Speech perception in noise (SIN) is a complex task for everyone, but becomes even more difficult in some pathological populations. The aim of my project is to specify dyslexic children’s difficulties in noisy listening conditions, as they exhibit a deficit in the representation and/or utilisation of phonological information. Appropriate SIN perception requires the listener to combine efficiently sensory perception (i.e., peripheral) and cognitive processing (i.e., central). Therefore, I evaluate auditory perception in different masking conditions, inducing either peripheral (via energetic masking) or central (via informational masking) interference. This project combines behavioral and electrophysiological (using the Frequency-Following Response) measures.
