ABR and CAPD/NeuroAudiology: Some Clarification

julianne
by Frank Musiek, PhD In a recent discussion a question came up asking if ABR was considered a central auditory test. Of course, it is – and a very good one within its limitations.

Pathways: An informative 5 minute read…… The Binaural Interaction Component (BIC)

julianne
by Frank Musiek, PhD While coursing through the literature the other day I came across some relatively recent articles that reported on some recent research on the binaural interaction component or BIC. I was a bit surprised because the BIC’s popularity in the 1980’s seemed to have subsided for many years. Therefore, I thought it appropriate to briefly comment on

Inter-aural intensity difference (IID) Revisited

julianne
Pathways: An informative 5 minute read… by Frank Musiek, PhD In diagnostic audiology procedures are developed, reported and often show promise. However, for some reason of many these procedures are never adopted for clinical use. In this script we will revisit one such audiological procedure – it was termed the inter-aural intensity difference (IID). Marilyn Pinheiro developed this particular procedure

Temporal Ordering: Hirsh Revisited

julianne
by Frank Musiek, PhD One of the first studies to address the issue of auditory temporal processing was published by Ira Hirsh in 1959. In many ways this study also popularized the term “temporal” to the field of audiology. The study was fundamental as it looked at the most basic aspect of placing in the correct order two short acoustic
