Academy Research Conference – ARC 13

Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA
Room 303A-D

The Moral of Binaural: Why and How Hearing Should Be Restored to Both Ears

April 3, 2013 (full day conference)
Anaheim, CA

Binaural hearing is essential for processing speech in complex, “real life” auditory environments, but can be significantly compromised by hearing loss and technological limits of current auditory prostheses. Join us for this one-day conference on the latest findings about how the brain responds to binaural information and the ongoing work to translate that knowledge into improved use of intelligent hearing devices.

The impressive lineup of presenters and general topics include:

Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, PhD Foundations of Binaural Hearing
Laura Holden, AuD Deficits Associated with Unilateral Deafness and Cochlear Implantation
Ruth Litovsky, PhD Reestablishing Binaural Hearing in Adults with Progressive Hearing Loss
Karyn Galvin, PhD Bilateral Cochlear Implantation for Children and Young Adults
Industry-Led Forum
