Washington: Relatively short-term hearing deprivation during childhood may lead to a form of "lazy ear" that affects long-term hearing, says a new study. The research, published by Cell Press in the March issue of the journal Neuron, reveals that, much like the visual cortex, development of the auditory cortex is quite vulnerable if it does not receive appropriate stimulation at just the right time.
"The good news about amblyaudio is that it is unlikely to be a permanent problem for most people", concludes Dr. Polley. "Even if the acoustic signal isn`t improved within the critical period, the mature auditory cortex still expresses a remarkable degree of plasticity. We know that properly designed visual training can improve visual acuity in adult amblyopia patients. We are gearing up now to study whether auditory perceptual training may also be a promising approach to accelerate recovery in individuals with unresolved auditory processing deficits stemming from childhood hearing loss."
