Seminar Topic
Threshold and Suprathreshold Measures of Hearing

Presentation Summary
Audiologic assessment has two main purposes: (1) The characterization of hearing ability for medico-legal reasons, and (2) Identification of communicative impairment followed up by (hopefully) remediation. In this presentation, we will briefly discuss established site-of-lesion audiologic tests, including both threshold and suprathreshold measured. For the last part of the presentation, we will discuss poorly understood auditory disorders that are seemingly undetectable by established site-of-lesion tests and future diagnostic directions.
