Pocket being justly celebrated for giving most excellent practical advice, and for having a clear and sound perception of things and a highly judicious mind, I had some notion in my heartache of begging him to accept my confidence.
In the ear, hair cells (HCs) are critical for sound perception, but degenerate as we age.
It is generally believed that the larger the perforation on the tympanic membrane, the greater the decibel loss in sound perception. A total absence of the tympanic membrane would lead to a loss in the transformer action of the middle ear.
The body structure is connected through this material (bone), and therefore any mechanical vibration that is projected to the skull will be advantageous in sound perception, an involuntary part of listening.
Based on frequency and permanence of sound perception, tinnitus is classified in continuous low frequency tinnitus (CLFT) for frequencies below 100 Hz, continuous high frequency tinnitus (CHFT) for frequencies above 3 kHz, and transient spontaneous tinnitus (TST) [5].

Sound perception as reflected by SRT values improved to a similar degree in the two groups.
BAER is carried out by monitoring the electrical activity of the areas of the brain involved with sound perception (using small, painless electrodes placed under the skin at specific sites on the head) while exposing cats to sounds of known frequency and intensity.
Psychoacoustics describing sound perception mechanisms is another important field of the different dimensions involved in the soundscape evaluation process (Genuit, Fiebig 2006)).
Unlike the noises of the human bronchopulmonary system, most sound vibrations reasoned by heart sounds and noises are beyond the limits of sound perception. Therefore, during the registration of phonocardiograms an acoustic sensor should register sound vibrations beyond perception by ear.
The collaborative work allowed us to provide gene therapy to reverse the loss of nerve cells in the ears of these deaf mice." Although this approach is short of improving hearing in these mice, it has important implications for the enhancement of sound perception with a cochlear implant, used by many people whose connexin 26 mutation has led to impaired hearing.
