Diagnosis: A sensory hearing loss can be diagnosed with an audiometer and otoacoustic emission testing.
Treatment: Damage to the hair cells of the cochlea cannot usually be treated with medication or surgery. Once the auditory stimulus makes its way through the ear, it travels along the VIIIth cranial nerve to the brainstem and then up to the brain for processing. Diagnosis: Auditory brainstem response testing (ABR) is frequently used to rule out the presence of an VIIIth nerve tumor.
Diagnosis: Auditory processing disorders are typically diagnosed through a serious of audio test which evaluate the ability to understand in difficult situations, such as in the presence of competing sounds. Treatment: Auditory processing disorders are most often treated by utilizing effective communication strategies. So Paul and I were both excited and saddened to see this footage of a Dumbo octopus that, according to the Youtube poster, was caught during a beam trawl. I’ve often wondered whether someone could similarly use software to create a better way to teach the harmonica.
The cool thing about a Kaoss Pad is that you can see the relationship between where you slide your finger and the attendant musical effect. I’m coming late to this, but back in 2006 a couple of audiologists decided to test a bunch of earbuds and headphones to measure how much hearing damage they cause when playing MP3 tracks at a range of volumes, from whisper-quiet to full-on 100%.
The study also showed that teen boys listen louder than teen girls, and teens who express the most concern about the risk for and severity of hearing loss from iPods actually play their music at higher levels than their peers, said CU-Boulder audiologist and doctoral candidate Cory Portnuff, who headed up the study. What particularly interested me was how straightforwardly Chen’s imagery in the game was rooted in super-ancient Western mythologies about a dry, broken land healed by a heroic quest. Firstly, he discovered that the identity of the original Twitterer isn’t the be-all and end-all. The writer suggests that a panhandler ought to wear a sign invoking the Obama stimulus package.
I stopped talking and reached into my pocket for one of the strips of laundry board on which I make notes when I’m interviewing people.
When I’m finally writing, the cognitive styles of computer versus paper tend to complement one another. Of course, given that we now actually do empirical science and stuff, it’s still pretty alarming that museums mess up quadrupedal gait almost as often as toy companies do.
I'm Clive Thompson, the author of Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds for the Better (Penguin Press).
The SoundGear line of products includes the breakthrough instant fit in the ear (ITE) recreational and industrial models that feature replaceable sleeves in two sizes to fit most people right out of the box. If you are faced with the need to hear better in a noisy place, as well as the need to protect your hearing at the same time, you need to consider SoundGear by Starkey Hearing Technologies.
Sometimes, the ear may be healthy, but a significant hearing loss is caused by damage to the nerve itself.
Testing is time-intensive and may be accompanied by electrophysiological tests such as the ABR.


In the case of children, preferential seating and other accommodations at school may be warranted. A lot of the cool dynamics of harmonica playing are about embouchure — the different shapes you make with your lips, tongue, cheeks and jaw.
One public-health-policy concern these days is that young people are listening to music waaaaaay too loud, and are all gonna be deaf by their mid 40s.
The creators use gameplay as a rhetorical technique: They use physics, music, action, perspective, goals and challenges of the game as metaphors. You touch other flowers, opening them up and releasing their petals; if you do a lot of this you start to bring dead, dry land back to life. So I wrote my column arguing that it’s essentially a game about the environment, or climate change.
It’s when somebody copies one of your Twitter status updates and puts it in their own stream. You might imagine that getting ReTweeted is simply a matter of being a huge Twitter celebrity with 15,000 followers; with so many people paying attention to your Tweets, it would stand to reason that you’d have a much greater likelihood of your utterances going viral, right? It turns out Twitter is currently governed by the circadian rhythms of Eastern Standard Time — because the amount of ReTweeting overall starts at a low level in the predawn period EST, then climbs during the workday and peaks at 3 pm. In the story, the writer uses a first-person voice to describe how he was walking to the bank and wound up talking to panhandlers, and discovered that the economic downturn is hitting them pretty hard too. The cut-and-paste, move-it-around-and-see-what-happens nature of digital text makes it easier to be playful with how I’m structuring a piece. Now I’m savoring the mental image of him stalking Frank Sinatra back in 1966 for his seminal Esquire profile, and carrying around slips of laundry board to scribble notes.
It’s a display at the Natural History Museum in Oulu, Finland, and it shows a domestic dog in mid-stride. Then in the 1870s, the photographer Edward Muybridge began settling these fights by pioneering serial freeze-frame photography that revealed how horses and the like walked and galloped, and pretty soon naturalists had this stuff all figured out. Taxidermy catalogues got it wrong 43% of the time, toys 50% of the time, and animal-anatomy catalogues were the worst, with 63.6% errors. You can order the book now at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Powells, Indiebound, or through your local bookstore! SoundGear electronic shooting and industrial ear plugs provide the solution to the dual challenges of hearing enhancement and hearing protection, and without the need to compromise on either requirement. At the same time, SoundGear protects your hearing by compressing the ambient soundscape to a safe volume level, letting you hear everything that you would with the open ear, but at a safe volume level. SoundGear also includes conventional behind the ear (BTE) models with sound tubes terminated with a noise blocking foam tip as well as full custom in the ear (ITE) models. Noise, chemical changes, and the natural aging process can all cause damage to the sensory cells, which results in a decrease in perceived volume and decreased clarity. The most common type of neural hearing disorder is caused by a tumor on the VIIIth cranial nerve. In some cases, more often in smaller children, the auditory portion of the brain does not properly utilize the signals delivered by the ear.


I shudder to think of what sort of charges will be levied against us during the cephalopod truth-and-reconciliation commissions a few decades from now. To figure out whether this was true, these same scientists studied 30 Denver-Boulder-area teenagers. Not enough to stop, yet, but enough to start wondering, hmmm, isn’t this gonna make me deaf? A couple of months ago I wrote my Wired News column about Passage, a fantastic little video-game meditation on life and death. Zarella decided to look at ReTweeting amongst a sample of 20,000 users to see if he could spy any rules.
For example, when I’m reporting at my desk and doing interviews, I always type on my computer, because I can rip along at about 80 words a minute. But recently a team of biological physicists noticed that they were seeing errors in museum exhibits and taxidermy models, so they decided to see how commonplace these goofs were.
When museum researchers and taxidermists do a quadruped exhibit, they probably just refer to existing illustrations and models, even when those are wrong — so the errors simply compound themselves.
I'm also a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine and a columnist for Wired magazine. What this means in practice is that you no longer have to compromise your ability to hear danger signals and voices in noisy places in order to have the hearing protection you need.
Only someone with an anvil for a heart could be unmoved by the gorgeous and thoroughly extraterrestrial spectacle of the noble Grimpoteuthis, which looks sort of like a gelatinous ghost from Pac-Man, with two floppy ‘lil ear-thingies on top. This week, I wrote about Flower, an insanely beautiful game released two weeks ago for the Playstation 3 by Jenova Chen.
Other times dead trees explode with color and leaves, or winds start blowing that power wind turbines.
Original stuff — bits of news and information that is exclusive to the original Twitterer.
My interviews notes are thus extremely complete — almost a word-for-word transcription of what my interviewee said. But that dog in the Finland museum is shoving its right front paw forward, followed by its back left paw. They randomly gathered a representative sampling of 307 depictions of quadrupeds walking in museum exhibits, taxidermy catalogues, animal-anatomy books and toys. They don’t think to re-investigate the correct gait of dogs, because they presume this was settled a hundred years ago. Or could you even create a virtual instrument that let you play a virtual harmonica using Kaoss-like controls?
