Scientists have identified new pain relief targets that could be used to provide relief from chemotherapy-induced pain.
In a study published in the April 6 online edition of the journal Nature, a team of Columbia University Medical Center researchers led by Ellen Lumpkin, PhD, associate professor of somatosensory biology, solve an age-old mystery of touch: how cells just beneath the skin surface enable us to feel fine details and textures.
A study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has helped solve a long-standing mystery about the sense of touch.
Sharks are highly-evolved killing machines and a new study published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE has compiled a comprehensive picture of how these marine predators hunt – from start to finish.
Welch brings more than 25 years of leadership and global healthcare industry expertise to IRIS as the company expands its regional and national footprint
For an animal without external ears, alligators have a strong sense of directional hearing and a new study published on Wednesday in the Journal of Experimental Biology has revealed that the reptiles’ refined hearing is result of large, air-filled canals connecting two middle ears.
MDHearingAid brings both increased comfort and a more natural sound to budget-minded hearing aid users with new thin tubing and open-fit ear domes on its premium analog hearing aid, the MDHearingAid
A University of Maryland-led team of biologists shows that alligators can keenly detect the direction of sounds because of large, air-filled channels connecting the two middle ears.
researchers report that people with balance disorders or dizziness traceable to an inner-ear disturbance show distinctive abnormal eye movements when the affected ear is exposed to the strong pull of an MRI's magnetic field.
Computers have been largely unable to duplicate a person’s ability to tune into a single voice, even in the midst of background noise, but new research into the biological mechanisms of the human ear could soon change that.
The ear is an organ from the auditory system that collects sounds, and also balances and enables body position. Formation and Orientation The ear can be broken down into the inner and outer ears. The outer part of the ear is the visible flap (auricle) and ear canal which collects sounds which create pressure that echoes through the middle ear. The inner ear, however, is embedded in the temporal bone. There are hollow areas of the inner ear that are filled with liquids and hair cells...
