My nick is Ornitoring... I have read that fish and birds can regeneration their inner hair cells... I have 3 questions and I would like someone answer them please: 1) Website of Hyperacusis research wrote when finish Hearing Health Summit 2011 this sentence: "a key issue with hyperacusis is getting solid evidence for whether or not hyperacusis patients have hair cell damage. Currently all methods to truly establish hair cell damage can only be done on a destroyed cochlea. In a follow-up discussion, Dr. Heller described that recent advances in optical tomography may soon enable this diagnostic tool to be able to view inside a live cochlea. That breakthrough would enable many in the study of the inner ear to gain much needed understanding for modeling the inner ear and help to finally answer the question for damage for hyperacusis patients" Now we are in 2014... we know the answer? I would like if inner cell regeneration can be hyperacusis solution. 2) I have read that Edge’s team are studying hair inner cells regeneration in Harward. I have a young investigator "friend" in Harward but not in ears... but I would like to ask him something about inner cells regeneration, but what? I suppouse that some saturday night some investigations goes together in the same pub... no? 3) Exist in the world a presencial hyperacusis comunity, a place where hyperacusis people can work, live, funny.. in a rural place? we talking. thanks.
