A major science prize, Pauline Ashley Prize 2007 was awarded to a UK researcher who has been in a quest for a region// in the human brain that could help to single out somebody's voice in a noisy environment like in a party or get together and also responsible for training the brain to hear better in such circumstances.

To see what this was like, Irving wore an earplug in one ear for a week which gave him a one-sided hearing loss. He said: "It was hell - especially when I was in the pub with friends. The background hubbub of the bar seemed to be the same level as the people I was talking to so I could barely hear what they were saying and it took a huge effort of concentration to follow any conversation. During the week, I gave up and spent a lot of time at home on my own because it was so distressing and tiring to be with lots of people or in a noisy place."

Our ability to detect a particular sound in the middle of lots of noise relies on the fact that we have
