In the lab, participants will listen to various sentences spoken by a male and female speaker that will portray four different emotions:
The sentences will be manipulated in pitch, duration, and intensity, and the listener chooses which emotion is conveyed from a closed set based on these prosodic cues. The time required for each participant should be about 1.5 Priority Five: hours. Results will portray which prosodic cue (pitch, duration, or intensity) is most important for detecting emotions in cochlear implant users and individuals with normal hearing.
