Thirty-six million Americans have hearing loss. Exposure to noise is the culprit in one of three of these people. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is the result of damage to the hair cells in the inner ear. These hair cells convert sounds that we hear into electrical signals that travel to the brain. If these cells… Continue reading Genetic Susceptibility to Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
