Improving hearing-aid outcomes by tailoring hearing-aid settings with a Spectro-Temporal Modulation test

Johannes Zaar has been granted funding for a two-year PostDoc project from the Oticon Foundation. Starting in August, the project “Improving hearing-aid outcomes by tailoring hearing-aid settings with a Spectro-Temporal Modulation test” will be conducted in collaboration with the Interacoustics Research Unit/Interacoustics A/S and Oticon A/S. The goal of the project is to define a clinical Spectro-Temporal Modulation (STM) test procedure that is complementary to the standard pure-tone audiometry and thus allows to improve individual hearing-aid prescriptions. Furthermore, Johannes will continue his work on speech perception in normal-hearing and (aided) hearing-impaired listeners and related computational models of the auditory system, in particular focusing on the co-supervision of several PhD projects within this area.
