  1. 1. Dealing with Digits Arithmetic, Memory and Phonology in Deaf Signers

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Josefine Andin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adult deaf signers; phonology; arithmetic; short-term memory; working memory; neuro imaging; Vuxna teckenspråkiga döva; fonologi; aritmetik; korttidsminne; arbetsminne; hjärnavbildning;

    Sammanfattning : Deafness has been associated with poor abilities to deal with digits in the context of arithmetic and memory, and language modality-specific differences in the phonological similarity of digits have been shown to influence short-term memory (STM). Therefore, the overall aim of the present thesis was to find out whether language modality-specific differences in phonological processing between sign and speech can explain why deaf signers perform at lower levels than hearing peers when dealing with digits.

  2. 2. Representing sounds and spellings Phonological decline and compensatory working memory in acquired hearing impairment

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Elisabet Classon; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Acquired hearing impairment; phonology; WMC; reading span; Förvärvad hörselnedsättning; fonologi; arbetsminne; lässpann;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examined phonological processing in adults with postlingually acquired moderate-to-severe hearing impairment (HI) and whether explicit working memory processing of phonology and individual working memory capacity (WMC) can compensate for degraded phonological representations in this group (papers I-III). A second aim was to provide reference data for a test of WMC, the reading span test, and to examine the relation between reading span test performance and speech recognition in noise in a larger sample of 50-89 year olds with HI (paper IV).

  3. 3. Signs for Developing Reading Sign Language and Reading Development in Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Emil Holmer; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Deaf and hard-of-hearing; intervention; sign language; reading development; word reading; reading comprehension; working memory; imitation; Theory of Mind; Döva och hörselskadade barn; intervention; teckenspråk; läsutveckling; ordläsning; läsförståelse; arbetsminne; imitation; Theory of Mind;

    Sammanfattning : Reading development is supported by strong language skills, not least in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children. The work in the present thesis investigates reading development in DHH children who use sign language, attend Regional Special Needs Schools (RSNS) in Sweden and are learning to read. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Employees with Aided Hearing Impairment An Interdisciplinary Perspective

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Håkan Hua; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hearing impairment; cognitive skills; noise; labor market; Hörselnedsättning; kognitiva förmågor; buller; arbetsmarknad;

    Sammanfattning : In Sweden 13% of the general adult population (16-84 years), with or without hearing aids (HAs), report that they have difficulties following a conversation when more than two people are involved. This means that more than one million people in Sweden (9 500 000 inhabitants in total) report subjective hearing difficulties. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Lost in Translation Speech recognition and memory processes in native and non-native language perception

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Lisa Kilman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Speech perception; perceived disturbance; native; non-native; working memory; language proficiency; episodic long-term memory; Taluppfattning; upplevd störning; modersmål; ett andra språk; arbetsminne; språkfärdigheter; episodiskt långtids-minne;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis employed an integrated approach and investigated intra- and inter-individual differences relevant for normally hearing (NH) and hearing-impaired (HI) adults in native (Swedish) and non-native (English) languages in adverse listening conditions. The integrated approach encompassed the role of cognition as a focal point of interest as well as perceptualauditory and linguistic factors. LÄS MER
