Sensorineural hearing loss

Common Name(s)

Sensorineural hearing loss

Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear or the pathways from the inner ear to the brain. It is the most common form of permanent hearing loss, and typically cannot be repaired. Most sensorineural hearing loss is due to damaged hair cells in the inner ear, and this can be present at birth or acquired during the lifetime of the individual. Symptoms of sensorineural hearing loss include delayed development of speech or unclear speech, use of high volume on electronic viewing devices, and consistent need to ask for repitition in conversation. Treatment may include hearing aides or cochlear implants to improve hearing ability.

Sensorineural hearing loss degrades behavioral and physiological measures of human spatial selective auditory attention.
 

Author(s): Lengshi Dai, Virginia Best, Barbara G Shinn-Cunningham

Journal: Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.. 2018 04;115(14):E3286-E3295.

 

Listeners with sensorineural hearing loss often have trouble understanding speech amid other voices. While poor spatial hearing is often implicated, direct evidence is weak; moreover, studies suggest that reduced audibility and degraded spectrotemporal coding may explain such problems. ...
