Abstract

Objective: Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) is a condition wherein the pre-neural or cochlear outer hair cell activity is intact, but the neural activity in the auditory nerve is disrupted. Cochlear implant (CI) can be beneficial for subjects with ANSD; however, lithe is known about the music perception and psychoacoustic abilities of CI users with ANSD. Music perception in CI users is a multidimensional and complex ability requiring the contribution of both auditory and nonauditory abilities. Even though auditory abilities lay the foundation, the contribution of patient-related variables such as ANSD may affect the music perception. This study aimed to evaluate the psychoacoustic and music perception abilities of CI recipients with ANSD.
