Google Doodle transformed its logo into a sound wave in honor of Heinrich Hertz's birthday. Hertz is known as the pioneer in electromagnetic wave research, which has drastically altered the way we understand hearing, hearing loss and modern-day hearing aids.
Study finds inflammation of the cochlea is linked to hearing loss in people with NOMID.
Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital to conduct first FDA-approved sensorineural hearing loss treatment using stem cells.
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 study finds that searching for health information on the Internet poses multiple communication barriers for the culturally Deaf, who use American Sign Language as their first language. These barriers can seriously compromise their health.
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.
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.
A new study indicates that hearing loss, even mild hearing loss, can lead to brain atrophy in adults. Treatments, such as hearing aids, may help slow down this decline.
Two new team members have joined the Ida Institute: Timothy Cooke as Web Content Editor and Ena Nielsen as Project Manager.
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.
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.
Researchers are investigating how to help people with cochlear implants get more enjoyment from listening to music.
New tree frog research providing insight into how humans auditory systems discern overlapping voices in a noisy environment.
A recent Danish study reveals that traffic noise increases the likelihood of having a stroke in people over 65.
Researchers in Australia have found that patients suffering from hearing loss which began during infancy and childhood could benefit from a transplant of stem cells from their nose.
New hearing loss research has revealed that a novel molecular mechanism that underlies deafness is caused by a mutation of microRNA called miR-96. The discovery could provide the basis for treating progressive hearing loss and deafness.
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.
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 at the University of Minnesota Medical School have gained insight into how different types of age related hearing loss may occur in humans. The discovery could eventually help physicians develop drugs to combat progressive hearing loss.
