The paper puts a long-standing debate to rest.
The answer is certainly debated.
First whole-body CT scan of a minke whale yields insights on whale communication
Roosters have evolved soft tissue over the inner ear that protects them from their own clamor.
They can hear you being salty because they can hear everything.
Using an innovative genetic editing technique, researchers have managed to partially restore both heating and balance in mice born with a condition that affects both.
Tingling spider senses.
The study might help answer whether neanderthals were capable of the same communication abilities as humans.
Congress was not happy with Bresch’s or the FDA’s answers.
Wearable tech could save the hearing of thousands of soldiers.
I like my ears. I’ve been told they go well with my face and they’re really efficient at holding my hair out of my eyes, like ad hoc hair band. And I get two of them! Yay for ears!
But (spoiler alert) these are not our ears’ primary functions. The workings of our ears’ internal mechanisms underpin two of our senses — hearing and balance (called equilibrioception).
Mice with genetic hearing loss could sense and respond to noises after receiving working copies of their faulty genes, researchers report. Because the mice’s mutated genes closely correspond to those responsible for some hereditary human deafness, the scientists hope the results will inform future human therapies.
Listening to loud music has been shown time and time again to affect hearing in a negative way. The damage becomes more pronounced with age, leading to difficulties in understanding speech. A new analytic study by researchers at University of Leicester examined the cellular mechanisms that underlie hearing loss and tinnitus triggered by exposure to loud sound. Music to your ears
Hearing loss is a grave healthcare problem around the world, with 50 million cases in the US alone. The most common type is sensorineural hearing loss caused by the degradation and loss of sensory hair cells in the cochlea (the auditory part of the inner ear). While implants and various other hearing aids can improve hearing a tad, significant improvement can
In an exceptional feat of medical and technical ingenuity, scientists have been able to restore partial hearing to deaf gerbils by implanting modified human embryonic stem cells in their ears. The success rate is pleasing, and offers solid ground on which human trials with a similar treatment might commence. There are many causes which might lead to hearing loss. The
After she suffered a stroke, a 36-year-old professor started to feel sounds. In the beginning she didn’t know what was happening when a radio announcer’s voice made her tingle, or when during a flight she became physically uncomfortable. Neuroscientist at the City College of New York and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York believe they understand
