mental health Archives - Cubex
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
So many thanks to all of you at Cubex, for a splendid evening & great conversation. Clearly, you had put such a lot of thought and time into preparing the most interesting talks and forward-thinking discussions. A feast for the mind and the body!

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.
