When a signal varies in its properties along the time and frequency, this is considered a modulation. Speech signals exhibit temporal and spectral modulations. The sensitivity to these modulations has been studied in normal-hearing (NH) listeners, yielding temporal, spectral and spectro-temporal modulation transfer functions (Dau et al. 1997, Eddins & Bero 2007, Chi et al. 1999). Recently, Mehraei et al. (2014) showed significant differences between normal-hearing and hearing-impaired (HI) listeners in spectro-temporal modulation (STM) detection and also the relation between STM sensitivity to speech intelligibility in noise. Moreover, Henry et al. (2005) showed large differences in STM discriminations tasks. The present study attempted to establish the limits of STM perception in NH listeners and two groups of HI (with either good or poor speech intelligibility ).
