The ‘Human-ness of Hearing’

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.

The Benefits of Microsuction Wax Removal

On 23, Sep 2018 | In Hear&Now | By Rosie Williams

Microsuction is an ear wax removal technique which is safe, comfortable and pain-free. It involves the use of a binocular microscope which provides a clear and magnified view of the ear canal. With such a clear view, a fine low-pressure suction device can be used to remove any ear wax obstructions safely.

So what are the main benefits of microsuction, when compared to more traditional ear wax removals methods such as syringing or ear irrigation?

Invitation to take part in a hearing study at UCL Ear Institute

On 26, Jul 2018 | In News | By Jerusha Shulberg

We need people who wear hearing aids to trial a new spatial speech test with our colleagues at the UCL Ear Institute in Kings Cross, London.

Often hearing aid users report difficulty hearing speech in noisy environments as well as identifying where the speech is coming from and the UCL Ear Institute have developed a new way of testing this to work towards improving the performance of hearing aid technology in these situations.

The test will take place at the UCL Ear Institute in Kings Cross, London, and involves identifying words in background noise as well as their location, while you wear your hearing aids. You would need to attend the UCL Ear Institute for one session which lasts around 1 -2 hours. Your travel expenses will be reimbursed and you will be paid £10 per hour as a token of our gratitude.

If you would like more information, have any questions or would like to sign up to the study then please get in touch here!
