The Effects Of Acoustic Over Stimulation

THE EFFECTS OF ACOUSTIC OVER STIMULATION Abstract Basic aspects of acoustic trauma are presented. Exposure to loud noise leads to an acoustic traumatization with a temporary threshold shift initially and, with increasing exposure, intensity and duration, a permanent hearing loss. Impulse sound such as hammer blows on metal, gun shots and other detonations reaching peak […]

Digital music exposure reliably induces temporary threshold shift in normal-hearing human subjects.

DIGITAL MUSIC EXPOSURE RELIABLY INDUCES TEMPORARY THRESHOLD SHIFT IN NORMAL-HEARING HUMAN SUBJECTS. Abstract OBJECTIVES: One of the challenges for evaluating new otoprotective agents for potential benefit in human populations is the availability of an established clinical paradigm with real-world relevance. These studies were explicitly designed to develop a real-world digital music exposure that reliably induces […]
