  • Magnetic
  • We tested the hypothesis that: (i) the amplitude of the N1m response and (ii) its decrement during rapid stimulation are associated with the cortical neurochemistry as determined by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. (biomedcentral.com)
  • ears
  • Three primary findings were that (1) there was statistically significant benefit of preserved acoustic hearing in the implanted ear for most overlap conditions, (2) the default clinical software recommendation rarely yielded the highest level of speech recognition (1 of 13 ears), and (3) greater EAS overlap than that provided by the clinical recommendation yielded significant improvements in speech understanding.

  • patients
  • In conclusion, EAS patients may derive more benefit from greater acoustic and electric overlap than given in current software fitting recommendations, which are based solely on audiometric threshold. (ovid.com)
  • electric
  • The primary objective of this study was to assess the effect of electric and acoustic overlap for speech understanding in typical listening conditions using semidiffuse noise. (ovid.com)
  • Speech perception was assessed using Consonant-Nucleus-Consonant (CNC) word lists presented in quiet and AzBio sentences presented at a +5 dB signal-to-noise ratio in both the combined acoustic and electric (A+E) and electric (E) alone listening modes. (frontiersin.org)
  • rapidly
  • Speech perception often occurs in a densely cluttered, rapidly changing acoustic environment, where multiple sounds vie for attention. (biomedsearch.com)
  • conditions
  • SWA during the entire sleep period was similar between stimulation and sham conditions, whereas SWA and spindle activity were increased during ON intervals compared to matched periods during the sham night. (frontiersin.org)
  • However, ECochG amplitude was correlated with a composite metric relating the additional benefit of acoustic gain in noise relative to quiet conditions ( r = 0.67). (frontiersin.org)
  • slow
  • Using the phase-locked-loop method to precisely target acoustic stimulation to the upstate of sleep slow oscillations, we were able to enhance SWA and improve sleep-dependent memory storage in older adults, which strengthens the theoretical link between sleep and age-related memory integrity.

  • Application
  • Cells are known to interact and respond to external mechanical cues and recent work has shown that application of mechanical stimulation, delivered via acoustic vibration, can be used to control complex cell behaviours. (ljmu.ac.uk)
  • promote
  • Mechanical stimulation was also found to promote changes to the morphology of LL24 and L929 cell lines, particularly the formation of lamellipodia and filopodia. (ljmu.ac.uk)
  • show
  • The results show that 100Hz acoustic vibration can enhance cell migration, wound healing in LL24 and L929 cells and possible increase muscle fibre diameters although there was no significance, the trends were repeatable. (ljmu.ac.uk)
