    Sammanfattning : Central auditory processing is complex and can not be evaluated by a single method. This thesis focuses on assessment of some aspects of central auditory functions by the use of dichotic speech tests and cognitive tests that tax functions important for speech processing. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hearing-related symptoms among women - Occurrence and risk in relation to occupational noise and stressful working conditions

  4. 4. Clinical and Genetic Studies of Hearing Impairment

    Författare :Carina Frykholm; Ulla Friberg; Hans-Christian Larsen; Niklas Dahl; Marie-Louise Bondeson; Lisbeth Tranebjaerg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Otorhinolaryngology; NF2; array-CGH; Meniere’s disease; PIK3C2G; X-linked; progressive; hearing impairment; Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Sammanfattning : Monogenic disorders offer a possibility for studies of genetic disturbances in hearing impairment—a knowledge which could be essential for development of future treatment options. In this thesis, the underlying genetic disturbances in neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) and familial Meniere’s disease (FMD) were evaluated, and familial X-linked hearing impairment was described from a clinical point of view.
