Sensory perception: supernormal hearing in the blind? (1/1506)

A recent experimental study suggests that blind individuals may compensate for their lack of vision with better-than-normal hearing. This provides support for a view dating back to 18th century philosophers, but the data raise as many problems as they solve.  (+info)

Gene disruption of p27(Kip1) allows cell proliferation in the postnatal and adult organ of corti. (2/1506)

Hearing loss is most often the result of hair-cell degeneration due to genetic abnormalities or ototoxic and traumatic insults. In the postembryonic and adult mammalian auditory sensory epithelium, the organ of Corti, no hair-cell regeneration has ever been observed. However, nonmammalian hair-cell epithelia are capable of regenerating sensory hair cells as a consequence of nonsensory supporting-cell proliferation. The supporting cells of the organ of Corti are highly specialized, terminally differentiated cell types that apparently are incapable of proliferation. At the molecular level terminally differentiated cells have been shown to express high levels of cell-cycle inhibitors, in particular, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors [Parker, S. B., et al. (1995) Science 267, 1024-1027], which are thought to be responsible for preventing these cells from reentering the cell cycle. Here we report that the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27(Kip1) is selectively expressed in the supporting-cell population of the organ of Corti. Effects of p27(Kip1)-gene disruption include ongoing cell proliferation in postnatal and adult mouse organ of Corti at time points well after mitosis normally has ceased during embryonic development. This suggests that release from p27(Kip1)-induced cell-cycle arrest is sufficient to allow supporting-cell proliferation to occur. This finding may provide an important pathway for inducing hair-cell regeneration in the mammalian hearing organ.  (+info)

Assessment of hearing in 80 inbred strains of mice by ABR threshold analyses. (3/1506)

The common occurrence of hearing loss in both humans and mice, and the anatomical and functional similarities of their inner ears, attest to the potential of mice being used as models to study inherited hearing loss. A large-scale, auditory screening project is being undertaken at The Jackson Laboratory (TJL) to identify mice with inherited hearing disorders. To assess hearing sensitivity, at least five mice from each inbred strain had auditory brainstem response (ABR) thresholds determined. Thus far, we have screened 80 inbred strains of mice; 60 of them exhibited homogeneous ABR threshold values not significantly different from those of the control strain CBA/CaJ. This large database establishes a reliable reference for normal hearing mouse strains. The following 16 inbred strains exhibited significantly elevated ABR thresholds before the age of 3 months: 129/J, 129/ReJ, 129/SvJ, A/J, ALR/LtJ, ALS/LtJ, BUB/BnJ, C57BLKS/J, C57BR/cdJ, C57L/J, DBA/2J, I/LnJ, MA/MyJ, NOD/LtJ, NOR/LtJ, and SKH2/J. These hearing impaired strains may serve as models for some forms of human non-syndromic hearing loss and aid in the identification of the underlying genes.  (+info)

Inner ear damage in guinea pigs exposed to stable and impulse noise. (4/1506)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the inner ear damage after exposure to stable noise, impulse noise and stable plus impulse noise in guinea pigs. METHODS: Ninety-six healthy guinea pigs were divided into 3 equal groups. (1) Stable noise group: exposed to 110 dBA stable noise for 3 days, 4 hours per day. (2) Impulse noise group: exposed to 165 dBA simulated cannon fire impulse noise 10 times successively at an interval of 10 seconds. (3) stable plus impulse noise group: exposed to the same stable noise as that in the first group, then after a 2-hour rest, the animals were followed with impulse noise exposures as that in the second group. After those exposure, each of the 3 groups was further divided into 4 subgroups according to the time after the noise exposure, namely, the right after, 7 d, 14 d and 30 d groups. The evoked cortical potential responses to click and tone burst stimulation sound were examined. The surface preparation and celloidine embedded serial section of the cochlea were observed under a light microscope. RESULTS: Both the stable and impulse noise could increase the hearing threshold and damage the inner ear hair cells. The damage in the first group was relatively slight, whereas in group 3 the damage was more severe than that in the other 2 groups. CONCLUSION: For seamen who are working in heavy noise environment, corresponding measures should be taken to protect their ears from noise which induces hearing loss.  (+info)

