    About This Project

    Hearing loss is one of the top disabilities facing veterans, with over $1 Billion in disability payments per year. Auditory dysfunction (AD) can lead to isolation and depression due to difficulty in understanding speech. Sadly, veterans are left to cope with AD, which has no accepted treatments. To better serve our veterans, we are developing a novel approach to treat AD, by training the auditory cortex to better process complex sounds.
