Abstract
<jats:sec> <jats:title>Purpose</jats:title> <jats:p>Background noise can interfere with our ability to understand speech. Working memory capacity (WMC) has been shown to contribute to the perception of speech in modulated noise maskers. WMC has been assessed with a variety of auditory and visual tests, often pertaining to different components of working memory. This study assessed the relationship between speech perception in modulated maskers and components of auditory verbal working memory (AVWM) over a range of signal-to-noise ratios.</jats:p> </jats:sec> <jats:sec> <jats:title>Method</jats:title> <jats:p>Speech perception in noise and AVWM were measured in 3...
