What is neuroaudiology? Neuroaudiology is the study and clinical activity related to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the auditory nervous system. Neuroaudiology focuses on the auditory nerve and the central auditory nervous system and disorders that impact hearing related to these structures.
You must be referred by an audiologist or other professional to be seen at the Dalhousie Neuroaudiology Clinic. If you have not had your hearing tested yet, you may book an appointment at the Dalhousie Audiology Clinic or at the Nova Scotia Hearing and Speech Centres for a hearing test.
Individuals who are seeking help at the Dalhousie Neuroaudiology Clinic for their hearing difficulties or complaints may have a variety of conditions such as:
- Learning disabilities with auditory difficulties
- Vascular disorders such as stroke
- Degenerative disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease
- Tumors or mass lesions that may impact the auditory tracts of the brain
- Heavy metals and toxins exposure
- Trauma and head injury
- Temporal lobe epilepsy
- Surgical intervention that alters central auditory function
