In everyday conversations, it is important to understand speech among competing auditory sources. Such situations are typically challenging for hearing-impaired listeners. Importantly, many people without hearing complaints also report difficulties to communicate in multi-speaker settings. However, neural substrates of such selective-attention inability are not clearly understood. We believe that there are many different sources of individual variation that affect the auditory selective attention performance, e.g., cochlear function, early neural coding, binaural system differences, top-down attentional control factors, and cognitive factors not specific to auditory processing (including working memory and language fluency).

The goal of this research topic is to bring together studies that shed light on the neural mechanisms of auditory selective attention and factors that contribute to its deficits. Both behavioral and electrophysiological studies will be encouraged.
