I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Speech and Hearing Science with clinical certification/licensure to practice Audiology. My research is focused on speech perception in the normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners.
There's an old saying, "Don't judge a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes." The logic of this advice draws on a fundamental truth of human psychology: an individual's perceptions of the world, and thus their reactions to it, are influenced by their subjective perspective.
Speech can be presented as a summation of frequency bands with amplitude-modulated signals. Each frequency band consists of a fine structure and a temporal envelope. According to this view, listeners can rely on three acoustic cues to understand speech: spectral, fine structure and temporal.
