Project description

The goal of the this research is to optimize hearing aid benefit taking into account the interaction between auditory periphery and more high-order cognitive functioning. It is focused on first, hearing outcome measures leading to insights with regard to speech understanding and listening effort, and second, the fitting and users of hearing aids leading to evidence-based
recommendations.
