Plasticity in the developing auditory cortex: evidence from children with sensorineural hearing loss and auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder.
 

Author(s): Garrett Cardon, Julia Campbell, Anu Sharma

Journal: J Am Acad Audiol. 2012 Jun;23(6):396-411; quiz 495.

 

The developing auditory cortex is highly plastic. As such, the cortex is both primed to mature normally and at risk for reorganizing abnormally, depending upon numerous factors that determine central maturation. From a clinical perspective, at least two major components of development ...

Synchronous auditory nerve activity in the carboplatin-chinchilla model of auditory neuropathy.
 

Author(s): C D Cowper-Smith, R N Dingle, Y Guo, R Burkard, D P Phillips

Journal: J. Acoust. Soc. Am.. 2010 Jul;128(1):EL56-62.

 

Two hallmark features of auditory neuropathy (AN) are normal outer hair cell function in the presence of an absent/abnormal auditory brainstem response (ABR). Studies of human AN patients are unable to determine whether disruption of the ABR is the result of a reduction of neural ...

Extratympanic electrocochleography in the diagnosis of auditory neuropathy/auditory dyssynchrony.
 

Author(s): Adriana Ribeiro Tavares Anastasio, Kátia de Freitas Alvarenga, Orozimbo Alves Costa Filho

Journal: Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. ;74(1):132-6.

 

The brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) is being extensively used as a method for the evaluation of cochlear function in individuals with diagnosis of auditory neuropathy/auditory dyssynchrony (AN/AD). In the absence of otoacoustic emissions, many cases of AN/AD have been diagnosed ...
