ASA, CDC Plan Revamp of Sound-Related Wikipedia Pages for International Year of Sound 2020

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

As harmful effects of noise are becoming more widely known, popular internet websites are increasingly being used as resources of information. For the International Year of Sound 2020 (#IYS2020), the Acoustical Society of America and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, part of the CDC, took the lead in designing the online event Wiki4YearOfSound2020. The event will facilitate the improvement of Wikipedia content in topics related to acoustics, communication, music, noise and soundscapes.

Reprogramming the Inner Ear to Regrow Hair Cells Shows Promise to be an Effective Target for Hearing Loss Treatments

Massachusetts Eye and Ear

Mass. Eye and Ear scientists report the identification of a new pathway linked to cell division in the ear. With this pathway, they were able to reprogram the inner ear’s cells to proliferate and regenerate hair cell-like cells in adult mouse models.

Low Frequency Sound May Predict Tornado Formation

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

How can you tell when a storm is going to produce a tornado even before the twister forms? Research from Oklahoma State University and University of Nebraska-Lincoln indicates prior to tornado formation, storms emit low-frequency sounds.

Shaking Head to Get Rid of Water in Ears Could Cause Brain Damage

American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics

Trapped water in the ear canal can cause infection and even damage, but it turns out that one of the most common methods people use to get rid of water in their ears can also cause complications. Researchers show shaking the head to free trapped water can cause brain damage in small children.

For better research results, let mice be mice

University at Buffalo

Animal models can serve as gateways for understanding many human communication disorders, but a new study from the University at Buffalo suggests that the established practice of socially isolating mice for such purposes might actually make them poor research models for humans, and a simple shift to a more realistic social environment could greatly improve the utility of the future studies.
