Max Planck Institute researchers report deaf children who receive cochlear implants are better at learning words when introduced to spoken word than children with normal hearing.
Researchers have identified a new protein, CIB2, that is key to helping the auditory system to turn soundwaves into meaningful brain signals. Mutations of this gene leave people unable to convert the soundwaves into signals that the brain can interpret, and are deaf.
A new study reports that the neural architecture of the auditory cortex is virtually identical in those who are profoundly deaf and those who can hear.
Researchers report a new discovery may help to find treatments more quickly for those with SSD.
According to a new study, the absence of the pejvakin molecule appears to be responsible for noise induced hearing loss.
A group of biomedical students have developed a therapeutic toy which they believe will help children with auditory disabilities to develop their vocal chords.
A new study reports new nerve cell connections on sensory cells could contribute to age related hearing loss.
