Recorded March 27, 2014 at AudiologyNOW! 2014
Duration: 1 hour
Presenter: Sumitrajit Dhar, PhD and James Hall III, PhD
CEUs: .1 CEUs
Who Should Attend: Audiologists providing clinical services to children and/or adults
Instructional Level: Intermediate
Program Focus: Knowledge
Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
1. Explain hair cell physiology responsible for OAEs
2. Describe different OAE generation mechanisms
3. Determine which stimulus type to use for which clinical application
This eAudiology Web seminar will highlight recent developments in the understanding of the generation and propagation of otoacoustic emissions and connected to possible clinical applications.
James W. Hall III, PhD received a Bachelor's degree in biology from American International College, a Masters degree in speech pathology from Northwestern University and his Ph.D. in audiology from Baylor College of Medicine. Since then he's held clinical and academic audiology positions at major medical centers. Dr. Hall now holds appointments as Extraordinary Professor in the Department of Communication Pathology at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Audiology at Nova Southeastern University and at Salus University. He's also president of James W. Hall III Audiology Consulting LLC. Dr. Hall's major clinical and research interests are clinical electrophysiology, auditory processing disorders, tinnitus/hyperacusis, and audiology applications of tele-health. He is the author of over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles, monographs, or book chapters. He has also authored or co-authored seven textbooks including the most recent Introduction to Audiology Today.
Sumitrajit (Sumit) Dhar, PhD is Professor of Audiology and Hearing Science in the Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. Sumit received training in Audiology and Hearing Science at the University of Mumbai, Utah State University, and Purdue University. Sumit's research focus is on hearing and hearing loss. In particular, Sumit's lab works on the science of otoacoustic emissions leveraging new knowledge to develop novel clinical applications for early detection of hearing loss.
