 Hugh Davies Project

Investigating ‘hidden’ noise-induced hearing loss

Hidden hearing loss describes the fact that a large number of individuals report great difficulty in real-world listening environments despite having ‘normal’ hearing as determined by standard diagnostic procedures. This project, at the University of Manchester, aims to better understand the extent of this problem, the nature and causes of this type of hearing loss and to identify ways in which it can be robustly diagnosed in the future.
