Now Reading: Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman
Now reading: Hearing, an introduction & practical guide. Edited by JR Tysome and RG Kanegaonkar
Hearing Hearing is essential for normal communication. We are able to localise sound with surprising accuracy and can detect time differences as small as the time it takes for sound to pass from the mouth of one person to the ear of another. However, hearing loss is underdiagnosed, poorly understood and a common cause of social isolation. Hearing: An Introduction and Practical Guide provides a basic understanding of the science of hearing, the causes of hearing loss and how hearing loss can be clinically assessed and effectively treated.
