A recent study indicates that 20 million people in the United States have significant sensorineural hearing loss. Approximately 95% of those people have partial losses, with varying degrees of residual hearing. These percentages are similar in other developed countries. What changes in the function of the cochlea or inner ear cause such losses? What does the world sound like to the 19 million people with residual hearing? How should we transform sounds to correct for the hearing loss and maximize restoration of normal hearing? Answers to such questions require detailed models of the way that sounds are processed by the nervous system, both for listeners with normal hearing and for those with sensorineural hearing loss. This book contains chapters describing the work of 25 different research groups. A great deal of research in recent years has been aimed at obtaining a better physiological description of the altered processes that cause sensorineural hearing loss and a better understanding of transformations that occur in the perception of those sounds that are sufficiently intense that they can still be heard. Efforts to understand these changes in function have lead to a better understanding of normal function as well. This research has been based on rigorous mathematical models, computer simulations of mechanical and physiological processes, and signal processing simulations of the altered perceptual experience of listeners with sensorineural hearing loss. This book provides examples of all these approaches to modeling sensorineural hearing loss and a summary of the latest research in the field.

The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of comprehensive and synthetic reviews of the fundamental topics in modern auditory research. The v- umes are aimed at all individuals with interests in hearing research including advanced graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and clinical investigators. The volumes are intended to introduce new investigators to important aspects of hearing science and to help established investigators to better understand the fundamental theories and data in fields of hearing that they may not normally follow closely. Each volume presents a particular topic comprehensively, and each serves as a synthetic overview and guide to the literature. As such, the chapters present neither exhaustive data reviews nor original research that has not yet appeared in pe- reviewed journals. The volumes focus on topics that have developed a solid data and conceptual foundation rather than on those for which a literature is only beg- ning to develop. New research areas will be covered on a timely basis in the series as they begin to mature.

Completely updating the material presented in Hearing Assessment, Second Edition, this book also offers new data on the more complex and sometimes controversial assessment procedures in contemporary audiology. In addition to covering the fundamental concepts of clinical audiology, it provides discussions of clinical decisions and hearing conservation approaches, as well as comprehensive explanations of important diagnostics, presented by a team of top experts with clinical and research experience.The book covers both clinical procedures that have changed little in the past decade (pure tone audiometry, clinical masking) and topics that have evolved and expanded in recent years (evoked potentials, otoacoustic emissions). Other topics include tympanometry; acoustic-reflex measurements; intraoperative monitoring; hearing assessment of newborns, children, and the elderly; behavioral assessment of the central auditory nervous system; pseudohypacusis; occupational hearing loss prevention; and instrumentation and calibration. For hearing professionals and others looking for the latest information on contemporary hearing assessment.

This volume, Computational Models of the Auditory System, has as a systems approach where the focus is on studies which contribute to the big picture of hearing. In effect, the work covered in this volume, and the volume itself, builds a global model of audition. The chapters, rather than focusing on details of individual components of the hearing system, address the concerns of readers and researchers who want to know how the auditory system works as a whole.

The Value of Using the Operational Model of Behaviour Change on Adult Aural Rehabilitation Outcomes

The Value of Using the Operational Model of Behaviour Change on Adult Aural Rehabilitation Outcomes

The prevalence of hearing loss in adults is well documented. Hearing loss leads to poor communication, which is essential for daily living. Cogitating that we have an ageing population who are living longer with more co-morbidities, the consequences of a hearing loss can have a devastating impact on psychosocial aspects of an individual’s life. This in turn can negatively affect the quality of life of individuals with hearing loss. Although hearing aids are said to improve quality of life, studies have proven that many patients who are issued with hearing aids do not comply with aural rehabilitation services (either do not use the hearing aids at all or do not use them consistently). Research documents how this is costly (both financially and psychosocially) to patients, their caregivers as well as audiologists providing the service. Motivation and self-reported hearing disability and handicap have been highlighted in the literature as reasons why patients do not comply with aural rehabilitation. With current NHS reforms imposing cost-effective care with more patient choice and patient collaboration, aural rehabilitation services should evolve to include aspects of patient motivation and self-reported hearing disability and handicap by renouncing old medical models of rehabilitation and utilising models such as the Operational Model of behaviour change (OM). This model is said to be cost effective and patient-centred. The main aim of this study was to determine the value of using the OM of behaviour change on adult aural rehabilitation outcomes. The sub-aims outlined were designed to compare aural rehabilitation outcomes between two groups of subjects: one group that did not receive the OM of behaviour change and one that received the OM of behaviour change. This study was a quantitative, experimental study that utilised a pre-test post-test design. A total of 141 adult subjects with sensorineural hearing loss, who have never worn hearing aids, were recruited to this study and 68 of these were deemed suitable to participate as per the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Only 43 subjects completed the study and attended their final follow up appointment. Data from 24 subjects in the control group and 19 subjects in the experimental group were analysed and reported. The HHIE-S, HHIA-S, GHABP, IOI-HA and hearing aid data logging statistics were utilised as outcome measures for this study. Pre-test results displayed no significant difference between groups prior to implementation of the OM. Post-test results showed no significant difference for hearing aid use, reported benefit, hearing aid satisfaction and self-reported hearing difficulties. Conversely, the subjects in the experimental group scored significantly less residual disability for the GHABP than those in the control group. It could be inferred that subjects in the experimental group who received the OM, were more engaged and more supported during their rehabilitation process and as such had less difficulty with hearing aids. With regard to hearing aid benefit, results did have some positive effect, but this was not statistically significant. Secondary analysis of the results revealed corroborations with other studies with regard to the value of hearing aids and improvement in quality of life and reduction of self-reported hearing disability and handicap. On the basis of this study’s results, further research is required to determine the value of the OM in similar audiology settings. Adaptation of service delivery models such as the OM corresponds with the drive for improving the quality of services by giving patients more control of their healthcare.

This volume brings together noted scientists who study presbycusis from the perspective of complementary disciplines, for a review of the current state of knowledge on the aging auditory system. Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is one of the top three most common chronic health conditions affecting individuals aged 65 years and older. The high prevalence of age-related hearing loss compels audiologists, otolaryngologists, and auditory neuroscientists alike to understand the neural, genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying this disorder. A comprehensive understanding of these factors is needed so that effective prevention, intervention, and rehabilitative strategies can be developed to ameliorate the myriad of behavioral manifestations.
