Guest: Richard Salvi, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Communicative Disorders and Sciences, Co-founder and Director of University at Buffalo’s Center for Hearing and Deafness Have you ever noticed that in a noisy room, you struggle to hear what people are saying, but in quiet place, you can hear just fine?
