Underlying Components of Auditory Neuropathy and Hyperbilirubinemia-Related Hearing Loss: Structure and Function of High-Fidelity Temporal ProcessingRecorded April 15, 2016 at AudiologyNOW! 2016 as Structure and Function of High-Fidelity Temporal Processing: A Clinical Perspective
Duration: 2 Hours
Presenters: Stacy J. Weisend, AuD, Jason Tait Sanchez, PhD and Sharon Sandridge, PhD
Who Should Attend: Audiologists, Neurologists, Pediatricians, Researchers
Instructional Level: Advanced
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
- Identify anatomical and physiological components related to auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder and hyperbilirubinemia.
- Define the normal structure and function of the lower auditory pathway.
- Evaluate how problems in structure and function result in the inability to accurately encode time-coding aspects of sound based upon animal research.
Description: High fidelity temporal processing is fundamental for encoding behaviorally relevant communication signals. Recent evidence suggests that temporal processing disorders - difficulties in the auditory system correctly encoding sound - arise from a breakdown in the fast and reliable encoding of acoustic temporal cues. In this module, we (1) describe normal structure and function of time-coding properties in the lower auditory pathway, and (2) highlight clinical cases - specifically auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder and hyperbilirubinemia, where such properties break down.
