Language: English. Abstract: This article discusses a recent study conducted by German researchers that examined cochlear implants in 26 seniors aged 65 to 80 with emphasis on preoperative findings, perioperative complications, and postoperative speech perception. Among the final conclusions the researchers report no significant differences in similarly resting results when they compared their findings with younger recipients, ages 18-50.

Hearing Sensitivity: Hormone That Helps Fish To Mate May

Affect Hearing In Women.

Author(s): ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Source: ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. 14(41):20. October 2004. Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. 610-278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: www.advanceweb.com. Language: EN. Abstract: Without enough estrogen-like-hormone in their systems, female plainfin midshipman fish turn a deaf ear to the alluring love songs of the males. A similar steroid-sensitive response could underlie changes in the hearing sensitivity of people, according to a group of biologists at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. The fish study was supported in part by the National Institutes of Health. This article discusses the details of the study and its findings. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Hearing Research.

Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. 610-278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: http://www.advanceforspanda.com/. Language: English. Abstract: On May 5, 2004 the World Council on Hearing Health (WCHH),

47

in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM), released the results of its Annual Hearing Healthy Kids State Report Card on Infant Hearing Screenings. The report card cited a 64.8 percent increase in newborn hearing screenings in the last five years. Data released in 1999 indicated that only 25 percent of U.S. newborns were screened for hearing loss that year. This article presents data from the WCHH report. Subject Category: Hearing.

Left and Right Ears Are Not Created Equal.

Author(s): ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Source: ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. 14(50):12. December 2004. Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. 610-278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: www.advanceweb.com. Language: English. Abstract: This article summarizes previous and current research studies that indicate auditory processing differences begin in the ear and not from a preferred side of the brain-as previously thought by the scientific community for decades. As stated in the article, the new research could hold profound implications for the rehabilitation of people with hearing loss in one or both ears and help doctors enhance speech and language development in newborns with hearing impairments.

Vitamin E and Hearing Loss: Effective for Sudden Onset.

Author(s): ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Source: ADVANCE for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. 14(48):12. November 2004. Availability: Available from Merion Publications, Inc. 2900 Horizon Drive, Box 61556, King of Prussia, PA 19406-0956. 610-278-1400. E-mail: advance@merion.com. Website: www.advanceweb.com. Language: English. Abstract: According to this article, vitamin E may be effective in restoring hearing after sudden onset hearing loss of unknown origin. This preliminary finding was reported recently by researchers in the Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Technion- Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel. The study was done to determine whether the use of antioxidants in idiopathic sudden hearing loss could improve the outcome of sudden onset hearing loss of unknown origin, based on the suggestion that they might prevent cisplatin-induced ototoxicity, reduce the incidence of deafness after bacterial meningitis, and protect against noise-induced hearing loss. The recovery rate for the study group receiving vitamin E was found to be better than the control group who received other treatments. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Hearing Loss Treatment.

Language: English. Abstract: This article provides details from a recent study conducted on 495 cases of patients with sudden deafness by a team of researchers from the Federal University of Sao Paulo-Paulista Medical School in Brazil. The researchers utilized MRI in a detailed study of the structures of the inner ear, the internal auditory meatus (IAM), and the cerebellopontine angle-the most likely location of an acoustic neuroma. The team presented its findings at the Annual Meeting and Oto Expo of the
