Adaptation to noise in amplitude modulation detection without the medial olivocochlear reflex
Publication date: Available online 22 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Miriam I. Marrufo-Pérez, Almudena Eustaquio-Martín, Milagros J. Fumero, José M. Gorospe, Rubén Polo, Auxiliadora Gutiérrez Revilla, Enrique A. Lopez-PovedaABSTRACTThe detection of amplitude modulation (AM) in quiet or in noise improves when the AM carrier is preceded by noise, an effect that has been attributed to the medial olivocochlear reflex (MOCR). We investigate whether this improvement can occur without the...

Uncertainty in location, level and fundamental frequency results in informational masking in a vowel discrimination task for young and elderly subjects
Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Lena Eipert, Antonia Selle, Georg M. KlumpAbstractInformational masking (IM) is defined as the compromised ability to perceive and analyze signals from a single sound source in a cacophony of sounds from other sources even if the excitation patterns produced by these signals in the auditory periphery are well separated from those produced by the sounds from the other sources. IM that causes an elevation of discrimination...

Impact of Room Acoustic Parameters on Speech and Music Perception Among Participants With Cochlear Implants
Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Bernhard Eurich, Thomas Klenzner, Michael OehlerAbstractObjectivesBesides numerous other factors, listening experience with cochlear implants is substantially impaired by room acoustics. Even for persons without hearing impairment, the perception of auditory scenes, for example, concerning speech intelligibility, acoustic quality or audibility, is considerably influenced by room acoustics. For CI users, complex listening...

The use of animal models to study cell transplantation in neuropathic hearing loss
Publication date: Available online 19 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Leila Abbas, Marcelo N. RivoltaAbstractAuditory neuropathy (AN) is a form of sensorineural deafness specifically affecting the conduction of the nerve impulse from the cochlear hair cells to the auditory centres of the brain. As such, the condition is a potential clinical target for 'cell replacement therapy', in which a functioning auditory nerve is regenerated by transplanting an appropriated neural progenitor.In...

Translating animal models to human therapeutics in noise-induced and age-related hearing loss
Publication date: June 2019Source: Hearing Research, Volume 377Author(s): Sharon G. Kujawa, M. Charles LibermanAbstractAcquired sensorineural hearing loss is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases, and aging and acoustic overexposure are common contributors. Decades of study in animals and humans have clarified the cellular targets and perceptual consequences of these forms of hearing loss, and preclinical studies have led to the development of therapeutics designed to slow, prevent or reverse...

Tone language experience-dependent advantage in pitch representation in brainstem and auditory cortex is maintained under reverberation
Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Ananthanarayan Krishnan, Chandan H. Suresh, Jackson T. GandourAbstractLong-term language and music experience enhances neural representation of temporal attributes of pitch in the brainstem and auditory cortex in favorable listening conditions. Herein we examine whether brainstem and cortical pitch mechanisms—shaped by long-term language experience—maintain this advantage in the presence of reverberation-induced degradation...

Circadian integration of inflammation and glucocorticoid actions: Implications for the cochlea
Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Heela Sarlus, Jacopo Fontana, Evangelia Tserga, Inna Meltser, Christopher R. Cederroth, Barbara CanlonAbstractAuditory function has been shown to be influenced by the circadian system. Increasing evidence point towards the regulation of inflammation and glucocorticoid actions by circadian rhythms in the cochlea. Yet, how these three systems (circadian, immune and endocrine) converge to control auditory function remains...

The upper frequency limit for the use of phase locking to code temporal fine structure in humans: A compilation of viewpoints
Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Eric Verschooten, Shihab Shamma, Andrew J. Oxenham, Brian C.J. Moore, Philip X. Joris, Michael G. Heinz, Christopher J. PlackAbstractThe relative importance of neural temporal and place coding in auditory perception is still a matter of much debate. The current article is a compilation of viewpoints from leading auditory psychophysicists and physiologists regarding the upper frequency limit for the use of neural phase...

Sensor-actuator component for a Floating Mass Transducer-based fully implantable hearing aid
Publication date: Available online 13 March 2019Source: Hearing ResearchAuthor(s): Till Moritz Eßinger, Martin Koch, Matthias Bornitz, Nikoloz Lasurashvili, Marcus Neudert, Thomas ZahnertAbstractWe propose a novel system based on the Floating Mass Transducer (FMT) to be used as the active component of a fully implantable, Vibrant Soundbridge-like middle ear implant. The new system replaces the external microphone used in the currently available design with an implantable piezoelectric sensor that...

The search for noise-induced cochlear synaptopathy in humans: Mission impossible?

Lopez-Poveda, Chris Plack, Roland Schaette, Sarah Verhulst, Barbara CanlonAbstractAnimal studies demonstrate that noise exposure can permanently damage the synapses between inner hair cells and auditory nerve fibers, even when outer hair cells are intact and there is no clinically relevant permanent threshold shift. Synaptopathy disrupts the...

A time-efficient multi-deviant paradigm to determine the effects of gap duration on the mismatch negativity
Publication date: June 2019Source: Hearing Research, Volume 377Author(s): Victoria Duda-Milloy, Paniz Tavakoli, Kenneth Campbell, Daniel L. Benoit, Amineh KoravandAbstractThe insertion of a silent period (or gap) in a frequently occurring standard stimulus elicits a negative-going event-related potential (ERP), called the Deviant-Related Negativity (DRN). This is often studied using a single-deviant paradigm. To study the effects of gaps with multiple durations, a different sequence would be required...

Glucococorticoid receptor activation exacerbates aminoglycoside-induced damage to the zebrafish lateral line
Publication date: June 2019Source: Hearing Research, Volume 377Author(s): Tamasen Hayward, Alexander Young, Abigail Jiang, Erica J. Crespi, Allison B. CoffinAbstractAminoglycoside antibiotics have potent antibacterial properties but cause hearing loss in up to 25% of patients. These drugs are commonly administered in patients with high glucocorticoid stress hormone levels and can be combined with exogenous glucocorticoid treatment. However, the interaction of stress and aminoglycoside-induced hearing...
