To evaluate the influence of auditory cues on postural sway in normal-hearing (NH) individuals, hearing-impaired individuals with vestibular impairment (HIVL), or hearing-impaired (HI) individuals wit...
Hearing impairment goes with speech perception difficulties, presumably not only because of poor hearing sensitivity but also because of altered central auditory processing. Critical herein is tempora...
To investigate the correlation between age-related hearing loss and cognitive impairment. 201 elderly patients, who were admitted to the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of Peking University People'...
Hearing impairment (HI) is common in aging adults. Aldosterone, insulin-like growth factor (IGF1), and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) have been identified as potentially protective of hearin...
The objective of this pilot work is to determine the role of central and peripheral visions in explicit attention processes (saccade planning) in the case of visual impairment.
Hearing loss is an established independent risk factor for dementia. Likewise, recent research demonstrated cognitive deficits in subjects with vestibular loss. However, in these studies d...
This is a 12-months’ randomized clinical trial that aims at studying the benefit of bilateral hearing aids in hearing impaired patients suffering from a slight to moderate stage Alzheime...
Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in veterans. The decreased ability to communicate is troubling in itself, but the strong association of hearing loss with functio...
The investigators will conduct a small pilot study that will randomize ~ 40 70-84 year-old adults with hearing loss to best-practices hearing rehabilitative treatment (hearing assessment, ...

The teaching or training of those individuals with hearing disability or impairment.
The study of hearing and hearing impairment.
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