Single-unit responses in the inferior colliculus of decerebrate cats. I. Classification based on frequency response maps. (5/1506)

This study proposes a classification system for neurons in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) that is based on excitation and inhibition patterns of single-unit responses in decerebrate cats. The decerebrate preparation allowed extensive characterization of physiological response types without the confounding effects of anesthesia. The tone-driven discharge rates of individual units were measured across a range of frequencies and levels to map excitatory and inhibitory response areas for contralateral monaural stimulation. The resulting frequency response maps can be grouped into the following three populations: type V maps exhibit a wide V-shaped excitatory area and no inhibition; type I maps show a more restricted I-shaped region of excitation that is flanked by inhibition at lower and higher frequencies; and type O maps display an O-shaped island of excitation at low stimulus levels that is bounded by inhibition at higher levels. Units that produce a type V map typically have a low best frequency (BF: the most sensitive frequency), a low rate of spontaneous activity, and monotonic rate-level functions for both BF tones and broadband noise. Type I and type O units have BFs that span the cat's range of audible frequencies and high rates of spontaneous activity. Like type V units, type I units are excited by BF tones and noise at all levels, but their rate-level functions may become nonmonotonic at high levels. Type O units are inhibited by BF tones and noise at high levels. The existence of distinct response types is consistent with a conceptual model in which the unit types receive dominant inputs from different sources and shows that these functionally segregated pathways are specialized to play complementary roles in the processing of auditory information.  (+info)

Single-unit responses in the inferior colliculus of decerebrate cats. II. Sensitivity to interaural level differences. (6/1506)

Single units in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) of unanesthetized decerebrate cats can be grouped into three distinct types (V, I, and O) according to the patterns of excitation and inhibition revealed in contralateral frequency response maps. This study extends the description of these response types by assessing their ipsilateral and binaural response map properties. Here the nature of ipsilateral inputs is evaluated directly using frequency response maps and compared with results obtained from methods that rely on sensitivity to interaural level differences (ILDs). In general, there is a one-to-one correspondence between observed ipsilateral input characteristics and those inferred from ILD manipulations. Type V units receive ipsilateral excitation and show binaural facilitation (EE properties); type I and type O units receive ipsilateral inhibition and show binaural excitatory/inhibitory (EI) interactions. Analyses of binaural frequency response maps show that these ILD effects extend over the entire receptive field of ICC units. Thus the range of frequencies that elicits excitation from type V units is expanded with increasing levels of ipsilateral stimulation, whereas the excitatory bandwidth of type I and O units decreases under the same binaural conditions. For the majority of ICC units, application of bicuculline, an antagonist for GABAA-mediated inhibition, does not alter the basic effects of binaural stimulation; rather, it primarily increases spontaneous and maximum discharge rates. These results support our previous interpretations of the putative dominant inputs to ICC response types and have important implications for midbrain processing of competing free-field sounds that reach the listener with different directional signatures.  (+info)

A problem with auditory processing? (7/1506)

Frequency selective effects of alcohol on auditory detection and frequency discrimination thresholds. (8/1506)

In the first of two experiments, the effects of ethyl alcohol on monaural and binaural thresholds for pure tones were measured for a range of frequencies. The results showed a frequency-specific effect in which low frequencies were more severely affected than higher ones. Also, monaural thresholds tended to be more affected by alcohol than binaural ones. The second experiment extended this exploration by measuring frequency discrimination at several different frequencies. In this case, we also obtained a frequency-dependent effect: the increase in discrimination thresholds above 1000 Hz was three times greater than that for lower frequencies. The data suggest that the choice of stimuli may influence the ability to detect changes in auditory performance after alcohol and may account in part for the differences among earlier studies. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that alcohol is acting centrally, at the level of mechanisms involved in the temporal and binaural summation of auditory signals, rather than influencing peripheral structures.  (+info)

I would love your insight on whether my dog should have his blood screened yearly. He is a 5 year old bulldog who takes Metacam occasionally for a low grade luxating patella. I would say he averages 1 dose of Metacam per week (some weeks we dont need to medicate him, other weeks we may have to medicate him twice during the week). Do you think he would benefit from a yearly blood screen to make sure his kidneys and other organs are functioning normally while on Metacam? I will discuss this with our vet when I take him in to get his rabies booster, but I do recognize that vets are businesses. Just thought Id hear some other perspectives first.. Thanks! ...

