JOURNAL ARTICLE
Miaomiao Yin, Liling Cui, Yue Zhang
Background Hypertrophic olivary degeneration (HOD) is a rare disorder that typically develops in the weeks to months following a structural brainstem or cerebellar lesion in the Guillain-Mollaret triangle (GMT). Clinically, patients with HOD present with palatal myoclonus and nystagmus, which are difficult to treat and rarely resolve. Purpose The purpose of this case is to present the results of vestibular and balance assessments of a patient with bilateral HOD before and after vestibular rehabilitation. Methods This case report describes a 43-year-old trucker who presented with dizziness, blurred vision, and balance problems for more than 10 months, accompanied by new-onset tremors and ataxia for more than 6 months...

PURPOSE: Mismatch negativity (MMN) reflects a pre-perceptual neurophysiological response that is generated subconsciously due to the interruption of a memory trace of ongoing sensory events in the environment. It has been widely used by researchers to understand complex perceptual mechanisms. Furthermore, it has been recommended as an objective tool to investigate disorders related to auditory cognition in hearing aid and cochlear implant users. Many researchers suggest that utilizing a larger acoustic difference between standard and deviant stimuli within the oddball paradigm will lead to a more robust MMN response...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Dina Lelic, Florian Wolters, Nadja Schinkel-Bielefeld
BACKGROUND: Recently, we developed a hearing-related lifestyle questionnaire (HEARLI-Q) which asks respondents to rate their hearing aid (HA) satisfaction in 23 everyday listening situations. It is unknown how HA satisfaction on the retrospective HEARLI-Q scale compares to HA satisfaction measured on the same scale implemented in Ecological Momentary Assessments (EMA). PURPOSE: To learn how retrospective (HEARLI-Q) and in-situ (EMA) assessments can complement each other...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Brady Workman, Alan Desmond
Vestibular neuritis is one of the most common reasons that someone may experience an episode of acute spontaneous vertigo, with the majority cases impacting only one ear. Cases of bilateral vestibular neuritis are rare and are thought to account for less than 10% of all cases of vestibular neuritis. 18,1,9,15,12 Skull vibration testing is an efficient means to screen for asymmetry in vestibular function but is still in its infancy in clinical use. The ideal assessment methods and the typical patterns of skull vibration induced nystagmus are relatively well understood, however, the presentation of skull vibration induced nystagmus in atypical labyrinthine pathology is less clear...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Marc Brennan, Daniel Rasetshwane, Judy Kopun, Ryan Mccreery
BACKGROUND: Nonlinear frequency compression (NFC) is a signal processing technique designed to lower high frequency inaudible sounds for a listener to a lower frequency that is audible. Because the maximum frequency that is audible to a listener with hearing loss will vary with the input speech level, the input level used to set nonlinear frequency compression could impact speech recognition. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of the input level used to set nonlinear frequency compression on nonsense syllable recognition...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported the results of exploratory factor analysis (EFA) of the Hyperacusis Impact Questionnaire (HIQ), the Sound Sensitivity Symptoms Questionnaire (SSSD) and the Screening for Anxiety and Depression in Tinnitus (SAD-T). Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) is necessary to confirm the latent constructs determined using EFA. CFA should use different samples but with similar characteristics to those used for EFA. PURPOSE: The aim was to use CFA to confirm latent constructs derived using EFA of the HIQ, SSSQ and SAD-T...

BACKGROUND: Cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs) are predominantly ipsilateral, myogenic responses originating from saccular activation. Some individuals have contralateral-crossed cVEMP responses with monaural air-conducted stimulation (ACS) which can contaminate cVEMP responses with bilateral stimulation. While the origin of the contralateral-crossed response is under debate, its presence has implications for cVEMP testing with midline bone conduction vibration (BCV)...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Adele Evans, Morgan Baudoin, Haley Knight, Amanda Giles
Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) is a spectrum of conditions marked by diminished auditory function and believed to be caused by the impaired neural transmission of auditory stimulation in the setting of functional outer hair cells (Rance1). There are reports of "spontaneously resolving" or "transient" ANSD (TAN) in the literature. In this case report of TAN, we demonstrate the resurgence of the ABR waveform morphology over a 3-year period to reveal electrophysiologic testing consistent with the subject's functional hearing level by age 3 years...

BACKGROUND: There have been conflicting results on the effect of auditory stimulation on the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) with some studies indicating suppression, enhancement, or no effect. No studies to date have assessed the effect of sound source location on VOR gain or the relationship between spatial hearing ability and VOR gain. PURPOSE: The purpose of the present study was to determine if VOR gain was affected by moving the location of the sound source within participants and to determine if these effects were related to spatial hearing ability...

BACKGROUND: Misophonia is a decreased tolerance of certain sounds related to eating noises, lip smacking, sniffing, breathing, clicking sounds, and tapping. While several validated self-report misophonia questionnaires exist, none focus solely on the impact of misophonia on the patient's life. Additionally, there are no available validated pediatric self-report measures of misophonia. Therefore, a tool was needed to assess the impact of misophonia on both adult and pediatric patients...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Terrin N Tamati, Kathleen F Faulkner, David Pisoni
BACKGROUND: Speech recognition in adult cochlear implant (CI) users is typically assessed using sentence materials with low talker variability. Little is known about the effects of talker variability on speech recognition in adult CI users, the factors underlying individual differences in speech recognition with high talker variability, or how sentence materials with high talker variability could be utilized clinically. PURPOSE: To examine the effects of talker variability on sentence recognition in adult CI users, using sentences from the Perceptually Robust English Sentence Test Open-Set (PRESTO), and to examine the relation between working memory capacity and high-variability speech recognition...

BACKGROUND: The Dichotic Digits Test (DDT) evaluates central auditory nervous system (CANS) dysfunction. The DDT is widely used in audiology clinics worldwide because it is clinically efficient and has good sensitivity and specificity for CANS lesions. However, the DDT shows a strong ceiling effect, which can mitigate its ability to detect subtle CANS dysfunction. PURPOSE: This study examines the effects of adding monaural and binaural speech-spectrum noise to the DDT in an effort to make the test more taxing to the CANS and thereby reduce the observed ceiling effect...

BACKGROUND: Cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs) and masseter vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (mVEMPs) are considered to have a common saccular origin. While a few studies have examined both VEMPs in individuals with brainstem disorders as part of a test battery, the relation between these two potentials has rarely been the subject of discussion. PURPOSE: The present study explored the relation between mVEMPs and cVEMPs using EMG-scaled parameters in normal-hearing young adults...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Seval Ceylan, Sule Kaya
Background The CE-Chirp stimulus used in the ABR was developed to compensate for the cochlear wave delay. As a version of broadband CE-Chirp stimulus, the use of level-specific (LS) CE-Chirp stimuli, which are created with varying delay models suitable for the intensity levels at which the sound is transmitted, is becoming increasingly common. Purpose The aim of this study was to compare click auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) with LS CE-Chirp ABR thresholds in adults with sensorineural hearing loss. Research Design The research is a cross-sectional-analytical research...
