Nov. 25, 2015 — Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers report they have figured out ... read more

Sound Deprivation Leads to Irreversible Hearing Loss

Nov. 18, 2015 — Sound deprivation in adult mice causes irreversible damage to the inner ear. The findings suggest that chronic conductive hearing loss, such as that caused by recurrent ear infections, leads to ... read more

Taste Perception Is Influenced by Extreme Noise Conditions

Nov. 10, 2015 — Scientists examined the influence of the extreme noise conditions encountered during flight on the five basic tastes. They found that noise condition had no influence on intensity ratings for salty, ... read more

Nov. 9, 2015 — Some nerve cells in the inner ear can signal tissue damage in a way similar to pain-sensing nerve cells in the body, according to new research. If the finding, discovered in rats, is confirmed in ... read more

Nov. 6, 2015 — The movement of protein within hair cells of the inner ear shows signs of a repair and renewal mechanism, new research ... read more

Oct. 26, 2015 — These genes, or others in the same pathway, could be promising targets for efforts to treat hearing loss or balance problems by regenerating hair cells, the researchers ... read more

Scientists Develop Genetic Blueprint of Inner Ear Cell Development

Oct. 15, 2015 — Using a sensitive new technology called single-cell RNA-seq on cells from mice, scientists have created the first high-resolution gene expression map of the newborn mouse inner ear. The findings ... read more

Ancient Human Ear-Orienting System Could Yield Clues to Hearing Deficits in Infants

Oct. 13, 2015 — Vestigial organs, such as the wisdom teeth in humans, are those that have become functionless through the course of evolution. Now, a psychologist studying vestigial muscles behind the ears in humans ... read more

July 13, 2015 — Conventional wisdom has long blamed age-related hearing loss almost entirely on the death of sensory hair cells in the inner ear, but research from neuroscientists has provided new information about ... read more

July 9, 2015 — Screening method can reduce false-positive hearing results, reducing need for extensive followup tests, family stress, researchers say. In their study, audiologists used high-frequency tympanometry ... read more

Quiet That Ringing in the Brain

June 23, 2015 — Epilepsy and tinnitus are both caused by overly excitable nerve cells. Healthy nerves have a built-in system that slams on the brakes when they get too excited. The 'brakes' are actually ... read more

May 12, 2015 — A major breakthrough has been made that provides new insights into how tinnitus, and the often co-occurring hyperacusis, might develop and be sustained. Tinnitus is largely a mystery, a phantom sound ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Researchers have answered the longstanding question of how the brain balances hearing between our ears, which is essential for localizing sound, hearing in noisy conditions and for protection from ... read more

Toddlers Understand Sound They Make Influences Others, Research Shows

May 11, 2015 — Confirming what many parents already know, researchers have discovered that toddlers, especially those with siblings, understand how the sounds they make affect people around ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — About one in five people experience tinnitus, the perception of a sound -- often described as ringing -- that isn't really there. Now, researchers have taken advantage of a rare opportunity to ... read more

Genetic Predisposition Found for Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Apr. 16, 2015 — In a new genome-wide association study, an international team of neuroscientists has found evidence that some people may be more genetically susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss than ... read more

A Bodyguard for Your Ears: Scientists Discover Novel Pain Sensors in Inner Ear That Warn of Dangerously Loud Noise

Feb. 18, 2015 — Our hearing has a secret bodyguard, a newly discovered connection from the cochlea to the brain that warns of intense incoming noise that causes tissue damage and hearing loss. Scientists believe ... read more
