Satisfaction of Children with Auditory Neuropathy and Cochlear Implant.
 

Author(s): Guilherme Machado de Carvalho, Thiago M Zago, Priscila Z Ramos, Arthur M Castilho, Alexandre C GuimarĂ£es, Edi L Sartorato

Journal: J Int Adv Otol. 2015 Dec;11(3):229-35.

 

In auditory neuropathy (AN) a dyssynchrony in the nerve conduction of the auditory nerve fibers is observed. Typically, patients with AN exhibit moderate to profound sensorineural hearing loss, and treatment using cochlear implants (CIs) or hearing aids should be performed as early ...

Refinement of Molecular Diagnostic Protocol of Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder: Disclosure of Significant Level of Etiologic Homogeneity in Koreans and Its Clinical Implications.
 

Author(s): Mun Young Chang, Ah Reum Kim, Nayoung K D Kim, Chung Lee, Woong-Yang Park, Byung Yoon Choi

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2015 Nov;94(47):e1996.

 

Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) is a sensorineural hearing disorder caused by dysfunction of auditory neural conduction. ANSD has a heterogeneous etiology, including genetic factors; the response to cochlear implantation significantly varies depending on the etiology. ...

The Role of Temporal Envelope and Fine Structure in Mandarin Lexical Tone Perception in Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder.
 

Author(s): Shuo Wang, Ruijuan Dong, Dongxin Liu, Yuan Wang, Bo Liu, Luo Zhang, Li Xu

Journal:

 

Temporal information in a signal can be partitioned into temporal envelope (E) and fine structure (FS). Fine structure is important for lexical tone perception for normal-hearing (NH) listeners, and listeners with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) have an impaired ability to use FS ...

Performance of hearing skills in children with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder using cochlear implant: a systematic review.
 

Author(s): Nayara Freitas Fernandes, Marina Morettin, Elisabete Honda Yamaguti, Orozimbo Alves Costa, Maria Cecilia Bevilacqua

Journal: Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. ;81(1):85-96.

 

Currently, there are no doubts about the benefits of cochlear implants for the development of children with severe or profound hearing loss. However, there is still no consensus among researchers and professionals regarding the benefits for the improvement of hearing skills in children ...

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 ...
