Specifics of dichotic perception of speech signals in overweight children and in children with normal weight

The dichotic perception of speech signals was studied in 24 children with normal wt and in 24 overweight children, age 11-13. The predominance of the right ear was observed in the children with normal wt during dichotic perception of speech signals. The interaural distinctions became weaker when the signals were presented in the presence of noise. A considerable number of children with the predominance of the left ear among the overweight children. The inhibitory effect of noise was manifested to a greater degree in the overweight children. The interaural distinctions in the noiseproof feature were manifested in these children to a lesser degree, and the deterioration of perception in many of the obese children was more distinct for signals presented to the left ear.
