Recorded On: 04/03/2013
C.S.I.: Case-Study Investigations - Auditory-Evoked Potentials
Duration: 1.25 hours
Presenters: James W. Hall III, PhD and Jennifer Shinn, PhD
Who Should Attend: AuD students
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the Web seminar will be able to:
1. Identify new application of electrocochleography (ECochG)
2. Identify an advance in frequency specific ABR recording
3. Identify a clinical application of auditory middle latency response
4. Identify new techniques to improve the evoked potential sensitivity.
5. Identify approaches for evaluation of the patient beyond the periphery.
Description: New developments in auditory evoked response measurement are described and highlighted with clinical cases. The session focuses on electrocochleography, auditory brainstem response, and cortical auditory evoked responses.
James W. Hall III, PhD received a Bachelor's degree in biology from American International College, a Masters degree from Northwestern University and, in 1979, his Ph.D. in audiology from Baylor College of Medicine under the direction of Dr. James Jerger. Since then, he has held clinical and academic audiology positions at major medical centers and also maintained a clinical practice, participated in funded research, and served as a clinical instructor and mentor to Doctor of Audiology students. He now holds an appointment as Extraordinary Professor in the Department of Communication Pathology at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Dr. Hall's major clinical and research interests are clinical electrophysiology, auditory processing disorders, tinnitus/hyperacusis, and audiology applications of tele-health. He regularly lectures internationally on these and other audiology and hearing-related topics. Dr. Hall is the author of over 125 peer-reviewed journal articles, monographs, or book chapters, as well as seven textbooks including the Handbook of Otoacoustic Emissions, the New Handbook of Auditory Evoked Responses, Audiologists' Desk Reference (Volumes I and II), Objective Assessment of Hearing and the recently published Otoacoustic Emissions: Principles, Procedures & Protocols.
Jennifer Shinn, PhD received her Bachelor's degree in communication sciences and disorders from the University of Vermont, a Master's degree from East Carolina University and went on to receive her Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut under the direction of Dr. Frank Musiek. Previously she served as the Chief of Audiology and Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky, and is now the Senior Specialist of Research Development with the American Academy of Audiology. She is board certified in Audiology and has a broad experience in a variety of areas of audiology including advanced diagnostics and neuroaudiology, with particular emphasis on diagnosis of auditory processing disorders and subsequent (re)habilitation. She has published both peer reviewed articles as well as book chapters in the above named areas. She recently co-wrote Disorders of the Auditory System. Her presentation record in these areas includes state, national and international levels.
