Competing Views on Abnormal Auditory Results After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

  title={Competing Views on Abnormal Auditory Results After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury},
  author={Susan Gordon-Hickey and Margot L. Beckerman},
: http://si p://pubs.as Central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) refers to a deficit in the neural processing of auditory stimuli that can affect listening, language, and learning. Because CAPD manifests behavioral symptoms similar to those exhibited by listeners with peripheral hearing loss, it is important that the audiologist be prepared to “go beyond the 8th nerve” in the assessment process to evaluate central auditory skill sets and provide intervention as needed. Differential diagnosis…

Auditory and Cognitive Factors Associated with Speech‐in‐Noise Complaints following Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Speech‐in‐noise performance was related to a combination of auditory and nonauditory factors, confirming the important role of audiology in MTBI rehabilitation and consistent with previous findings that a subset of listeners with MTBI has objective auditory deficits.
Hearing complaints among veterans following traumatic brain injury
ABSTRACT It has been shown that there is an increased risk for impaired auditory function following traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Veterans. Evidence is strongest in the area of self-report, but
Blast Exposure Impairs Sensory Gating: Evidence from Measures of Acoustic Startle and Auditory Event-Related Potentials
The hypothesis that blast exposure impairs central auditory processing via impairment of neural mechanisms underlying habituation and sensory gating is supported.

Providing logical and rigorous scientific information on the nature and alleviation of listening difficulties in children should remain a high priority for speech, language, and hearing research.
Auditory training and adult rehabilitation: a critical review of the evidence
Auditory Training (AT) describes a regimen of varied listening exercises designed to improve an individual’s ability to perceive speech. The theory of AT is based on brain plasticity (the capacity of
Evolving concepts of developmental auditory processing disorder (APD): A British Society of Audiology APD Special Interest Group ‘white paper’
Screening for APD may be most appropriately based on a well-validated, caregiver questionnaire that captures the fundamental problem of listening difficulties and identifies areas for further assessment and management, and may in future serve as a metric to help assess other, objective testing methods.
The clinical assessment of obscure auditory dysfunction--1. Auditory and psychological factors.
We define obscure auditory dysfunction (OAD) as the clinical presentation of reported difficulty understanding speech in the presence of noise accompanied by clinically "normal" hearing thresholds,
Age-related changes in the auditory brainstem response.
In a sample of veterans, aging substantially reduced amplitudes of all principal ABR peaks, with significant latency shifts limited to waves I and III, and the concept that aging reduces the numbers and/or synchrony of contributing auditory nerve units is supported.
Cochlear neuropathy and the coding of supra-threshold sound
It is argued that cochlear neuropathy may reduce encoding precision of supra-threshold sound, and that this manifests both behaviorally and in SSSRs in humans.
The clinical assessment of "Obscure Auditory Dysfunction" (OAD) 2. Case control analysis of determining factors.
Stage 2 of a case control study of OAD has confirmed the general finding of stage 1 that OAD is multifactorial; compared with controls, patients as a group have a genuine performance deficit for understanding speech in noise, accompanied by personality-related factors.
Auditory brainstem response to complex sounds predicts self-reported speech-in-noise performance.
The fact that the cABR predicts more variance in self-reported speech-in-noise (SIN) perception than either the QuickSIN or hearing thresholds indicates that thecABR provides additional insight into an individual's ability to hear in background noise.
Tinnitus with a Normal Audiogram: Physiological Evidence for Hidden Hearing Loss and Computational Model
It is reported that in human subjects with tinnitus and a normal audiogram, auditory brainstem responses show a significantly reduced amplitude of the wave I potential but normal amplitudes of the more centrally generated wave V.
Aging degrades the neural encoding of simple and complex sounds in the human brainstem.
FFR components representing the tone and consonant-vowel /da/ stimulus were negatively affected by age, showing age-related reductions in response synchrony and amplitude, as well as prolonged latencies.
