Invisible Hearing Loss and Speech Perception in Middle Age

The fact that temporal processing issues and temporal abnormalities can negatively impact speech perception in noise has been well described in the literature and is fairly well accepted. For example, Dubno and colleagues (2002) reported that people with reduced temporal resolution (due to aging or hearing loss) demonstrate poor speech recognition in temporally modulated noise, and deficient temporal processing may be a major factor associated with age-related speech in noise difficulties.
