  • Neurobiology: Tuning of timing in auditory axons

    26 Aug 2015 | 7:20 am
    A team has shown that the axons of auditory neurons in the brainstem which respond to low and high-frequency sounds differ in their morphology, and that these variations correlate with differences in the speed of signal conduction.
  • How exposure to brief trauma and sudden sounds form lasting memories

    24 Aug 2015 | 8:45 am
    Researchers have found how even brief exposure to sudden sounds or mild trauma can form permanent, long-term brain connections, or memories, in a specific region of the brain.
  • Researcher looks through the noise to discover potential risks from jet fuel

    18 Aug 2015 | 10:18 am
    Jet fuel, when combined with sustained noise, may cause brain-related injury and lead to multiple conditions. Clinical conditions such as anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and post-traumatic stress could be attributed, in part, to hydrocarbon-related disruptions in brain function, a factor previously overlooked during diagnoses, say authors of a new report.
  • Brain plasticity after vision loss has an 'on-off switch'

    12 Aug 2015 | 7:37 am
    A molecular on-off switch that controls how a mouse brain responds to vision loss has been discovered by biologists. When the switch is on, the loss of sight in one eye will be compensated by the other eye, but also by tactile input from the whiskers. When the switch is off, only the other eye will take over. These findings may help improve patient susceptibility to sensory prosthetics such as cochlear implants or bionic eyes.
  • Silently suffering from hearing loss negatively affects quality of life

    7 Aug 2015 | 10:12 am

  • "Inaudible" - Powerful animated story about a musician who loses his hearing

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:17 am
    I had an email recently from Gints Zilbalodis, to share me a short animated clip for my blog readers. As Gints Zilbalodis describes it: "A powerful story about a musician who loses his hearing and who struggles to adapt to his new life." The clip is just over 7 minutes long. There is no dialogue, other than just music that accompanies this short clip.I have never watched a clip before, that just involved music and no dialogue. So that was rather different for me, but interesting.There is a link at the end of this post, that will take you to Gints Zilbalodis Vimeo page, where as well as seeing…

    TIME magazine have been comparing jobs across America. They’ve looked at growth within an industry, stress-levels of workers and average incomes to determine the best and worst jobs. Being an audiologist came out top! As it turns out, audiologists, medical professionals who treat hearing and balance problems, don’t have it so bad. BLS projects the profession is expected to experience a 34% boost in jobs between 2012 and 2022. The median salary for audiologists is a stable $69,720. The projected growth is likely a reflection of the fact that as the nation ages — the over-65…

    Written by Thomsen Young and you can follow him @ Independent productions are quite difficult to produce especially when it comes to producing a film in either Hollywood or New York City; however, with great crowd-sourcing websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo are providing independent film makers an excellent way to raise funds to produce small-scales productions. Some examples of this medium being used within the deaf community comes to mind: Spring Awakening, Jules Dameron “Let it Go” in ASL, and This is Normal. Yet, that’s not stopping the power nor the movement of #deaftalent.

    There’s a shortage of political news just now but here is an interesting comment piece by a Daily Express writer. The point is, he’s largely right. Back in the Thatcher years people were actually being advised by Jobcentres to sign on as sick rather than just unemployed. This was a blatant bit of Government fiddling designed to produce an apparent reduction in the unemployment figures. Instead of being counted unemployed people were now counted as sick, a separate register. Most of those people were signing as sick due to things like depression, bad back, dodgy hip joints and…

    It  was a total accident really.  I read an item in the local paper about a man who had been taken to court for not making a phone call before using a level crossing. This particular crossing was outside town on a quiet lane leading to a renowned beauty spot and the line was only used by one train per hour. Many people use the crossing because they like to walk in the lane and admire the many wild flowers, some of them rare. The crossing has a phone box beside it and people are ordered via a big notice to phone the signal box before opening the gate and crossing the line. The man in court…
