  1. 1. Exploring Cognitive Spare Capacity Executive Processing of Degraded Speech

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Sushmit Mishra; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Working memory; cognitive spare capacity; updating; inhibition; Arbetsminne; kognitiv reservkapacitet; uppdatering; inhibition;

    Abstract : Cognitive resources, specifically working memory capacity are used for listening to speech, especially in noise. Cognitive resources are limited, and if listeners allocate a greater share of these resources to recovering the input signal in noise, fewer resources are available for interpreting and encoding its linguistic content.

  2. 2. Assessing cognitive spare capacity as a measure of listening effort using the Auditory Inference Span Test

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Niklas Rönnberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Listening effort; Cognitive spare capacity; Speech-in-noise; Cognition; Working memory; Updating; Hearing impairment;

    Abstract : Hearing loss has a negative effect on the daily life of 10-15% of the world’s population. One of the most common ways to treat a hearing loss is to fit hearing aids which increases audibility by providing amplification. Hearing aids thus improve speech reception in quiet, but listening in noise is nevertheless often difficult and stressful. READ MORE

  3. 3. Reliability and operating environment based spare parts planning

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Behzad Ghodrati; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drift och underhållsteknik; Operation and Maintenance;

    Abstract : The required spare parts planning for a system/machine is an integral part of the product support strategy. The number of required spare parts can be effectively estimated on the basis of the product reliability characteristics. READ MORE
