ADVANCED DIAGNOSTIC AUDIOLOGY 1: OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES IN AUDIOLOGY
Credit points: 15
In this course you will learn about concepts and procedures used in objective measurements of hearing and site-of-lesion testing in audiology. Through lectures and workshops, you will learn about the origin of otoacoustic emissions and acoustically evoked potentials of the auditory pathway, including electrocochleography, auditory brainstem responses, middle and late latency potentials, and auditory steady state responses. You will also learn about pathologies involving the central auditory system, and the role of objective assessment strategies and imaging technologies in neuro-otology. Building on this theoretical knowledge, you will develop skills in assessing otoacoustic emissions and auditory evoked potentials, and integrating the results of these objective techniques with behavioural tests used in audiological evaluations. Your learning in this subject will be assessed through written examinations and a laboratory report.
