Dataset Open Access
This dataset contains EEG recordings from 18 subjects listening to one of two competing speech audio streams. Continuous speech in trials of ~50 sec. was presented to normal hearing listeners in simulated rooms with different degrees of reverberation. Subjects were asked to attend one of two spatially separated speakers (one male, one female) and ignore the other. Repeated trials with presentation of a single talker were also recorded. The data were recorded in a double-walled soundproof booth at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) using a 64-channel Biosemi system and digitized at a sampling rate of 512 Hz. Full details can be found in:
The data is organized in format of the publicly available COCOHA Matlab Toolbox. The preproc_script.m demonstrates how to import and align the EEG and audio data. The script also demonstrates some EEG preprocessing steps as used the Wong et al. paper above. The AUDIO.zip contains wav-files with the speech audio used in the experiment. The EEG.zip contains MAT-files with the EEG/EOG data for each subject. The EEG/EOG data are found in data.eeg with the following channels:
The expinfo table contains information about experimental conditions, including what what speaker the listener was attending to in different trials. The expinfo table contains the following information:
DATA_preproc.zip contains the preprocessed EEG and audio data as output from preproc_script.m.
