Auditory Neuropathy/Auditory Synaptopathy.

Linda J Hood,

Patients with auditory neuropathy (AN)/auditory synaptopathy (AS) present unique evaluation and management challenges. Communication ability using auditory stimuli varies among patients, with particular difficulty understanding speech in noise. Auditory physiologic responses are key to accurate identification and monitoring of patients with AN/AS. Management approaches should consider individual variation and the ... Read more >>

Alexandra P Key, Silvia F B de Moura Negrini, Carla A C Tanuri Caldas, Sara Reis Teixeira, Adriana R T Anastasio, Juliana Cavalcante, Marisa M Mussi-Pinhata, Linda J Hood,

Developmental trends between 3 and 24 months were assessed in 194 normocephalic infants with prenatal Zika virus exposure. Bayley Scales of Infant and Toddler Development Screening Test-3rd Edition cognitive scores remained in the typical range. Communication skills developed at a slower rate suggesting that neurodevelopmental delays may emerge at older ages. ... Read more >>

Relationships between click auditory brainstem response and speech frequency following response with development in infants born preterm.

Angela M Madrid, Kerry A Walker, Spencer B Smith, Linda J Hood, Beth A Prieve,

The speech evoked frequency following response (sFFR) is used to study relationships between neural processing and functional aspects of speech and language that are not captured by click or toneburst evoked auditory brainstem responses (ABR). The sFFR is delayed, deviant, or weak in school age children having a variety of ... Read more >>

Association between ABO blood group status and cochlear/neural function: auditory brainstem response findings.

Yunqiu Yang, Linda J Hood, Bradley McPherson,

<h4>Background</h4>ABO blood group status may be a risk factor for some diseases, including hearing loss. Individuals with blood group O show a higher prevalence of hearing loss after industrial noise exposure. Group O individuals with normal hearing show reduced amplitudes in otoacoustic emission recordings. Whether blood group status affects auditory ... Read more >>

Heritability of non-speech auditory processing skills.

Carmen C Brewer, Christopher K Zalewski, Kelly A King, Oliver Zobay, Alison Riley, Melanie A Ferguson, Jonathan E Bird, Margaret M McCabe, Linda J Hood, Dennis Drayna, Andrew J Griffith, Robert J Morell, Thomas B Friedman, David R Moore,

Recent insight into the genetic bases for autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, stuttering, and language disorders suggest that neurogenetic approaches may also reveal at least one etiology of auditory processing disorder (APD). A person with an APD typically has difficulty understanding speech in background noise despite having normal pure-tone hearing sensitivity. ... Read more >>

Auditory Neuropathy/Dys-Synchrony Disorder: Diagnosis and Management.

Linda J Hood,

Auditory neuropathy/dys-synchrony disorder affects neural responses, either directly or indirectly. Patients may demonstrate good ability to detect sound, but have significant difficulty listening in noise. Clinical auditory physiologic measures are used to characterize cochlear, eighth nerve, and brainstem function, and are needed to accurately identify this disorder. Cochlear implants provide ...

Christopher Spankovich, Linda J Hood, Heidi J Silver, Warren Lambert, Victoria M Flood, Paul Mitchell,

<h4>Background</h4>Evidence from animal models suggests that redox homeostasis (the balance between oxidative stressors and antioxidants) and vascular health are important in the pathogenesis of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and that dietary nutrients that have roles in these processes could influence the susceptibility to SNHL.<h4>Purpose</h4>To examine associations between total nutrient intakes ...

Normal characteristics of the ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potential.

Erin G Piker, Gary P Jacobson, Devin L McCaslin, Linda J Hood,

<h4>Background</h4>Stimulus-evoked electromyographic changes can be recorded from the extraocular muscles. These short-latency negative-polarity evoked myogenic potentials are called ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMPs). To date there has not yet been a large-scale study examining the effects of age on the amplitude, latency, threshold, and interaural differences of the oVEMP ... Read more >>

Auditory neuropathy/dyssynchrony: its diagnosis and management.

Charles I Berlin, Thierry Morlet, Linda J Hood,

Patients with auditory neuropathy/dyssynchrony exhibit no auditory brain stem response (ABR), no middle ear muscle response, and both normal otoacoustic emissions or normal cochlear microphonics. An absent or grossly abnormal ABR is not always associated with deafness. In contrast, a hearing loss of 30 dB or more usually predicts absent ... Read more >>
