Spatial & Temporal Cognition: Abilities and Deficits Following Hearing Loss
MetadataShow full item record
The link of space to vision and time to audition is an important factor in how hearing loss can differently affect processes that are based in separate modalities. As areas that respond to visual stimuli expand in the brain spatial processes may be enhanced while temporal processing may be diminished due to the lack of a hearing modality. Following will be a review of the spatial and temporal processing in deafness. This literature review will discuss both the evidence of enhanced spatial abilities after hearing loss and its relation with sign languages along with the nature of temporal and sequential deficits in deafness.
