Nightclubs, Noise and Neurons
Prof. David McAlpine
Macquarie University
Increasing evidence indicates that a single dose of ‘night-club level’ noise damages auditory nerve fibres in the absence of damage to sensory hair cells. This ‘hidden hearing loss’ (HHL)—undetected by conventional tests such as audiometry—is suggested to account for undiagnosed difficulties processing speech in background noise, as well as pathologies such as tinnitus. Here, in animal models and human listeners, I will demonstrate that a homeostatic increase in central gain following nerve damage elicits a cascade of events that can generate tinnitus, render speech sounds less easy to distinguish in background noise, and blur the distinction between different listening environments. Turning down the gain might be one way of treating the complaint ‘‘I hear you but I can’t understand what you’re saying’.
