AudiologyNOW! 2016: Amplification Effects on Neural Processing (.15 CEUs)
Recorded On: 04/15/2016
Amplification Effects on Neural Processing
Recorded April 15, 2016 at AudiologyNOW! 2016
Duration: 90 minutes
Presenter: Samira Anderson, AuD., PhD
Who Should Attend: Audiologists and others who provide services to older adults with hearing loss
Instructional Level: Intermediate
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
- Describe the effects of aging and on brainstem and cortical evoked potentials.
- List the effects of amplification on brainstem and cortical evoked potentials in older adults.
- Recognize the neuroplastic changes in auditory processing induced by hearing aid use over time.
Description: Although hearing aid technology has improved dramatically, many people continue to express dissatisfaction with hearing aids. One possibility for this dissatisfaction is that changes in auditory processing associated with aging and hearing loss may limit amplification benefits. This presentation will discuss how evoked potential measurements may be used to inform us of the effects of amplification on central auditory processing at the time of fitting and to document neuroplastic changes over time.
