What is it about?
Neural correlates of spatial processing and its deficits in hearing impaired is an intriguing phenomenon. We demonstrate the differences in the neural encoding of space between hearing impaired and normal hearing listeners using high-density electroencephalography recordings. The interhemispheric variations of processing spatial deviants by right and left hemifields are comprehensively explored in this study.

Why is it important?
Our findings show that hearing loss alters brain topographies underlying spatial encoding. These changes can be appreciated in the pre-attentive stages itself.
