  • Ethical Dilemmas: Are Audiologists and Hearing Aid Users on the Same Side? 

    Coolen, James, Rachel Caissie, and Steve Aiken. 2012. "Ethical Dilemmas: Are Audiologists and Hearing Aid Users on the Same Side?." Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology 36(2): 94-105.
    This study examined the opinions of audiologists and hearing aid users on ethical issues related to the provision of hearing aids and interactions with hearing aid manufacturers. With support from two national organizations, ...

  • Envelope following responses elicited by english sentences 

    Choi, J. M., D. W. Purcell, J. A. Coyne, and S. J. Aiken. 2013. "Envelope following responses elicited by english sentences." Ear and hearing 34(5): 637-650.
    OBJECTIVES: It would be clinically valuable if an electrophysiological validation of hearing aid effectiveness in conveying speech information could be performed when a device is first provided to the individual after ...
  • Envelope following responses to natural vowels 

    Aiken, S. J., and T. W. Picton. 2006. "Envelope following responses to natural vowels." Audiology & Neuro-Otology 11(4): 213-232.
    Envelope following responses to natural vowels were recorded in 10 normal hearing people. Responses were recorded to individual vowels (/a/, /i/, /u/) with a relatively steady pitch, to /[symbol: see text]/ with a variable ...
  • Acoustic stapedius reflex function in man revisited 

    Aiken, S. J., J. N. Andrus, M. Bance, and D. P. Phillips. 2013. "Acoustic stapedius reflex function in man revisited." Ear and hearing 34(4): 38-51.
    OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to examine the role of the acoustic stapedius reflex in the protection of speech recognition from the upward spread of masking arising from low-frequency background noise. DESIGN: ...
  • Human cortical responses to the speech envelope 

    Aiken, S. J., and T. W. Picton. 2008. "Human cortical responses to the speech envelope." Ear and hearing 29(2): 139-157.
    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the response of the human auditory cortex to the temporal amplitude-envelope of speech. Responses to the speech envelope could be useful for validating the neural encoding of intelligible speech, ...
  • Envelope and spectral frequency-following responses to vowel sounds 

    Aiken, S. J., and T. W. Picton. 2008. "Envelope and spectral frequency-following responses to vowel sounds." Hearing research 245(1-2): 35-47.
    Frequency-following responses (FFRs) were recorded to two naturally produced vowels (/a/ and /i/) in normal hearing subjects. A digitally implemented Fourier analyzer was used to measure response amplitude at the fundamental ...
