Binaural beats are processed by the brain, and a new sound is created and considered to be an audio hallucination.
Researcher with Rockefeller University studies how to use optical waves to maximize cochlear amplification.
Research group conducts study to examine how brain rhythms affect a person's ability to listen.
New study published in the "Journal of Neuroscience" reveals the interaction between the brain and auditory system to result in reactions to unpleasant sounds.
Research shows premature babies could benefit from non-pharmaceutical treatments such as auditory stimulation.
Frank Russo, developer of the Emoti-Chair, which allows hard-of-hearing people to hear music through vibrations, has received a grant to further his research into how people perceive emotional communication.

In a recent study, men were found to perform better localizing sounds in situations where background noise was present. This finding may be related to a mechanism in the brain that helps with attention.
GUMC neuroscientists have found neurons in the brains of bats that seem to shush other neurons when relevant communications sounds come in and is a process that may be working in humans as well.
A new study shows that our brains are wired so we can better hear ourselves speak. The findings may be helpful in better understanding some aspects of auditory hallucinations, such as those experienced by people who suffer from schizophrenia.

The House Ear Institute (HEI) announced the appointment of Neil Segil, Ph.D., as Executive Vice President of Research and a new division that will increase collaborative research between HEI researchers and House Clinic physicians.
The phrase “perk up your ears” made more sense last year after scientists discovered how the quietest sounds are amplified in the cochlea before being transmitted to the brain.
A team of University of Oregon researchers have isolated an independent processing channel of synapses inside the brain's auditory cortex that deals specifically with shutting off sound processing at appropriate times. The new finding could lead to new, distinctly targeted therapies such as improved hearing aids.
A University of British Columbia study found that people hear with their skin as well as with their ears. Our brain integrates input from both our ears and our skin for hearing abilities.
