  • Task-specific organization of activity in human jaw muscles 

    Moore, Christopher A.; Smith, A.; Ringel, R. L. (American Speech - Language - Hearing Association, 1988-12)
    Coordination of jaw muscle activity for speech production sometimes has been modeled using nonspeech behaviors. This orientation has been especially true in representations of mandibular movement in which the synergy of ...
  • Tracking of a "moving" fused auditory image under conditions that elicit the precedence effect 

    Moore, Christopher A.; Cranford, Jerry L.; Rahn, A. E. (American Speech - Language - Hearing Association, 1990-03)
    Pursuit auditory tracking of a fused auditory image (FAI), based on stimulus conditions known to elicit the precedence effect phenomenon in sound localization, was investigated in 36 normal subjects and in a small group ...
  • Tests of the precedence effect in sound localization reveal abnormalities in multiple sclerosis 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Boose, Martha; Moore, Christopher A. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1990-08)
    The precedence effect in sound localization involves presenting identical sounds (e.g., clicks) from pairs of matched speakers situated on opposite sides of a subject's head, with the clicks from one speaker preceding those ...
  • Effects of neocortical lesions on the P300 component of the auditory evoked response 

    Obert, Allan D.; Cranford, Jerry L. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1990-11)
    P300 event-related potentials were recorded in 10 subjects with neocortical lesions, and 10 control subjects, using a basic oddball paradigm. In separate tests, subjects discriminated rare and frequent tones that differed ...
  • Effects of aging on the precedence effect in sound localization 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Boose, Martha; Moore, Christopher A. (American Speech - Language - Hearing Association, 1990-12)
    The precedence effect in sound localization can be evoked by presenting identical sounds (e.g., clicks) from pairs of loudspeakers placed on opposite sides of a subject's head. With appropriate inter-loudspeaker delays, ...
  • Limitations of analysis of covariance designs in aging research 

    Martin, Douglas R.; Ellsworth, Randy; Cranford, Jerry L. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1991-02)
    Control of peripheral hearing loss represents a significant design problem in research examining age-related changes in central auditory processing. Statistical control procedures (e.g., partial correlation or analysis of ...
  • Age-related changes in binaural processing: I. Evoked potential findings 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Martin, Douglas R. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1991-09)
    Possible age-related effects of speech competition in one ear on the late auditory (LAEP) and P300 event-related potentials recorded at the other ear were investigated with female volunteers. In each of the age categories ...
  • Age-related changes in binaural processing II. Behavioral findings 

    Martin, Douglas R.; Cranford, Jerry L. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1991-09)
    In the preceding report in this journal, the authors presented evidence for an electrophysiologic correlate of impaired binaural processing or attention in elderly listeners. In the present experiment, the subjects tested ...
  • The high-risk register for hearing loss in Kansas: some preliminary data 

    Wynne, M. K.; Molloy, T.; Bloom, B. T. (Kansas Medical Society, 1992-06)
  • Repair behaviors of children with and without mental retardation 

    Scudder, Rosalind Regier; Tremain, D. H. (American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 1992-10)
    Repair behaviors (a speaker's attempts to make a message understood when the listener indicates a breakdown in communication has occurred) of children with and without mental retardation, ages 8 to 13, were compared as ...
  • Precedence effect and speech understanding in elderly listeners 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Romereim, B. (American Academy of Audiology, 1992-11)
    It has been reported that many elderly persons exhibit problems in identifying the location of fused auditory images in a test of the precedence effect in sound localization. The precedence effect involves the neural ...
  • Influences of age and hearing loss on the precedence effect in sound localization 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Andres, M. A.; Piatz, K. K.; Reissig, K. L. (American Speech - Language - Hearing Association, 1993-04)
    Cranford, Boose, & Moore (1990a) reported that many elderly persons exhibit problems in perceiving the apparent location of fused auditory images in a sound localization task involving the Precedence Effect (PE). In the ...
  • Tracking of "moving" fused auditory images by children 

    Cranford, Jerry L.; Morgan, M.; Scudder, Rosalind Regier; Moore, Christopher A. (American Speech - Language - Hearing Association, 1993-04)
    Recent investigations (Cranford, Boose, & Moore, 1990a,b; Moore, Cranford, & Rahn, 1990) studied the ability of normal adult subjects to localize sounds under conditions that elicit the Precedence Effect. In different ...
  • Specific developmental disorders. The language-learning continuum 

    Swank, L. K. (W.B. Saunders, 1999-01)
    The goal of this article is to inform and educate those who work with children who present with language-learning disorders about phonologic processing deficits, because this area has been shown to have a significant impact ...
  • Metalinguistic awareness in children: a developmental progression 

    Edwards, Harold T.; Kirkpatrick, Anita G. (Springer New York LLC, 1999-07)
    The purpose of this study was to determine if a developmental order exists in the metalinguistic ability of children to make judgments about the form of language while simultaneously attending to a meaningful linguistic ...
  • A further analysis of narrative skills of children who stutter 

    Trautman, Lisa Scott; Healey, E. Charles; Brown, Tricia A.; Brown, Penny; Jermano, Shawnna (Elsevier, 1999-09)
