Clinical applications of Speech Evoked Cortical Auditory Potentials (SECAPs) in Pediatric Hearing assessment & Aural habilitation-A case report.

2015-01-01 Muhammed, A., Prabhu, P

Speech evoked cortical auditory potentials (SECAPs) are generated from the primary auditory areas of the brain in responses to an acoustic stimulation. Though, the cortical maturation is incomplete in young children, an exogenous potential recording with a speech stimulus would give a positive peak-P1 with a post stimulus latency of 120-150 ms. The potential clinical application of these evoked potentials are merely reported in scientific community due to its recording limitations and also due to the lack of clinical data. Therefore we report a clinical case, where cortical evoked potential measures are effectively used in paediatric assessment and in aural rehabilitation. Further, it would help in the widespread application of SECAP in clinical practice Global Research Analysis, 1(2), 88-89.

Perceptual challenges in auditory neural processing in neurodegenerative conditions like Fredereich Ataxia.

2012-02-01 Muhammed, A.

Friedreich ataxia (FA) is considered as a neurodegenerative disorder and is the most frequent type of hereditary ataxia. FA is characterized by degeneration in several spinal tracts, dorsal roots and peripheral nerves. Due to the disruption in the neural function, these individuals pose certain perceptual challenges in understanding speech in the presence of noise. Auditory nerve is considered as an important structure for the neural processing of acoustic sounds. Any break down in its function will result in auditory processing deficits. These difficulties can only be identified with detailed test battery approach which includes both behavioural and electrophysiological tests. Therefore in the present case study, we aim to highlight the auditory processing deficits in FA which resulted in the identification of auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) a rare neural disorder seen in individuals with FA. Further it sheds light in to the possible management options in individual with ANSD. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, 1(2), 142-143.

Comparison of PMLU in Kannada speaking Down's syndrome and Typically Developing Children

2011-01-01 John, S., Mohite, S B Rajashekhar

Phonological Mean Length of Utterance, (PMLU) is a whole word measure for determining phonological proficiency and is one of the new tools for quantifying development of word forms in both normal and clinical population. Even though PMLU measures phonological proficiency, its utility in clinical populations like Down's syndrome is not clearly understood. Since there is a scarcity of information on PMLU measures, the present study focuses on comparing PMLU scores in Kannada speaking Down's syndrome and language age matched normal children. Two groups of Kannada speaking children were included in the study: Group 1 composed of normal children (n = 60 and chronological age of 3-4 years) matching the language age of group 2. Group 2 comprised of children with Down's syndrome (n = 35 and chronological age of 6-15 years) with mild to moderate mental retardation and expressive language age of 3-4 years. Picture naming task using Kannada Articulation test was done and 25 words were randomly selected for PMLU analysis. Samples were recorded using digital professional voice recorder and the children's utterances were calculated for PMLU measures. Obtained scores were analysed using SPSS 16.0 version by Independent t- test with p value kept at 0.05. The results revealed statistically significant difference in PMLU scores between Down's syndrome population and typically developing children. These reduced scores are indicative of poor whole word complexity in children with Down's syndrome. Findings of the study indicate that PMLU measure could be a benchmark in assessing the phonological skills in disordered population. Language in India, 11(5).