The absolute threshold of hearing (ATH) is the minimum loudness of a pure tone that an average ear with normal hearing can hear with no other sound present. The absolute threshold relates to the sound that can just be heard by the organism. This is also known as the auditory threshold. The threshold of hearing in humans is 20 µPa (micropascals) = 2×10−5 pascal (Pa). The tympanic membrane of the ear operates as a sound pressure sensor, as does a microphone ...
Objective: The aim of the current study was to assess aided speech-in-noise outcomes and relate those measures to auditory sensitivity and processing, different types of cognitive processing abilities, and signal processing in hearing aids.. Material and method: Participants were 200 hearing-aid wearers, with a mean age of 60.8 years, 43% females, with average hearing thresholds in the better ear of 37.4 dB HL. Tests of auditory functions were hearing thresholds, DPOAEs, tests of fine structure processing, IHC dead regions, spectro-temporal modulation, and speech recognition in quiet (PB words). Tests of cognitive processing function were tests of phonological skills, working memory, executive functions and inference making abilities, and general cognitive tests (e.g., tests of cognitive decline and IQ). The outcome test variables were the Hagerman sentences with 50 and 80% speech recognition levels, using two different noises (stationary speech weighted noise and 4-talker babble), and three ...

Estimates of cochlear traveling wave velocity (TWV) were computed from derived band auditory brain-stem response (ABR) latencies in 24 normal-hearing subjects. Wave V latencies were determined for each of six derived frequency bands (unmasked-8 kHz, 8-4 kHz, 4-2 kHz, 2-1 kHz, 1 kHz-500 Hz, and 500-250 Hz). Representative frequencies were assigned to the derived bands by estimating their energy midpoints, and cochlear positions corresponding to these frequencies were determined using Greenwoods [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 33, 1344-1356 (1961)] place-frequency function for humans. Two procedures were used to estimate TWV. In one procedure, an exponential function of the form l = A + BeCd was fitted to each subjects latency-by-distance data using a least-squares algorithm, and a TWV function was generated by taking the inverse derivative of the latency function with respect to time. In the second procedure, average TWVs between adjacent derived bands were computed directly from subjects ipsilateral wave V
We can better estimate an audio system if errors can be assigned audible significance. Recently established data of the auditory filter is developed into models that predict the audibility, detectability and loudness or errors. Errors are assessed by frequency, loudness, temporal and spatial summations. The models explain critical-band phenomena and several types of masking anomalies. Particular attention is paid to determining the audibility of different noise-bands, especially near absolute...
The well - selected testing machines enable fatigue testing of materials samples and components at very high test frequencies (f ≤ 20 kHz), allowing a highly accelerated determination of cyclic material characteristics. Significantly shorter test times are advantageous, for example, in the development accompanying component validation or the time-critical analysis of different development approaches. This so-called short-term diagnosis allows to provide fast data for FE calculations or to evaluate different manufacturing parameters in relative comparison. Especially in the range of very high load cycles, the state (for example microstructural change due to heat treatment) of the investigated material can decisively influence the fatigue behavior. As a result, a lifetime prediction with known regulations such as the FKM guideline - Computational fatigue analysis for machine components, may be too conservative or the strength capacity of the material is overestimated. For the best possible ...

Comparisons were made between time waveforms and amplitude spectra for the two transducers. ABR waveforms, latencies, and thresholds were compared for the two transducers. Click-evoked ABR and behavioral thresholds were comparable for the two earphones. In addition, absolute response-component latencies differed by an amount that was equivalent to the travel time introduced by the insert earphones sound-delivery tube. Inter-peak latency differences were virtually identical. These findings suggest that the insert earphone is a viable transducer for clinical ABR evaluations. Further, a temporal ...

