It has been an honour to co-ordinate this special issue of CanadianAudiologist.ca to celebrate and fete the life and work of Dr. Brian Moore.
Throughout the years Brian has provided me with his kind mentorship, guidance, and support that shaped not only my academic career but the person I am now and the way I see life. He is one special person.
For many auditory researchers, music is cited as a strong motivator for first entering the field. Brian Moore is an excellent example.
Brian thoroughly deserves this special issue, and we all look forward to not quite catching up with his publication record for many years to come.
Brian Moore’s Auditory Perception Lab was an invigorating environment to work and Brian was then (and still is) an inspiration, balancing exquisitely designed psychophysical experiments with the development of meaningful diagnostic hearing tests and interventions for real-world applications.
Brian’s work has had a lasting impact on me as a student, teacher, and researcher throughout my career. His contribution to the world of hearing goes well beyond one discipline and has influenced and shaped the work of many researchers and clinicians across the globe.
Brian strides over the field of psychoacoustics like a laid-back colossus, albeit one who wears socks with his sandals.
Brian’s research has helped identify specific issues associated with using hearing aids for music. Hopefully, this knowledge can help in the development of future hearing aids that are better for music.
Brian wrote his PhD thesis in 1971 and he is retiring at age 75? That would be 50 years worth of new knowledge to the field of audiology. Well done! Who could ask for anything Moore?
Proper scientific writing requires a keen sense of proportion, an assertive taste for parsimony and above all, elegance. This is Brian CJ Moore.
Within our field, we are very grateful for the work that Brian Moore has done, and it is safe to say that his work has benefitted many individuals with hearing loss around the globe.
High thresholds in the TEN are likely in all cases to be associated with a poor ability to understand speech when background sounds are present.
Understanding potential listening barriers and identifying how to effectively maximize communication is the key to holding a successful virtual meeting.
A handheld microphone is a microphone like all others. However, how you hold the microphone affects the sound. Some use this to their advantage; others don't realize this is the case. This article explains how your sound may change depending on how you hold the microphone.
Measurements and assessment of most noises are relatively easy and have commonly accepted standards There are, however, situations, where most of the energy is concentrated in the lower end of the audible spectra, where the assessment presents problems that are not yet solved.
After finding a copy of Dorothy Scott’s 80 Years of Looking & Learning, Gael Hannan takes a trip back in time to see what life was like in the past for people with hearing loss.
