I have just spoken of that morbid condition of the auditory nerve
which rendered all music intolerable to the sufferer, with the exception of certain effects of stringed instruments.
Supplementing the 1200 images within the book are 15 outstanding videos available on Thieme's MediaCenter demonstrating the implantation of the diﬀerent cochlear implantation devices that are currently available and the application of brainstem implants in these situations: tumor removal, malformation (missing auditory nerve
in children), and cochlear ossification.
Here, millions of tiny hair cells are stimulated to release glutamate at synapses with the auditory nerve
, triggering impulses to fire along the auditory nerve
to the brain.
Many children born deaf benefit from cochlear implants, electrodes that send impulses to the auditory nerve
, where they're relayed to the brain and recognized as sound.
The implant changes the digital information into electrical information, which is sent to the auditory nerve
from an electrode array placed inside the cochlea.
The auditory nerve
sends the signals to the brain, where they are interpreted as sounds.
The parents said the doctor opened the child's right ear but failed to properly implant new devices that transmit sound directly to her auditory nerve
It has demonstrated that physical changes in myelin itself -the coating of the auditory nerve
carrying sound signals to the brain -- affect our ability to hear.
The treatment lowered the activity of the auditory nerve
, reduced neural hyperactivity in a specific part of the brain that processes sound, and the animals treated with the drug no longer displayed signs of tinnitus.
10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldwide hearing implant leader MED-EL Medical Electronics today announced that Founder and CEO Ingeborg Hochmair, PhD, has been selected to receive this year's prestigious Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award for the development of the modern cochlear implant, a device that restores hearing to individuals with severe-to-profound deafness through electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve
The scientists discovered signs of stress in the auditory nerve
cells of the noise-exposed flies.
In the cochlea thousands of "hair cells" are set in motion and sound is converted to electrical signals which travel along the auditory nerve
to the brainstem for further processing.
