Putting the 'Neural' Back in Sensorineural: Cochlear Neurodegeneration in Noise and Aging, presented in partnership with American Auditory Society

Course: #24985Level: Intermediate1 Hour 20 Reviews

This webinar is presented in partnership with American Auditory Society. Noise-induced hearing loss results when exposure to damaging levels of sound injures delicate inner ear structures and compromises vulnerable inner ear functions. Noise-exposed ears age, and they do so in ways different from unexposed ears. This talk will describe functionally important changes that contribute to noise-induced and age-related hearing loss and will summarize recent work that shows that prior noise continues to change the ways that ears and hearing age, long after the noise has stopped.

Learning Outcomes

  • checkmarkAs a result of this Continuing Education Activity, participants will be able to describe common structural and functional consequences of noise overexposure in the acute post-exposure timeframe
  • checkmarkAs a result of this Continuing Education Activity, participants will be able to identify strengths and limitations of threshold sensitivity metrics in characterizing noise-induced functional compromise
  • checkmarkAs a result of this Continuing Education Activity, participants will be able to describe possible progressive/delayed consequences of TTS-producing noise on cochlear structure and function
