Dr Gerry Morrow shares his thoughts on the current state of play when it comes to the early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders, and asks the questions, can we screen, and should we screen?
Dr. Sanchez discusses his research into the auditory system in order to develop therapeutic approaches for people with hearing impairment Neurons within the auditory pathway utilise specialised biophysical properties to precisely encode elements of sound important for normal hearing. For individuals with hearing impairments – like age-related hearing loss, auditory neuropathy, and central auditory...
