Restoration of Spectral Resolution With Hearing-aid Amplification

Adults with hearing loss are more vulnerable to interference from background noise than adults with normal hearing. Despite the fact that the ability to extract speech information imbedded in background noise requires decoding differences in level across frequency (spectral information), few studies have addressed the extent to which spectral information …

Phase N/A

Home Test of New Sound Processor

The purpose of this clinical investigation is to test a new Sound Processor (SP) to compare hearing performance of the new Sound Processor with unaided hearing and Baha 5 SP in adult subjects and to investigate which device (new Sound Processor versus Baha 5) the subjects prefer.

Efficacy of a Coupler-based Fitting Approach for Experienced Users Receiving Replacement Hearing Aids

In the VA system, hearing loss is the second-most common service-connected condition affecting 933,182 Veterans, exceeded only by tinnitus which affects 1,121,709 Veterans (data from Veterans Benefit Report for Fiscal Year 2016). In FY 2016, the VA dispensed 750,075 hearing aids at a net procurement of nearly $270 million (report …

Addressing Barriers to Adult Hearing Healthcare

Age-related hearing loss is the third-most common chronic condition affecting older adults in the US (data from Healthy People 2020 US Dept of Health and Human Services). This study aims to improve the understanding of attitudes, barriers and facilitators needed to improve hearing health care delivery. Two study cohorts of …

Music Appreciation After Cochlear Implantation

Cochlear implants are medical devices that restore a remarkable degree of hearing to people who would otherwise be profoundly deaf. These devices generally restore enough hearing that recipients can understand spoken speech even in noisy environments. However, most recipients express dissatisfaction with music. This proposal centers on understanding the challenges …

Phase N/A

Localization and Mismatch Negativity

Sound localization is the primary function of binaural hearing and facilitates speech recognition in noise. In case of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss, speech recognition in noise requires a constant adaptation of the head position to compensate for deafness. There is a significant impact of these deficits for socio-professional integration …

Phase N/A

Restauration of the Auditory and Cognitive Functions in Cochlear Implanted Deaf Children in fNIRS

When confronted with a severe to profound congenital bilateral hearing loss, cochlear implantation is considered to be the preferential treatment method as it restaures auditory function and enables language acquisition for communication purposes. When cochlear implantation is done before 2 and a half years old, better results are obtained in …

Benefits of Tablet-based Serious Games to Promote Speech Production in Young Children With Hearing Disabilities

Learning to speak is a major challenge for children with hearing impairments. Nowadays, special devices such as conventional hearing aids, bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) or cochlear implants (CI) allow successful rehabilitation of patients with hearing disabilities. To obtain maximum benefit from these technical aids, instrumented hearing impaired children require specific …
