Abstract

Speech perception studies have traditionally focused on the identification of the acoustic cues that are needed to distinguish the sounds of speech. Recently, however, techniques have been developed that allow investigation of the auditory speech cues. Direct physiological measurements have been made of the output of the auditory system at the levels of the auditory nerve and cochlear nucleus during stimulation by speech signals (e.g. Sachs & Young, 1979). In the present paper, some studies that have used psychophysical techniques to estimate the output of the human auditory periphery during speech stimulation and comparison with perceptual measures of the same stimuli are reviewed
