Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The aim of this project is to gain insight into how the human brain separates sounds into foreground and background – a key factor to hear out a conversation (foreground) in background noise (background). This is important, because
understanding speech in noise is essential to human interactions and it is the primary complaint of those with hearing loss.
