In a new study in  Science Translational Medicine , a team from the University of Michigan reports the results of the first animal tests and

A single treatment of a genome editing agent partially preserved hearing in mice with genetic deafness. The work could one day help scientists treat certain forms of genetic hearing loss in humans. Using molecular scissors wrapped in a greasy delivery package, researchers have disrupted a gene variant that leads to deafness in mice. A single treatment involving injection of a

Elderly patients who experience age-related hearing loss (ARHL) may be at greater risk for cognitive decline and impairment compared with elderly patients with no hearing loss, according to findings from a systematic review published in  JAMA Otolaryngology: Head & Neck Surgery . The number of dementia cases in this study was small, possibly limiting the overall power of the findings. In addition, the investigators

Tinnitus is the perception of noise, often ringing, in the ear. The condition is very common, affecting approximately one

Inner ear stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness, but the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk, according to a study led by Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists. The encouraging

It was once thought that hearing loss in older women might be linked to loss of estrogen and progesterone following menopause and that hormone therapy might reduce that risk. Recent results from the Nurses' Health Study II indicate just the opposite — that late natural menopause and the use of oral hormone therapy are linked to a higher risk of

Prolonged exposure to loud noise alters how the brain processes speech, potentially increasing the difficulty in distinguishing speech sounds, according to neuroscientists at The University of Texas at Dallas. In a paper published in  Ear and Hearing , researchers demonstrated for the first time how noise-induced hearing loss affects the brain's recognition of speech sounds. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) reaches
