  1. 1. Hearing in advanced age Epidemiological, pathophysiological, and diagnostic perspectives from the Gothenburg H70 Birth Cohort Studies

    Author : Hanna Göthberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Age-related hearing loss; Older adult; Hearing decline; Peripheral auditory function; Central auditory function; Audiological research;

    Abstract : The population aged 80 and above is expected to increase in the future resulting in an anticipated rise in health care demands. Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is described as the third most common health condition associated with ageing. ARHL often results in communication difficulties and social isolation and is associated with cognitive decline. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hearing in advanced age. Epidemiological, pathophysiological and diagnostic perspectives from the Gothenburg H70 Birth Cohort Studies

    Author : Hanna Göthberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hearing Loss; Aged; Audiology; Age-related hearing loss; Hearing decline; Peripheral auditory function; Central auditory function; Audiological research;

    Abstract : Globalt förväntas antalet personer över 80 år att öka i framtiden. Detta bidrar förmodligen till ett ökat vårdbehov av åldersrelaterade tillstånd och sjukdomar, varav åldersrelaterad hörselnedsättning (ARHL) rankas som den tredje vanligaste. READ MORE

  3. 3. The diagnosis and protection of the auditory peripheral system

    Author : Mao Li Duan; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Cochlea; inner hair cell; outer hair cell; glutamate; post-synaptic receptor; auditory brainstem response; forward masking; noise trauma; hearing loss;

    Abstract : The main focus of this thesis is on the diagnosis and prevention of peripheral hearing loss. An auditory evoked response measure (forward masking) was developed that specifically tests the function of the inner hair cells, independently of the outer hair cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Circadian rhythms in the auditory system

    Author : Vasiliki Basinou; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Circadian clocks have been found in numerous cell types and tissues of the body, allowing organisms to coordinate their daily biological functions. They generate cycles of behavioral and physiological processes with a period length of ~24h, which are synchronized to the rotation of the Earth and the subsequent daily changes in illumination, temperature and humidity.

  5. 5. The role of estrogen receptors in the auditory system

    Author : Konstantina Charitidi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Both laboratory and clinical studies have previously demonstrated estrogenic effects on auditory function. The overall scope of this study was to investigate the physiological and molecular involvement of estrogens and estrogen receptors alpha (ERα) and beta (ERβ) in hearing physiology. READ MORE
