The amplitude and phase of both stimulus-frequency and distortion-product emissions have been measured in healthy human ears. In some ears it is possible to model acoustic distortion products (DPs) generated by low-to-moderate stimulus levels as the vector sum of two components originating from distinct regions of the cochlea, one from the f2 place and the(More)
Healthcare professionals often censor their information giving to patients in an attempt to protect them from potentially hurtful, sad or bad news. There is a commonly expressed belief that what people do not know does not harm them. Analysis of doctor and nurse/patient interactions reveals that this well-intentioned but misguided assumption about human(More)
A series of experiments investigated the deterioration in intensity discrimination at intermediate levels caused by preceding the brief sinusoidal stimuli by an intense narrow-band noise [Zeng et al., Hear. Res. 55, 223-230 (1991)]. Experiment 1 showed that this deterioration acted in a roughly additive manner with the previously reported midlevel(More)
There are no reports of adjuvant treatments for early breast cancer causing hearing loss. Yet in this exploratory study 14/16 women who had received Fluorouracil, Epirubicin and Cyclophosphamide (FEC) chemotherapy regimen, 11 of whom also received endocrine treatment, had reduced hearing sensitivity, with 9/16 being atypical. It is not clear whether this(More)
The Royal College of Radiologists has recommended chaperones of the appropriate gender for those undergoing intimate scans. This has significant implications for clinical and research programmes. Two hundred and fifty women undergoing scanning in a screening trial were sent postal questionnaires to determine their views as to the presence of chaperones and(More)
Psychophysical tuning curves (PTCs) at 4 kHz were measured in forward and simultaneous masking under two experimental conditions: 1 h after listeners had ingested three 320 mg capsules of aspirin every 6 h for 3 days (3.84 g/day), and after an identical schedule of placebo ingestion. Aspirin and placebo allocation was double-blind. In addition to raising(More)
