    Brent Edwards
    Starkey Hearing Research Center, Berkeley, California 94704, USA
    Trends Amplif 11:31-45. 2007
    ..Additionally, emerging trends such as connectivity and individualization will also drive new technology, and these are discussed within the context of the areas given here...

    Olaf Strelcyk
    Starkey Hearing Research Center, 2150 Shattuck Avenue, Suite 408, Berkeley, California 94704, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 133:1598-606. 2013
    ..This suggests that channel bandwidth per se has little influence on speech intelligibility when individually prescribed, frequency-varying compressive gain is provided...

    Olaf Strelcyk
    Starkey Hearing Research Center, 2150 Shattuck Avenue, Suite 408, Berkeley, California 94704, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 132:2557-68. 2012
    ..A compression system employing level-dependent compression channels yielded the most promising outcome. The present results inform the development of future loudness models and advanced compensation strategies for the hearing impaired...
  4. doi request reprint Effects of envelope discontinuities on perceptual restoration of amplitude-compressed speech
    Deniz Baskent
    Starkey Hearing Research Center, Berkeley, California 94704, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 125:3995-4005. 2009
    ..These findings can be attributed to envelope discontinuities, with an additional contribution from reduced speech information due to ramping and temporal masking from loud noise bursts...
  5. doi request reprint Phonemic restoration by hearing-impaired listeners with mild to moderate sensorineural hearing loss
    Deniz Baskent
    Starkey Hearing Research Center, Berkeley, CA 94704, USA
    Hear Res 260:54-62. 2010
    ..The overall findings suggest that, in addition to insufficient audibility, degradations in the bottom-up and/or top-down mechanisms as a result of hearing loss may limit or entirely prevent phonemic restoration...
