Auditory Implant Service

Hearing beyond the audiogram

Helping people hear better is not just about enabling listeners to pick up quieter sounds-it is also about maximising the ability of the brain to interpret sound, through combining sound across two ears, and maximising the potential for listening in background noise, including those with Auditory Processing Disorder. Specific areas are:

  • Bilateral and binaural hearing
  • Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)
  • Speech perception in noiseNicci-234x300
  • Ageing and hearing
  • Assistive listening devices
  • Telephone training

The lead staff member in this area is Dr Nicci Campbell. Nicci was recently awarded the Ruth Spencer prize at the BSA conference 2016 in recognition of her contribution to the Audiology and for her contribution at international level to the field of APD in particular.
