Gap detection thresholds in 1/3-octave white noise were
measured in primary school children aged 7-14 with normal hearing and with very
high frequency sloping hearing loss. The results show median gap detection
thresholds, in the group of normal hearing children of 5.5ms, while in the group
of hearing impaired median gap detection thresholds are five times larger, i.e.
25.5ms, reaching 50ms in some cases.
