  • The medical model of deafness is viewed by advocates for the deaf[who? (wikipedia.org)
  • The cultural model of deafness arises from, but is not limited to, deaf people themselves, especially congenitally deaf people whose primary language is the sign language of their nation or community, as well as their children, families, friends and other members of their social networks. (wikipedia.org)
  • The National Center on Deafness is an American educational institution aimed at facilitating the education of deaf students. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1974 the Center on Deafness initiated a "Visiting Deaf Professor" lectureship, and deaf teachers from other colleges and universities were invited to spend a semester at CSUN to teach, study, and write. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1976 the Center on Deafness initiated a publication series: Selected Readings in the Integration of Deaf Students at CSUN, Sign Language Theater and Deaf Theater: New Definitions and Directions. (wikipedia.org)
  • corneal
  • For this reason it is used to remove corneal opacities, deafness due to thickening of the membrane, stricture of the oesophagus and hypertrophy of the pylorus, it has also been successful in the treatment of adhesive parametritis. (yourdictionary.com)
  • Keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness syndrome (also known as "Erythrokeratodermia progressiva Burns," "Ichthyosiform erythroderma, corneal involvement, and deafness," and "KID syndrome,") presents at birth/infancy and is characterized by pregressive corneal opacification, either mild generalized hyperkeratosis or discrete erythematous plaques, and neurosensory deafness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genetics
  • This special issue about the Genetics of Deafness contributes to these studies by describing new mutations in genes important in hearing, by exploring the clinical implications of treatment based on genotype as well as reviewing of the literature. (hindawi.com)
  • mutation
  • Diabetes mellitus and deafness (DAD) or maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) is a subtype of diabetes which is caused from a point mutation at position 3243 in human mitochondrial DNA, which consists of a circular genome. (wikipedia.org)
  • distinguish
  • The social model of deafness is a part of a more comprehensive and far-reaching social model of disability whose advocates seek to distinguish and distance from the medical model. (wikipedia.org)
  • overcome
  • Cochlear implants can stimulate the auditory nerve directly to restore some hearing, but the sound quality isn't that of a normal hearing ear, suggesting that deafness cannot be fully overcome by medical devices. (wikipedia.org)
  • For this very reason, the question as to whether deafness is physical impairment or personal tragedy to be overcome is secondary to medical doctors and health professions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Separate
  • The first is that segregation of the distinct streams composing an auditory scene requires directed attention, meaning that the change-deafness effects observed in the study would reflect a difficulty in perceiving separate auditory scenes in the absence of attentional cues. (wikipedia.org)
  • A second alternative is that complex auditory scenes are initially perceived as consisting of separate streams, and thus change-deafness effects are the result of limits in encoding and storing multiple sets of auditory information for comparison with a subsequent scene. (wikipedia.org)
  • evidence
  • Evidence that attention influences change deafness has been observed across a variety of auditory paradigms, including those consisting of semantic language and natural sounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • describes
  • A case published in 2001 describes the patient as 20-year-old man referred for cochlear implants because of bilateral deafness following a motorcycle accident two years earlier. (wikipedia.org)
  • possibilities
  • There are now at least two possibilities for the development of a cure for deafness. (newscientist.com)
  • It is important to note the ambiguity concerning the mechanism that produces the effect of attention on change-deafness, and this study suggests two possibilities. (wikipedia.org)
  • major
  • Within a short time, booked in for a big operation, I was facing some major lifestyle changes, deafness, facial paralysis and loss of balance. (smashwords.com)
  • results
  • Mitochondrial nonsyndromic deafness, which results from changes to the DNA in mitochondria, occurs in fewer than 1% of cases in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • In both cases, inattention to the relevant segment of the auditory scene results in more occurrences of change-deafness, where attention may be a function of structural components of the auditory information, or cues built into the experimental design. (wikipedia.org)
  • cannot
  • Patients with cortical deafness cannot hear any sounds, that is, they are not aware of sounds including non-speech, voices, and speech sounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Issues
  • An understanding of the mechanisms underlying change deafness could offer insight on issues such as the completeness of our representation of the auditory environment, the limitations of the auditory perceptual system, and the relationship between the audtitory system and memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • likely
  • In white cats with mixed-coloured eyes (odd-eyed cats), it has been found that deafness is more likely to affect the ear on the blue-eyed side. (wikipedia.org)

  • speech
  • The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), a member of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, is mandated to conduct and support biomedical and behavioral research and research training in the normal and disordered processes of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice, speech, and language. (wikipedia.org)
  • thought
  • The phenomenon of change deafness is thought to be related to the interactions between high and low level processes that produce conscious experiences of auditory soundscapes. (wikipedia.org)