Over the last twenty years there has been a revolution in our understanding of the mechanisms of sound analysis in the normal cochlea. Along with this, the mechanisms associated with cochlear hearing loss are also much better understood. However, these improvements in our understanding have been mainly in terms of physiological mechanisms. This book emphasizes the perceptual changes associated with cochlear hearing loss and relates these to the underlying physiological mechanisms. This provides a theoretical framework for understanding and interpreting the perceptual changes. The results obtained with hearing-impaired people have important implications for theories of normal perception, especially in relation to loudness, temporal processing, and pitch perception. The data and theories surveyed are used to draw up guidelines for the design of signal-processing hearing aids to compensate for perceptual abnormalities.

Hearing screening should be conducted in a clinical or natural environment that is conducive to obtaining reliable screening results and that is free from auditory and visual distractions and interruptions. In addition, the location should allow for privacy and confidentiality.. Perform daily listening checks to rule out defects in major pure-tone screening components. Ambient noise levels may exceed ANSI standards for pure-tone threshold testing in audiometric test rooms (ANSI, 2013) but must be sufficiently low to allow accurate screening. A sound level meter, if available, may be used to establish maximum permissible noise levels at 25 dB HL for the earphone to be used during screening (i.e., supra-aural or insert earphones). However, when a sound level meter is not available, a biologic check is suitable.. ...

Sound can be measured as a change in pressure when sound waves reach the ear or a measuring device. Sound exposure is usually measured in decibels of sound pressure level (dB SPL), which is a measure of the sound pressure level relative to the lowest hearing threshold of the young, healthy ear set as 0 dB. The scale is logarithmic and a ten-fold increase in the sound pressure level measured corresponds to an increase by 20 dB SPL.

The amount by which the SNR exceeds the detection threshold, DT, is called the signal excess (SE):. SE (decibels) = SNR - DT = (SL - 2TL + TS - NL) - DT. If the SE is greater than 0 dB, then the decision is made that the target is present. If the SE is negative, the decision is that the target is not present.. If the detection threshold is set high (which is equivalent to assuming that the signal power is high relative to the noise) only strong targets will exceed the threshold and be detected. There will not be many false alarms in which noise is mistakenly decided to be the signal of interest; however, there may be many misses in which the signal, though present, is not detected. If the threshold is set low, weaker targets will be detected, but the number of false alarms will also increase.. The following figure shows the importance of setting the detection threshold. The top trace (a) shows three target echoes with different amplitudes. The middle trace (b) shows the noise. The bottom ...
This study assessed variability in the length and age compositions, longevity, length-at-age and rates of growth and mortality of the east Australian stout whiting Sillago robusta Stead, 1908 population harvested by demersal trawl fisheries. Sampling was done over 2 years and was spatially stratified across three depth strata between 11 and 90 m at two locations approximately 400 km apart. There were no consistent depth-related differences in length and age compositions, but the mean and median length and age of the population was greater at the lower latitude location. Age classes 2 and 3 years dominated samples in the north, and 1 and 2 years in the south. Observed longevity was 10 years in the north, and 6 years in the south. Mean length-at-age was not consistently different between sexes, years or locations, nor did the von Bertalanffy growth function differ significantly between sexes, even though females had a greater estimated L 8 (23.45 cm FL) compared to males (22.36 cm FL).

In the upper part of Figure 5 simulation results are shown for the MS-model with dissemination proportional to V2/3 and V1/3, the lower part shows the results for the GDR-model, again with a V2/3 and V1/3 dependency. For both models a variation of the growth characteristics with an artificially slewed down growth behaviour of the metastatic cells are calculated and included in the plots. For the GDR-model this growth behaviour was achieved by starting the metastatic growth process with the doubling rate of the time step the malignant cell has being disseminated. Taking the same generation time TG and error rate for mitosis as for the primary tumour, a reduced initial doubling rate consequently leads to a reduced maximal colony size of the metastases. The modified growth function for the MS-model was achieved by starting the metastatic growth just with the prolonged TG of the generation the cell was disseminated. The ageing process is inherited. These colonies will reach the same maximal size as ...

