Dr. Carey Balaban is a Professor of Otolaryngology in the School of Medicine, with secondary appointments in Neurobiology, Communication Sciences and Disorders, and Bioengineering and Director of the Center for National Preparedness. This presentation summarizes a facet of the Office of Naval Research (Code 34) Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Program. Basic research from the 1960s through 1980s on the effects of acoustic and electromagnetic energy exposures provide potential insights into mechanistic bases for effects on the inner ear and other intracranial contents. There are COTS devices that can produce exposures of interest. We will describe a fieldable test technology that can objectively discriminate (1) control subjects, (2) individuals with an acute concussion and (3) affected individuals from Havana.
