Re: Is there a gender difference for speech identification in noise.

There is an enormous amount of interesting literature on sex differences in
both otoacoustic emissions and their contralateral suppression, indicating
differences in the function of the auditory efferents and thus in hearing.

Most of the work has been done by two groups:

Dennis McFadden, Austin/Texas, USA, et al.
Lionel Collet, Lyon, France, et al.