  • A reduction in the number of myelinated auditory nerve fibers leads to a reduced maximal firing rate of DCN principal cells, which cannot be restored by increasing auditory nerve fiber recruitment. (
  • As a consequence, each intracochlear electrode activates an inappropriately broad range of auditory nerve fibers and the number of independent channels that a CI user can perceive is thus reduced from a maximum of 22 physical electrodes to about 6-8 1 . (
  • Some leading theories include injured cochlear hair cells that discharge repetitively and stimulate auditory nerve fibers in a continuous cycle, spontaneous activity in individual auditory nerve fibers, hyperactivity of the auditory nuclei in the brain stem, or a reduction in the usual suppressive activity of the central auditory cortex on peripheral auditory nerve activity.4This article discusses the causes of subjective and objective tinnitus, and techniques used for evaluating tinnitus.

  • In auditory cortex, both groups showed N1 frequency-specific neural adaptation effects that similarly varied with the spectral variance in the stimulation, while N1 responses were overall larger for older than younger participants. (
  • Thus, the current findings show a dissociation of peripheral frequency selectivity and neural frequency specificity, but suggest that widened auditory filters are compensated for by a response gain in frequency-specific areas of auditory cortex. (
  • Finally, there was no relationship between auditory cortical activation and activation of the somatosensory cortex in the same slices, suggesting that the increases in auditory cortical activation were not attributable to a generalized hyperexcitable state in noise-exposed animals. (

  • The descending projection from the midbrain (IC) to the efferent system completes a functional loop that, combined with inputs from the L/MSR pathway, is hypothesized to maintain "sharp" supra-threshold hearing, reminiscent of visual mechanisms that regulate optical accommodation. (
  • Tinnitus has been related to hyperactivity in the central auditory pathway occurring weeks after loud sound exposure. (
  • We show that acoustic overexposure alters synaptic transmission originating from the auditory and the multisensory pathway within the DCN in different ways. (
  • These cellular mechanisms that contribute to decreased cellular excitability in the central auditory pathway are likely to represent early neurobiological markers of hearing loss and may suggest interventions to delay or stop the development of hyperactivity that has been associated with tinnitus. (
  • The dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) is one of the first relays within the central auditory pathway ( 12 ). (

  • The dorsal cochlear nucleus is the first site of multisensory convergence in mammalian auditory pathways. (
  • These results suggest the possible existence of subtle auditory deficit in normally hearing tinnitus patients, which may be an early sign of diseases that are only diagnosed after the onset of hearing loss. (
  • These data suggest that noise trauma can cause long-lasting changes in the auditory cortical physiology and may provide specific targets to ameliorate the effects of chronic tinnitus. (
  • This has led to the hypothesis that damage to peripheral auditory structures leads to central reorganization and that this maladaptive reorganization may lead to tinnitus. (
  • In patients who are discomforted by tinnitus and have no remediable cause, auditory masking may provide some relief. (
  • Bimodal auditory-somatosensory stimulation that induces LTD may hold promise for suppressing chronic tinnitus in patients. (
  • We delivered repeated bimodal auditory-somatosensory stimulation to the dorsal cochlear nucleus of guinea pigs with tinnitus, choosing a stimulus interval known to induce long-term depression (LTD). Twenty minutes per day of LTD-inducing bimodal (but not unimodal) stimulation reduced physiological and behavioral evidence of tinnitus in the guinea pigs after 25 days. (
  • Bimodal auditory-somatosensory stimulation that induces LTD in the dorsal cochlear nucleus may hold promise for suppressing chronic tinnitus, which reduces quality of life for millions of tinnitus sufferers worldwide. (
  • The development of the brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) was studied in mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos) embryos and hatchlings from 5-6 days before hatching through two days after hatching in response to tone pips of different frequencies. (
  • Widening of the auditory range in the direction of high frequencies on the 4th to 5th days of nest life was demonstrated. (

