[Action on Hearing Loss] Soundbite is the monthly newsletter of Action on Hearing Loss focussing on biomedical research. It includes news from their research programme and the projects they are funding around the world, as well as news from the wider world of hearing loss and tinnitus research and the breakthroughs being made.
A brighter future for tinnitus research
The COMIT’ID study (Core Outcome Measures in Tinnitus – International Delphi) aims to improve tinnitus research and potential treatments by creating a standard set of measurable outcomes. The researchers, based at the University of Nottingham, want to hear from people with tinnitus to find out what matters to them. Find out how to get involved in their blog.
Personalised broadcast audio
Complaints about the clarity of speech on television are on the rise. Researchers at the University of Salford are working hard to find technological solutions for people with hearing loss. Find out more in Lauren Ward’s blog.
Predicting how well a cochlear implant will work
European researchers have been studying how the brain adapts to deafness in adult life, and how this affects a person’s ability to hear with a cochlear implant. Find out more from our Research Programme Officer, Carly Anderson.
