side of the temporal lobe is usually the left side and is involved in the perception of words, processing language related to sounds, sequential analysis, increased blood flow during speech perception, processing details, intermediate term memory, long term memory, auditory learning, retrieval of words, complex memories, and visual and auditory processing. A patient who is experiencing

    significance in the way we interact is speech. Speech involves the emission of a series of sounds, which have unique acoustic structure, which is made up of audible qualities over time. The human auditory system receives the segmented streams of information contained in whatever has been spoken. On receipt of the acoustic speech signal, the individual relies on their acquired knowledge on linguistics and their ability to deduce the intended message from the speech, skills which one develops from infancy

    Yes, I plan to improve some of the actions I display on a daily basis, such as I’ve noticed displaying an annoyed face in the mornings. This shows that something is on my mind and it’s bothering me unconsciously. This five factor personality feedback test showed me that I am much more than what I actually thought.

    brains are used to reduce differences in time onset between auditory and visual stimuli. As mentioned before, light travels faster than sound, but both arise mainly from the same source as the auditory stimulus. Our brains adapt to this and form a perception which unites these stimuli. (Fuijisaki, Shimojo, Kashino & Nishida, 2004). However, a certain degree of flexibility in multisensory processing was found by Powers, Hillock and Wallace (2009). They stated that psychopathology is sometimes accompanied
