Why KID Syndrome patients experience different sets of symptoms
(Rockefeller University Press) A team of New York-based researchers has compared the effects of two disease-causing mutations, potentially explaining why patients with the rare genetic disorder keratitis-ichthyosis-deafness (KID) syndrome can experience different sets of symptoms. The study, 'Syndromic deafness mutations at Asn 14 differentially alter open stability of Cx26 hemichannels,' will be published online June 27, 2016 in The Journal of General Physiology.

Want Hearing Aids? Too Expensive? Read On.
What's the Number One reason people say they don't wear hearing aids? Cost. A single hearing aid costs between $3000 and $4000 and most people with age- or noise-related hearing loss need two. Medicare does not cover hearing aids -- even for people who are profoundly deaf -- nor do most private insurance plans. Medicaid may provide hearing aids for children up to a certain age, but not often for adults. If you're in your 40s or 50s, you may think this post doesn't apply to you. But more than 50 percent of those with hearing loss are under the age of 60. Untreated hearing loss can lead to more severe hearing loss as y...

How to Get High Without Drugs: Holotropic Breathwork, Hypnagogia, and Eye Contact
This article was originally posted on Inverse. By Jacqueline Ronson People take mild altering drugs -- everything from Tylenol to LSD -- because the effects are useful, interesting, or pleasurable. In altering the way we process stimuli, drugs facilitate a change in our thoughts and behaviors. This experience can be eye-opening or embarrassing or terrifying or barely noticeable, but it is universal. Drugs don't offer a singular experience, but a shortcut to a fundamental one. To have a human brain is to get high. Permanent sobriety is, physiologically speaking, a near impossibility. Historically, humans have embraced ...

Machine learning helps determine which infants will gain the most from cochlear implantation
Intact hearing in early childhood is essential for normal development of communication skills and language. Neural circuits are responsible for the healthy development of hearing, which is foundational for most academic skills, such as reading and language communication. Deaf babies, or those born with impaired hearing abilities, may suffer from an ongoing deficit in communication skills and language development if they pass the time window critical for the development of these neural circuits along a typical trajectory. Indeed, about 3 out of every 1000 infants are born with severe or profound hearing loss (Cunningham and...

(Reuters) – Swiss hearing aid maker Sonova missed full-year targets and lowered its sales outlook on Wednesday, suggesting it could take some time to reap benefits from this month’s acquisition of AudioNova, sending its shares sharply lower. Sonova has been hurt by slower than expected growth for its U.S. cochlear implant business and by customer Costco’s move to sell own-brand hearing aids at cheaper prices than Sonova’s devices on neighbouring shelves. Though Sonova expects the 830 million euro ($953 million) takeover of Netherlands-based retailer AudioNova to pay off over time, Chief Executive Lu...
