Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg - Institute for Advanced Study, Delemenhorst
Workshop "Binauraul Factors and Compensation Schemes in Hearing Impairment"
June 21 -24, 2015
Organizers: Doz. Dr. Bernhard Laback and Prof. Dr. Dr. Birger Kollmeier
In the second year of the study group, the focus will be on research on the mechanisms and ecological advantages of binaural hearing, on respective consequences of hearing impairment and cochlear-implant hearing, and on the development of strategies for future hearing devices to compensate for deficits in binaural hearing.
The workshop will focus on perceptual/ psychophysical aspects as well as on signal processing and physiological aspects of hearing devices. The goals of the workshop are
