Re: Effect of hearing loss on normal hearing range
hearing loss (and the related plastic changes) has been shown to be
with an improvement of frequency discrimination at the cut-off frequency
hearing loss (McDermott et al., 1998; Thai-van et al., 2002, 2003, 2007 - in
press; Kluk and Moore, 2006).
On the other hand, it seems that a hearing loss confined to high frequencies
could induce a global increase in auditory hypersensitivity (hyperacusis). We
have a paper in press (Norena & Chery-Croze, 2007), but see also the
interesting study of Formby et al (2003).
Hope this helps,
