  1. Acoustic and perceptual effects of WDRC amplification
    Pamela Souza; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ....
  2. Acoustic and perceptual effects of WDRC amplification
    Pamela E Souza; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..The focus of this project is to determine hearing aid settings that will provide the best possible speech recognition for each individual under a variety of listening conditions. ..
  3. Acoustic and perceptual effects of WDRC amplification
    Pamela E Souza; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..Our hypothesis is that listeners with severe loss who are less able to discriminate spectral details will show less degradation from larger numbers of compression channels. ..
