OPENING WINDOWS TO THE LISTENING BRAIN: DEVELOPING OBJECTIVE MEASURES OF HEARING ACUITY IN THE HUMAN BRAIN.

Abstract

Up to 160,000 Australians are un-employed due to hearing impairment, costing an estimated $12 billion per year. I will undertake systematic research which will result in EEG-based clinical tools designed to measure the reliability and acuity with which brainstem and brain structures are able to encode fine details in sounds. These tools will improve diagnostic and prognostic tests, especially for clinicians and parents of infants diagnosed with auditory neuropathies.