  • A complete audiogram was collected using auditory evoked potential techniques that included measurements of nine frequencies from 4 to 100 kHz presented as sinusoidally amplitude-modulated tones. (
  • The threshold of hearing is frequency-dependent and it has been shown that the ear's sensitivity is best at frequencies between 2 kHz and 5 kHz, where the threshold reaches as low as −9 dB SPL. (
  • Better results of FP for lower frequencies suggest that an increase in diameter of the prosthesis results in a greater improvement in the hearing threshold at low frequencies, while a decrease of diameter results in a greater improvement in the hearing threshold at high frequencies, as indicated by previous international studies. (
  • People's auditory threshold incresed by age, especially from high frequencies. (
  • The whole frequency threshold test would reveal early hearing injure in high frequencies. (
  • For clinical purposes, the hearing threshold is usually measured for single frequency tones at discrete frequencies from 500 Hz to 8,000 Hz, in octave or half-octave intervals, and reported in step sizes of 5 dB. (

  • An auditory evoked field (AEF) is a form neural activity that is induced by an auditory stimulus and recorded via magnetoencephalography, which is an equivalent of auditory evoked potential (AEP) recorded by electroencephalography. (
  • The earliest cortical components of AEF is equivalent to the middle latency response (MLR) of the EEG evoked potential, called the middle latency auditory evoked field (MLAEF), which occurs at 30 to 50 ms after the stimulus onset. (
  • At 100 ms after stimulus onset occurs the most prominent response in the late latency range, the M100, which corresponds to the N1 peak of the auditory long latency response (ALR) potential. (
  • Listener fatigue (also known as listening fatigue or ear fatigue) is a phenomenon that occurs after prolonged exposure to an auditory stimulus . (
  • Because human hearing is more sensitive to some frequency bands than others, thresholds vary depending on the frequency of the stimulus tone. (
  • The trial starts with the descending run, where a stimulus is presented at a level well above the expected threshold. (
  • In the ascending run, which comes after, the stimulus is first presented well below the threshold and then gradually increased in two decibel (dB) steps until the subject responds. (
  • Too large a step compromises accuracy of the measurement as the actual threshold may be just between two stimulus levels. (
  • 1975) from its appearance at a latency of 300 milliseconds and being the third major positive-voltage component in the late auditory evoked response series, subsequent research by Hall III (1992) has demonstrated that the P300 could normally occur anywhere between 250-400 milliseconds post-stimulus onset. (
  • The auditory brainstem response (ABR) is an acoustically evoked potential commonly used to determine hearing sensitivity in laboratory animals. (
  • This highly significant threshold effect (F(1,6) = 158.3403, p = 3.51 × 10(-22)) demonstrates a substantial difference between general anesthetics on auditory brainstem sensitivity. (
  • The entire range of auditory sensitivity was divided into three channels on the basis of the character of the age-related dynamics of the thresholds (two to nine days of life): low-frequency (0.3-1.6 kHz), middle-(1.5-4.0 kHz), and high-frequency (5.0-8.0 kHz). (
  • Development of vocalization, auditory sensitivity and acoustic communication in the Lusitanian toadfish Halobatrachus didactylus. (

  • A series of publications from our laboratory have demonstrated that CO elevates sensitivity to permanent NIHL such that noise exposures that normally produce no permanent auditory threshold shift yield profound loss if CO is present along with the noise [5-11]. (
  • The lower limit of hearing, where sound is just detectable, is referred to as the threshold of hearing (also known as absolute threshold, or absolute sensitivity). (
  • TTS is an increase in the auditory threshold (a decrease in hearing sensitivity) which manifests itself in a temporary hearing loss during which sounds are unclear or muffled. (
  • As with any type of hearing-related disorder, the related physiology is within the ear and central auditory system . (
  • The fly appears to overcome the acoustic disadvantage of its small size relative to the behaviorally salient wavelengths of the signal it must localize by possessing biomechanical innovations in its auditory periphery and by time and intensity coding features in its auditory afferents. (
  • In 2006, the U.S. Army proposed to update the MIL-STD 1474D to use the Auditory Hazard Assessment Algorithm for Humans (AHAAH) and discontinue using the peak sound pressure level, envelope duration and number of impulses. (
  • The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has conducted two separate evaluations of the data used to justify the AHAAH methodology and found that the use of the A-weighted equivalent energy L(Aeq8) was more suitable for the purposes of predicting the effects of temporary threshold shifts (TTS) both in humans and in chinchillas. (
  • The threshold of hearing in humans is 20 µPa (micropascals) = 2×10 −5 pascal (Pa). (
  • Several psychophysical methods can measure absolute threshold. (
  • More specifically, using a new psychophysical paradigm we investigate the effect of suprathreshold auditory motion on perceptions of visually defined biological motion. (
  • Frequency selectivity is commonly investigated using an auditory filter model, while frequency specificity is often investigated as neural adaptation of the N1 response in electroencephalography (EEG). (

