Background: Temstem is a smartphone app developed with and for clinical voice hearing individuals with the aim to reduce their voice hearing distress and improve social functioning. Methods: A randomized controlled trial with adult outpatients suffering from distressing and frequent auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH) was conducted....

The work presented in this thesis investigates the creation of virtual sound sources in a room equipped with a limited number of loudspeakers. This limited number of loudspeakers is typical for consumer loudspeaker systems. Ideally, these systems can provide a listening experience in which localisation cues are completely present. However, in...

Introduction: Although hearing impairment is recognized as a significant modifiable risk factor for dementia, no standardized methods or guidelines exist for hearing screening in cognitively impaired patients. The objectives of this study are to establish a suitable hearing assessment method at the memory clinic, compare the prevalence of...

Over the past decade, spatial audio awareness evolved into an in-demand feature in audio entertainment. The addition of sound source locations to, for instance, movies or music adds a level of auditory envelopment and spatial awareness to the audio experience. Expensive setups present in, for instance, cinema's, are able to create this...

Hearing loss is a highly prevalent multifactorial disorder affecting 20% of the global population. Current treatments using the systemic administration of drugs are therapeutically ineffective due to the anatomy of the cochlea and the existing blood–labyrinth barrier. Local drug delivery systems can ensure therapeutic drug concentrations locally...

The ways in which seabirds navigate over very large spatial scales remain poorly understood. While olfactory and visual information can provide guidance over short distances, their range is often limited to 100s km, far below the navigational capacity of wide-ranging animals such as albatrosses. Infrasound is a form of low-frequency sound...

The earplug development followed by ALPINE, a hearing protection company is a trial and error method. This method leads to high material wastage. It is also a time-consuming and expensive development process. So, the objective of this thesis is to ease the error earplug development process by implementing a prediction model. The research is...

Background: Temstem is a mobile application developed in cooperation with voice-hearing persons to help them cope with distressing voices. After psychoeducation about voice hearing, Temstem offers two functions: Silencing is a mode designed to inhibit voice activity through the processing of incompatible language; the Challenging mode...

While previous research on spatial sound perception investigated the physical mechanisms producing the most relevant elevation cues, how spectral notches are generated and related to the individual morphology of the human pinna is still a topic of debate. Correctly modeling these important elevation cues, and in particular the lowest...

The processing of low-frequency interaural time differences is found to be problematic among hearing-impaired people. The current generation of beamformers does not consider this deficiency. In an attempt to tackle this issue, we propose to replace the inaudible interaural time differences in the low-frequency region with the interaural level...

To investigate how an unmanned air vehicle can detect manned aircraft with a single microphone, an audio data set is created in which unmanned air vehicle ego-sound and recorded aircraft sound are mixed together. A convolutional neural network is used to perform air traffic detection. Due to restrictions on flying unmanned air vehicles close to...

Seabirds are amongst the most mobile of all animal species and spend large amounts of their lives at sea. They cross vast areas of ocean that appear superficially featureless, and our understanding of the mechanisms that they use for navigation remains incomplete, especially in terms of available cues. In particular, several large-scale...

Objective: Recent studies have suggested an association between age-related hearing loss and cognitive decline. Yet, the underlying mechanism explaining this relation remains unknown. In this regard, several studies investigated gray matter (GM) differences in age-related hearing loss but presented inconsistent results regarding the association...

This thesis describes the design process to enhance the music festival experience for hearing-impaired people. This assignment was set up to make the MOJO backstage exhibition at Museum Prinsenhof Delft inclusive for hearing-impaired people. First, context mapping research with hearing-impaired and hearing festival visitors shows that...

We investigate how an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) can detect manned aircraft with a single microphone. In particular, we create an audio data set in which UAV ego-sound and recorded aircraft sound can be mixed together, and apply convolutional neural networks to the task of air traffic detection. Due to restrictions on flying UAVs close to...

Assignment. The Usher Syndrome is a hereditary disorder, where people's sight and hearing degenerates over time. As a result, being socially involved with other people can be challenging, especially in rooms that are low-lit and that include background noise. The project was initiated to help people with Usher Syndrome to still be able to...

In this paper, we propose a new binaural beamforming technique, which can be seen as a relaxation of the linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) framework. The proposed method can achieve simultaneous noise reduction and exact binaural cue preservation of the target source, similar to the binaural minimum variance distortionless response ...

We consider the problem of determining the relative position of dual-microphone sub-arrays. The proposed solution is mainly developed for binaural hearing aid systems (HASs), where each hearing aid (HA) in the HAS has two microphones at a known distance from each other. However, the proposed algorithm can effortlessly be applied to acoustic...

Bilateral cochlear implants (CIs) can restore hearing in deaf children, by electrically stimulating the auditory pathways. The effects of long-term deafness have been extensively studied and it is well known that deafness leads to cross-modal reorganization of the brain. However, the short term effects of CI use on the developing auditory...

We propose a new multi-microphone noise reduction technique for binaural cue preservation of the desired source and the interferers. This method is based on the linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) framework, where the constraints are used for the binaural cue preservation of the desired source and of multiple interferers. In this...
