Note

Information is often communicated as an acoustical signal via different media such as radio, mobile phones, internet and TV. In settings where a listening task is difficult, individuals use both their hearing and cognitive abilities to process the auditory information. Cognitive skills serve an important role in the combination of increasing age and decreasing hearing ability, as processing information becomes increasingly difficult. Previous knowledge and experience can help decode a message in complex listening situations.

The purpose of the project is to increase theoretical knowledge and develop methods to investigate how speech intelligibility can be interrupted by other speech sources, and to investigate and describe different factors involved in informational masking. A Swedish version of the Hayling test (Shallice and Burgess, 1996) has been developed to examine the executive functions initiation and inhibition. The test evaluates 1) an individuals’ ability to fast lexical access and initiation speed, and 2) the ability to inhibit a sensible response, yielding measures of response suppression ability and thinking time. Executive functions such as initiation and inhibition are important when listening to speech in noise, especially if the masking source is speech. In this presentation the development of the Swedish Hayling will be described.
