  • Vander Werff and her team use neural recordings to see how the brain and auditory system process and encode speech information when there is background noise, and how different types of background noise might change that processing. (syr.edu)
  • Clients with neural processing difficulties are also those who will benefit the most from Auditory Training Programs, so BioMARK also acts as a screening tool for therapy recommendations. (listenandlearn.com.au)
  • In addition to informing how hearing tests are conducted, Auerbach suggests this compensation might be causing or contributing to other auditory perceptual disorders such as tinnitus, often described as a ringing in the ears, or hyperacusis, a condition that causes moderate, everyday sounds to be perceived as intolerably loud. (buffalo.edu)
  • However, factors not strictly related to tinnitus such as hearing loss and hyperacusis, as well as other co-occurring disorders play a prominent role in these changes. (frontiersin.org)
  • But when the brain's limbic system, which is involved in processing emotions and other functions, fails to stop these sounds from reaching conscious auditory processing, tinnitus results. (healthcanal.com)
  • We believe that a dysregulation of the limbic and auditory networks may be at the heart of chronic tinnitus," says the study's lead investigator, Josef P. Rauschecker, Ph.D., a neuroscientist. (healthcanal.com)
  • They found that moderate hyperactivity was present in the primary and posterior auditory cortices of tinnitus patients, but that the nucleus accumbens exhibited the greatest degree of hyperactivity, specifically to sounds that were matched to frequencies lost in patients. (healthcanal.com)
