Davis TJ, Gifford RH. Spatial Release From Masking in Adults With Bilateral Cochlear Implants: Effects of Distracter Azimuth and Microphone Location. Journal of speech, language, and hearing research : JSLHR. 2018 Mar 15;61(61). 752-761. PMID: 29450488 [PubMed]
The primary purpose of this study was to derive spatial release from masking (SRM) performance-azimuth functions for bilateral cochlear implant (CI) users to provide a thorough description of SRM as a function of target/distracter spatial configuration. The secondary purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of the microphone location for SRM in a within-subject study design.
