John Hopkins study reveals more than 20 million people are suffering from untreated hearing loss. Experts believe a large part of this is due to the associated costs of hearing aids and lack of insurance coverage.
Researchers have identified a gene involved in development of outer hair cells in the inner ear, leading to new hope for a cure for hereditary hearing loss.
Researchers have found that hard of hearing children whose parents engaged them in more conversations were likely to have stronger language skills than toddlers whose parents spoke with them less.
NIH Researchers are using a hearing testing device originally designed for NASA to conduct a hearing loss study with HIV-positive patients in Tanzania.
A new, fast-track genetic diagnosis for hearing loss has been developed at Tel Aviv University. The method uses exome deep sequencing to sequence hundreds of thousands of genes at a time.
Two new proteins have been discovered which are instrumental in the ear's ability to respond to sound vibrations. These proteins are also linked to Usher Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes hearing loss as well as balance and vision problems.
New tree frog research providing insight into how humans auditory systems discern overlapping voices in a noisy environment.
University of Northern Colorado faculty member Deanna Meinke earned an award from the Illinois Academy of Audiology recognizing her hearing loss research in the early detection and prevention of noise induced hearing loss among veterans.
Genetic research in Germany and England recently discovered a new class of gene, which when mutated, turns out to be a reason for early hearing loss.
Viagra, a common drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, has again been shown to cause hearing loss.
Film director Ken Loach has officially opened a new research lab which explores pioneering ways of improving communication between parents and children with hearing difficulties. The Family Lab is part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Unit in Hearing.
Researchers have tracked a cell-to-cell signaling pathway that designates the future location of the ear's sensory organs in embryonic mice. The results suggest an avenue for further investigation in restoring hearing loss from nerve damage.
Your inner ear rootlet is more critical to healthy hearing than anyone would have first guessed.
One of the reasons for hearing loss is the genetic mutation of a new class of gene called microRNA which causes fewer cochlear hair-like projections that die at a faster rate.
New research has discovered a new gene linked to inherited deafness, which could mean that more families will be able to identify the cause of their hearing loss.
University of Northern Colorado Professor Deanna Meinke, AuD., has received the "Michael Beall Threadgill" Award from the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA). Her work has implications for the workers and employers of America who contend with hazardous noise on a daily basis.
