Ecologically valid listening tests
More specifically, the objective is to develop more ecologically valid listening tests taking realistic acoustic scenarios and social consequences of failure into account. Hence, the impact of task demands, motivation, and fatigue on the listening effort will be studied within the project using physiological measures of listening effort such as pupillometry, pre-ejection period (PEP), and electroencephalogram (EEG). The long-term perspective is to evaluate the effect of hearing devices and their characteristics on those biomarkers of effort in ecological valid listening situations.
The HEAR-ECO consortium consists of the beneficiaries VU University medical center, University of Nottingham – Scottish Section, Eriksholm Research Center of Oticon and associated partner Liverpool John Moores University.
