Hearing Research - Current Insights

  • Brian Moore has recently published a review of the unique audiometric characteristics of hearing loss demonstrated by noise-exposed military veterans. Moore, Brian C.J. (2020). Diagnosis and quantification of military noise-induced hearing loss, The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America 148, 884.

  • NIOSH researchers, along with a world-wide consortium of colleagues, have published an evaluation of ISO Standard 1999 (2013) predictions of noise-induced permanent threshold shift (NIPTS) in workers exposed to various types of high-intensity noise levels, and the role of the kurtosis metric in assessing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Zhang et al.
