  51. SOME DETERMINANTS OF SPEECH PERCEPTION
    Joanne Miller; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..firm basis from which to study both the development of speech processing abilities during the first years of life, and those aspects of speech, language, and hearing disorders that involve acoustic-phonetic processing.
  52. Cross-generational sound change in American English
    Ewa Jacewicz; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..for the development of clinical instruments for the fair and accurate assessment of both speech language and hearing disorders in various regions (and cultures) of the United States...
  53. MAPPING DEAFNESS GENES USING GENOMIC MISMATCH SCANNING
    Vivian Cheung; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..This will eventually affect the prevention, treatment and care of hearing disorders. Genomic mismatch scanning (GMS) is a high-throughput genetic linkage technique that allows physical ..
  54. CONTROL OF PROLIFERATION IN COCHLEAR SENSORY EPITHELIA
    JOHN OBERHOLTZER; Fiscal Year: 2001
    ..observations in animal model systems have suggested that an effective approach to the treatment of those hearing disorders which result from the loss of hair cells might be to stimulate the production of replacements...
  55. MOUSE MODELS OF THE HUMAN HEARING DISORDER DFNA15
    Jian Zuo; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..Thus, this BAC transgenic technology can be widely used for making mouse models of dominant hearing disorders in which the disease genes display complex expression patterns, or in which the mutations are gain-of-..
  56. GENETICS OF HEARING IMPAIRMENT
    Robert Ruben; Fiscal Year: 1990
    ..These will include the application of molecular genetics to human hearing disorders; the role of animal models; a critical presentation of syndromic, non-syndromic and polygenic varieties of ..
  57. SCF Complexes: Key to Understanding Cochlear Homeostasis
    Isolde Thalmann; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Ultimately, the data from this project could provide a foundation for genetic and pharmacologic intervention in hearing disorders.
  58. MECHANISMS OF AUDITORY DYSFUNCTION
    David Nelson; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..will continue to advance our understanding of the characteristics and mechanisms of hearing and hearing dysfunction and will have direct implications for clinical diagnosis and eventual management of hearing disorders.
  59. Functions of Corticofugal Auditory System
    Nobuo Suga; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..will be able to propose possible neural mechanisms for the reorganization of the auditory system caused by hearing disorders. We will study the response properties of cortical and subcortical auditory neurons, and then study how ..
  60. AUDITORY ENHANCEMENT AND SUPPRESSION
    BEVERLY WRIGHT; Fiscal Year: 1999
    ..Finally, a deeper understanding of enhancement and suppression in normal-hearing listeners may aid in the diagnosis and treatment of hearing disorders, because both effects are much smaller in hearing-impaired listeners.
  61. Cadherin regulation of tissue polarity and growth
    Michael Simon; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..new insights into PCP and growth control as well as into the function of protocadherins, which have been implicated in the Usher Syndrome hearing disorders and as tumor suppressors in liver and colon carcinomas. [unreadable] [unreadable]