  • Hearing threshold determination is often the primary interest. (
  • Although a number of studies have examined the effect of different anesthetics on evoked potential waveforms and growth functions, none have directly compared their effect on ABR hearing threshold estimates. (
  • The auditory evoked potential technique has been used for the past 30 years to evaluate the hearing ability of fish. (
  • Here, we compared the particle acceleration and pressure auditory thresholds of three species of fish with differing hearing specialisations, goldfish ( Carassius auratus , weberian ossicles), bigeye ( Pempheris adspersus , ligamentous hearing specialisation) and a third species with no swim bladder, the common triplefin ( Forstergyian lappillum ), using three different methods of determining particle acceleration. (
  • In terms of particle acceleration, all three fish species have similar hearing thresholds, but when expressed as pressure thresholds goldfish are the most sensitive, followed by bigeye, with triplefin the least sensitive. (
  • Here, changes in the slope of the frequency-threshold curve with hearing loss were closely mirrored by changes in the slope of the masking function. (
  • When the high-frequency slope of the frequency-threshold curve became shallower with hearing loss, the changes were not mirrored in the masking function, until the threshold was raised to 70-80 dB SPL. (
  • Paediatric specific clinical protocols for fitting hearing aids always recommend accurate characterisation of hearing thresholds in newborns. (

  • Implications for the effects of synaptopathy on control mechanisms hypothesized to influence supra-threshold hearing are discussed. (
  • This framework for understanding neural coding and control mechanisms for supra-threshold hearing suggests strategies for the design of novel hearing aid signal-processing and electrical stimulation patterns for cochlear implants. (
  • It is well established that exposure to loud sound causes damage to the cochlea and results in an elevation of hearing thresholds ( 1 ) often accompanied by a reduction of auditory nerve (AN) firing rate ( 2 ⇓ - 4 ). (

  • The absolute threshold of hearing (ATH) is the minimum loudness of a pure tone that an average ear with normal hearing can hear with no other sound present. (
  • Measurement of the absolute hearing threshold provides some basic information about our auditory system. (
  • The threshold of hearing is generally reported as the RMS sound pressure of 20 micropascals, corresponding to a sound intensity of 0.98 pW/m2 at 1 atmosphere and 25 °C. It is approximately the quietest sound a young human with undamaged hearing can detect at 1,000 Hz. (
  • The absolute threshold is defined statistically, often as an average of all obtained hearing thresholds. (
  • As there are no clear margins to 'hearing' and 'not hearing', the threshold for each run is determined as the midpoint between the last audible and first inaudible level. (
  • The subject's absolute hearing threshold is calculated as the mean of all obtained thresholds in both ascending and descending runs. (
  • While most research on amplification and cognitive function used hearing aids without auditory or cognitive training, emerging evidence shows that the combination of cochlear implantation and auditory and cognitive training may generate a different effect pattern. (

  • Reports of abnormal sensory function that span the visual, auditory, gustatory, and tactile domains reinforce the "multisensory" nature of sensory processing alterations in ASD (for review, see Rogers and Ozonoff, 2005 ), and emerging evidence suggests that abnormalities also extend to the selective integration of information across the different sensory modalities (i.e., multisensory integration - see Iarocci and McDonald, 2006 ).
