There is a range of hearing sensitivities which people experience, often with symptoms which sound very similar to each other but have distinct differences. For some people, these sensitivities can be very mild and experienced without too much notice or discomfort. For others, these hearing sensitivities can cause daily discomfort and drastically impact their quality of life.
Stress is generally viewed as something that is unhealthy. However, not all stress is bad, and it can also be healthy. Also known as ‘fight or flight’, stress is an essential primitive response that enables us to either flee a threatening situation or to stay and deal with the threat. Some research shows that there is a healthy range of stress that benefits our brain. There are even specific cognitive tasks which benefit from a small level of stress in our systems, such as emotional or intuitive tasks.
Last week we hosted an evening of dinner and professional discussion at La Fromagerie.
It was wonderful to be part of a gathering of so many health professionals including, Otologists, Psychologists, Neurologists and General Practitioners. We sat together to explore and learn about the links between cognitive neuroscience, otology and audiology so that we can better serve the health and wellbeing of our patients.
Thank you Adam & Jerusha for organising such a most interesting and stimulating evening.
– Mr David Garfield Davies, Consultant ENT Surgeon

That time when I learnt about the importance of hearing – An article by Ruth Penfold, VP, People at Onfido
On 26, Feb 2019 | In News | By Cubex Concierge
We feel so touched by this post by Ruth Penfold, VP of People at Onfido and the daughter of Mr Penfold, a wonderful gentleman that we have the pleasure of looking after. We just had to share.
In conversations with people outside of audiology*, I often find myself struggling to convey how integral hearing is to our identity as humans, or how complex hearing loss is.
Within my PhD, I explored some of the factors underpinning auditory scene analysis, the brain’s ability to use sounds we hear to build a picture of the world around us. As I sit typing this post, my brain is doing exactly that without any conscious effort. I can hear that the clinic room door is open with the gentle murmur of my colleagues talking further down the corridor over the hum of the PC and the faint sound of traffic. The sounds I hear now are meaningful. If you suddenly muted all this ‘background noise’, I would feel uncomfortable and perhaps even unsafe, disconnected from the world around.

MEDITATION IS DIFFICULT
The truth is, it isn’t!
It’s actually quite easy. What makes it appear to be difficult is that most of us do not know where to begin and even if we have tried to meditate, we don’t know how to implement meditation into our fast-paced, demanding modern lives.
