The use of interval probability theory (IPT) for uncertain inference is demonstrated. The general inference rule adopted is the theorem of total probability. This enables information on the relevance of the elements of the power set of evidence to be combined with the measures of the support for and dependence between each item of evidence. The approach(More)
PURPOSE The present study evaluated the effects of advancing age and sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) on approximate temporal gap detection thresholds obtained from the Gaps-in-Noise (GIN; Musiek et al., 2005) test. METHOD Approximate thresholds from the GIN test were compared among 3 groups of participants (older adults with SNHL, older adults with(More)
OBJECTIVES One of the challenges for evaluating new otoprotective agents for potential benefit in human populations is the availability of an established clinical paradigm with real-world relevance. These studies were explicitly designed to develop a real-world digital music exposure that reliably induces temporary threshold shift (TTS) in normal-hearing(More)
Accurate assessment of neonatal hearing screening performance is impossible without knowledge of the true status of hearing, a prohibitive requirement that necessitates a complete diagnostic evaluation on all babies screened. The purpose of this study was to circumvent this limitation by integrating two types of screening measures obtained near(More)
Although the suppressive effect of the medial olivocochlear system (MOCS) on peripheral auditory active mechanisms is well documented in humans, the effect of efferent inhibition over prolonged periods of acoustic stimulation is less well documented, especially as observed by transient evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) suppression. The present study(More)
We assessed the feasibility of conducting Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) testing in a mobile van with satellite connectivity, with the help of trained health workers. ABR recordings in newborn babies made by telemedicine were compared with recordings made face to face. The auditory evoked response equipment was controlled by an audiologist at a nearby(More)
