This competitive interaction and the need for balanced input between the ears could affect the development of the binaural auditory system [32-35].
Such an arrangement could "preserve or analyze temporal patterns" in the signals being relayed through the auditory system, they report.
His presentation on the effects of hearing loss on development and maturation of the auditory system will be held Thursday, April 19, 8:00 am - 9:30 am in Room 205/207 of the Colorado Convention Center.
SRS Labs develops advanced audio and communications technology that optimizes and improves the listening experience through techniques based on the latest research into the human auditory system.
It can be said that listening to music at high volumes burdens the nerves of the brain and auditory system and can cause a decline in the ability to discriminate sounds, even if the usual hearing test results are normal and the subject is unaware of any changes," said Okamoto.
This delayed response suggests that the auditory system may be slower to develop and mature in children with ASDs," said Roberts.
We used to think that the human auditory system is mostly suppressed during speech, but we found closely knit patches of cortex with very different sensitivities to our own speech that paint a more complicated picture," said Adeen Flinker.
Audience Voice Processors are the first custom ICs that are modeled after the most efficient and accurate auditory system, the human hearing system.

In the auditory system, the organization of sound receptors in the cochlea - the snail-like structure in the ear - is one-dimensional.
It is believed the auditory system in the brain mix and match sounds from different ears and then filter out the unwanted noise.
The authors give a backgrounder in their report saying: "Cochlear implants provide the perception of sound through the conversion of sound stimuli into electrical impulses, which are received by the cochlear nerve and processed by the central auditory system.
Just as the human auditory system can readily ignore background noises while focusing on a voice of interest, Audience's technology enables instantaneous noise suppression up to 25 dB for both stationary and non-stationary noise sources to provide unparalleled voice quality within even the noisiest environments.
They found that the brains of infants with low iron levels in their cord blood had abnormal maturation of auditory system compared to infants with normal cord iron levels.
