Publication date: 21 May 2018 Source:Neuroscience, Volume 379 Author(s): Samer Masri, Li S. Zhang, Hao Luo, Edward Pace, Jinsheng Zhang, Shaowen Bao Blast exposure can cause various auditory disorders including tinnitus, hyperacusis, and other central auditory processing disorders. While this is suggestive of pathologies in the central auditory system, the impact of blast exposure on central auditory processing remains poorly understood. Here we examined the effects of blast shockwaves on acoustic response properties and the tonotopic frequency map in the auditory cortex. We found that multiunits recorded from the auditor...

Authors: Watts KL, Welles R, Zurek P Abstract The Warfighter's Hearing Health Instructional Primer (WHHIP) is a supplemental tool for military hearing conservation programs (MHCPs) and can be accessed by the warfighter on his/her own personal mobile phone. A gap was identified for a supplement to MHCPs that is easily accessible by warfighters to improve hearing health knowledge. The WHHIP aims to instruct the warfighter in best hearing health practices. To do so, four activities are included: Learn, Demos, HPD Check, and Glossary. Learn and Glossary allow the warfighter to scroll through various informational topic...

This study aimed to evaluate risk factors of tinnitus in adolescents in terms of smoking, and we identified a rectifiable parameter that can be serially monitored. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted using data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, with 2,782 participants aged 12 to 18 years, from 2008 through 2011. Participants with history of ear disease, hearing loss, and inadequate responses to questionnaires were excluded. We investigated the prevalence of tinnitus and tinnitus-related annoyance by questionnaire and sought potential risk factors in blood and urine tests and sm...

Soterix Medical today released results from trials of its direct current stimulation-limited total energy technology designed to treat depression, touting that the device was found to be safe and effective with improvements in depression-rating metrics lasting for a month after treatment. The tDCS-LTE system is designed to deliver energy to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex region of the brain which is implicated in depression control, the New York-based company said. In the first trial, the company reported that its tDCS-LTE system was effective and safe as an add-on intervention for patients with type I or II bipolar di...
