• tinnitus
  • Noise at play is unregulated, and with sound levels in the average nightclub exceeding 100 decibels, you get your daily noise dose (accompanied by a bad dose of tinnitus - "ringing in the ears") in less than half an hour. (lovemusicpass.org)
  • Besides feeling fullness and muffled hearing, you might also experience popping, pain or tinnitus (ringing in the ears), or have difficulty maintaining balance. (aarp.org)
  • 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)
  • Tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) is a form of habituation therapy designed to help people who suffer from tinnitus, a ringing, buzzing, hissing, or other sound in the ears when no external sound is present. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been proposed that tinnitus is caused by mechanisms that generate abnormal neural activity, specifically one mechanism called discordant damage (dysfunction) of outer and inner hair cells of the cochlea. (wikipedia.org)
  • The patient is taught the basic knowledge about the auditory system and its function, the mechanism of tinnitus generation and the annoyance associated with tinnitus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sensorineural
  • Sensorineural (pronounced: sen-so-ree- nyour -ul) hearing loss results from damage to the inner ear (cochlea) or the auditory nerve. (kidshealth.org)
  • Other decrements in auditory perception caused by sensorineural hearing loss, such as abnormal spectral and temporal processing, and which may negatively affect speech perception, are more difficult to compensate for using digital signal processing and in some cases may be exacerbated by the use of amplification. (wikipedia.org)
  • amplification
  • The amplification may be powered by the movement of their hair bundles, or by an electrically driven motility of their cell bodies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Calcium ion influx plays an important role for the hair cells to adapt to the amplification of the signal. (wikipedia.org)
  • If you have excessive gain in the central auditory system, it could result in the over-amplification of sound or even make silence sound like noise," he says. (buffalo.edu)
  • sensory
  • The retina contains several layers of cells, but the actual sensory work is done by two kinds of photoreceptor cells in the deepest layer. (dana.org)
  • It is affected by the closing mechanism of the mechanical sensory ion channels at the tips of the hair bundles. (wikipedia.org)
  • The auditory system is the sensory system for the sense of hearing. (wikipedia.org)
  • It includes both the sensory organs (the ears) and the auditory parts of the sensory system. (wikipedia.org)
  • damage to the inner ear
  • It turns out that the central auditory system can compensate for significant damage to the inner ear by turning up its volume control, partially overcoming the deficiency, explains lead author Richard Salvi, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Communicative Disorders and Sciences and director of UB's Center for Hearing and Deafness. (buffalo.edu)
  • system
  • Your brain has a similar noise-cancellation system that works by comparing the mixture of sound reaching the two ears, cancelling some of the noise and leaving the signal more audible. (lovemusicpass.org)
  • The auditory system transforms mechanical energy-sound waves-into nerve impulses. (dana.org)
  • Hair cells within the cochlea are the receptors of the auditory system. (dana.org)
  • The system of human auditory allows the body to interpret and collect sound waves into meaningful messages. (wordpress.com)
  • The effect of this system is to non-linearly amplify quiet sounds more than large ones so that a wide range of sound pressures can be reduced to a much smaller range of hair displacements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Individual hearing range varies according to the general condition of a human's ears and nervous system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since CASA serves to model functionality parts of the auditory system, it is necessary to view parts of the biological auditory system in terms of known physical models. (wikipedia.org)
  • The auditory system uses several cues for sound source localization, including time- and level-differences (or intensity-difference) between both ears, spectral information, timing analysis, correlation analysis, and pattern matching. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hearing
  • As you age - especially if you've been exposed to frequent loud noises - you might have presbycusis, a type of gradual hearing loss caused by the death of hair cells in the cochlea, in your inner ear. (aarp.org)
  • The inner part of the ear I responsible for hearing and equilibrium through the receptor cells found in it. (wordpress.com)
  • Damage to these hair cells results in decreased hearing sensitivity, and because the inner ear hair cells cannot regenerate, this damage is permanent. (wikipedia.org)
  • While hearing sensitivity of mammals is similar to that of other classes of vertebrates, without functioning outer hair cells, the sensitivity decreases by approximately 50 dB[citation needed]. (wikipedia.org)
  • Outer hair cells extend the hearing range to about 200 kHz in some marine mammals. (wikipedia.org)
  • A car won't run well if you remove half of those spark plugs, but people can still present with normal hearing thresholds if they've lost half or even three-quarters of their inner hair cells. (buffalo.edu)
  • Most age-related hearing loss is actually due to a combination of one or more of these factors (hair cell changes being the most common). (hollandsentinel.com)
  • They may frequently ask people to repeat themselves, play the TV loudly, have difficulty hearing when they talk on the phone, or may complain of ringing in their ears. (hollandsentinel.com)
  • Age-related hearing loss usually affects both ears, although the hearing loss is often more pronounced on one side. (hollandsentinel.com)
  • Hearing aids receive, process and then amplify sound, allowing the patient to better interpret what they hear, especially speech. (hollandsentinel.com)
  • Hearing loss may occur in one or both ears. (wikipedia.org)
  • the hearing aid is able to sufficiently amplify sound to account for the attenuation caused by the conductive component. (wikipedia.org)
  • hairs
  • Outside the aircraft (not recommended) jet noise can reach an ear-thumping 120 decibels, literally enough to shake the hairs off your hair cells. (lovemusicpass.org)
  • perception
  • Important model of pitch perception by unifying 2 schools of pitch theory: Place theories (emphasizing the role of resolved harmonics) Temporal theories (emphasizing the role of unresolved harmonics) The correlogram is generally computed in the time domain by autocorrelating the simulated auditory nerve firing activity to the output of each filter channel. (wikipedia.org)
  • Auditory perception Ability to identify, interpret, and attach meaning to sound. (wikipedia.org)
  • receptor
  • Instead, the influx of positive ions from the endolymph in the scala media depolarizes the cell, resulting in a receptor potential. (wikipedia.org)
