Voice pitch is an essential feature for speech understanding. Envelope following responses (EFRs) are a useful EEG measure to infer the encoding of voice pitch and can be elicited by band-limited speech to assess the processing of voice pitch in a frequency-specific manner.

Accurate use of interaural time differences (ITDs) for spatial hearing may require access to bilateral auditory input during sensitive periods in human development. Providing bilateral cochlear implants (CIs) simultaneously promotes symmetrical development of bilateral auditory pathways but does not support normal ITD sensitivity.
