Water transmits sound very well, and marine mammals have excellent hearing, which
Researchers discover 3 types of nerve fibers in the ear. All research adds to knowledge, but Dr. Fink says the evidence is already strong enough to establish that noise causes hearing loss and other health effects.
Newly identified gene plays critical role in noise-induced hearing loss. Great news, but why wait for some future cure when prevention of hearing loss is so easy?
Does sound affect taste? Yes, and Betsy Andrews tells us about new research that is making restaurateurs think twice about restaurant noise.
Study shows that eardrums move in sync with eyes, which may lead to better hearing aids. But why not focus on preserving hearing too?
A lowly fly may offer hope to those with hearing loss. Research has already imrproved hearing aid design and offers more hope for the future.
