- Slope of PI Function Is Not 10%-per-dB in Noise for All Noises and for All Patients. CHASIN, MARSHALL // Hearing Review;Oct2013, Vol. 20 Issue 11, p12
This article discusses how directional hearing aid microphones and assistive listening devices have benefited people with hearing loss. The author reveals that such devices were able to help some patients communicate better in a difficult listening situation. The author reveals, however, that...
- Does Non-linear Frequency Compression (NFC) Work for Adults? Jones, Christine // Audiology Online;May2014, p1
The article provides an answer to a question regarding the suitability of the non-linear frequency compression (NFC) for adults.
- Should I Apply Non-linear Frequency Compression for Mild Hearing Losses? Jones, Christine // Audiology Online;Jul2014, p1
The article provides an answer to a question on the applicability of non-linear frequency compression (NFC) on mild hearing loss.
- Higher-Level Processing and Aided Speech-Understanding in Older Adults. Humes, Larry E. // Hearing Review;Spring2013 International Edition, p10
The article discusses the speech understanding problem faced by adults and the effect of hearing aid to enhance hearing. Sensorineural and cognitive factors result in inaudibility high frequency components and increase in cochlear pathology. It was concluded that older adults are not able to...
- How Long Before a Patient Receives Maximum Benefit from Non-Linear Frequency Compression? Jones, Christine // Audiology Online;Sep2014, p1
The article provides an answer to the question of how long will it take for a patient to receive maximum benefit from non-linear frequency compression (NFC).
- Cochlear implant and hearing aid: a new approach to optimizing the fitting in this bimodal situation. Keilmann, Annerose M.; Bohnert, Andrea M.; Gosepath, Jan; Mann, Wolf J. // European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology;Dec2009, Vol. 266 Issue 12, p1879
More and more patients with residual hearing on the contralateral side are becoming candidates for cochlear implants (CI) surgery due to increasing CI. The major benefits of regular binaural hearing are spatial hearing, localization, and signal source discrimination in both quiet and noisy...
- BACK TO BASICS. Bell Labs and the Case of the Missing Fundamental. CHASIN, MARSHALL // Hearing Review;Jan2014, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p12
The article focuses on researchers Miller and Licklider's request to information technology firm Bell Labs to define the best frequency response for telephones. The researchers' work centered on the higher frequency end and they are questioning Bell Labs as they found that phone systems has an...
- Dead Regions in the Cochlea: Diagnosis, Perceptual Consequences, and Implications for the Fitting of Hearing Aids. Moore, Brian C. J. // Trends in Amplification;2001, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p1
Hearing impairment is often associated with damage to the hair cells in the cochlea. Sometimes there may be complete loss of function of inner hair cells (IHCs) over a certain region of the cochlea; this is called a "dead region". The region can be defined in terms of the range of characteristic...
- Audiometric Correlates of the Unaided APHAB. Cox, Robyn M.; Alexander, Genevieve C.; Gray, Ginger A. // Journal of the American Academy of Audiology;Sep2003, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p361
The Abbreviated Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (APHAB) is a self-report questionnaire that is used to quantify the impact of a hearing problem on an individual's daily life. In this investigation, the relationships were explored between typical clinical audiometric data and the four subscale...
