  • Cerebral Palsy Studies

    Once learning the basics about Cerebral Palsy (CP), I chose to dig deeper into the more modern diagnostic tools and treatments. As an aspiring Audiologist, I looked into tools I would one day use if I were on a case with an individual with CP and found an article about the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) tool that is being used to determine hearing loss and likelihood of other related disabilities in tandem with CP. The study done showed significance in correlation with most other causes of CP and related disorders, and also proved helpful in determining prognosis of the individual with CP. After looking at the diagnostic angle, I then researched treatment options that are now being explored to help combat the neurological symptoms of CP…

  • Volleyball Observation Report

    I need my brain to know when to move. When playing volleyball, I need to be able to move around in order to get to where the ball had been hit. In order to do this my brain uses neurons to transmit signals to my body that allows me to make quick motions. Sensory neurons send messages from my muscles and sensory organs, like my eyes and ears, to my brain and spinal cord. My brain then processes that message and sends a response back to my muscles via motor neurons. If, for instance, one of my…

  • Acoustic Reflection Lab Report

    First, introduce the stimulus at 70 dB HL, if there is no response increase intensity by 10 dB until a response is seen. When is response is seen, lower the intensity level by 10 dB and if there is no response increase by 5 dB until a threshold can be determined. The tonal duration should be one second and a response is recorded when a deflection is observed to be a minimum of 0.01 to 0.02 mmho.(Martin & Clark, 2012). It has been observed that when the stimulus is louder, the reflex deflection…

At each level, the brain responds to perceived threat which implies that a child raised in an abusive, chaotic and neglectful home creates an association of threats and neural cues. These cues have the capacity to…

  • Five Special Senses

    that contain taste hairs. Taste hairs have receptors in which chemicals are bound and impulses are stimulated. There are five primary taste sensations: sour, sweet, bitter, salty, and umami. Only one of the five tastes is detected by a single taste receptor cell. The sensory impulses from these cells travel on fibers of the glossopharyngeal, facial, and vagus nerves to the medulla oblongata. 3. Sense of Hearing The ear is associated with the sense of hearing. The inner ear, also known as the…

  • Music Therapy And Rehabilitation

    As sound waves enter the ear, they travel through the outer ear, the external auditory canal, and strike the eardrum (tympanic membrane) causing it to vibrate. The central part of the eardrum is connected to a small bone of the middle ear called the malleus (hammer). As the malleus vibrates, it transmits the sound vibrations to the other two small bones (incus, stapes) or ossicles of the middle ear, the incus and stapes. As the stapes moves, it pushes a structure called the oval window in and…
