  1. 1. Pitch, loudness and frequency selectivity in low-frequency hearing loss

    Author : Jonas Brännström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; frequency coding; Cochlea; frequency selectivity; hearing fluctuation; inner ear pressure; long-term measurement; Ménière s disease; low-frequency hearing loss; loudness; pitch.;

    Abstract : Patients with Ménière's disease and cochlear hydrops show fluctuating low-frequency hearing loss (FLFHL). At present these changes are followed as patients' subjective reports and occasional measurements. READ MORE

  2. 2. A digital filterbank hearing aid

    Author : Thomas Lunner; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Digital signal processing hearing aids may provide possibilities for new signal processing strategies to compensate for hearing loss. However, to be practically usable in a headworn hearing aid the digital circuitry needs to fulfil requirements of low power consumption, low supply voltage and small size. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hearing by Bone Conduction. Physical and Physiological Aspects

    Author : Stefan Stenfelt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Bone conduction as a phenomenon, physically and physiologically, is of vital importance in both the diagnosis of a hearing impairment and the development of bone conduction hearing aids. Understanding hearing by bone conduction is difficult, involving sound transmission by wave motion in a complex geometrical structure of layered bone covered with soft tissue and cartilage, finally received by the highly delicate cochlea.

  4. 4. The Human Cochlea and Cochlear Implantation : Morphological Characteristics and Clinical Correlations

    Author : Nadine Schart-Morén; Helge Rask-Andersen; Elina Mäki-Torkko; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cochlear implantation; micro-CT; synchrotron; facial nerve stimulation; hearing preservation; round window;

    Abstract : The most common sensory deficit in the world is sensorineural hearing loss. Cochlear implantation (CI) can majorly contribute to restore hearing, not only in patients with severe to profound hearing loss, but also in hearing-impaired patients with residual low-frequency hearing.

  5. 5. Hair cell and organ of corti responses to normal and intense acoustic stimulation

    Author : Anders Fridberger; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cochlea; outer hair cells; calcium; pressure changes; micromechanics; noise-induced hearing loss; fluorescent indicators; laser interferometry; temporal bone preparation; guinea pig;

    Abstract : The principal aims of the studies described in this thesis were to develop an in vitro model for studying acoustic overstimulation at the cellular level, to define the electrical and mechanical response characteristics of the perfused temporal bone preparation, and to investigate the effects of intense sound stimulation on the calcium levels of the hair cells in the intact hearing organ. In the in vitro model for acoustic overstimulation, isolated cochlear outer hair cells were subjected to a pressure jet emanating from a glass micropipette aimed at the cell body. READ MORE
