The study of non-auditory effects of everyday environmental noise such as sleep disruptions and annoyance are not traditionally part of audiology. Most of the researchers are not audiologists, and the journals, while well-respected and peer-reviewed, are not mainstream audiology publications. This white paper is a primer for this important area of study and will also appear on the Canadian Academy of Audiology website at www.CanadianAudiology.ca.
Non-auditory Effects of Lower-Level Environmental Noise This issue of CanadianAudiologist.ca is about audiology and also not about audiology. The topic of how lower levels of environmental noise affect the body has been formally studied since 1946, yet has not shown anything definitive about long-term effects related to sleep disruption, annoyance, or overall stress.

Audiological Research Over Six DecadesJames Jerger, PhDPlural Publishing, Inc.ISBN # 978-1-63550-370-8 Reviewed by Marshall Chasin, AuD I must admit to being a voyeur… or at least a historical voyeur. Audiological Research Over Six Decades provides us with a historical glimpse into how the research was performed, and its evolution, and in some cases, its return…
James Curran looks back at a time when, if an audiologist dispensed (sold) a hearing aid, it was considered unethical behavior by the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and resulted in membership expulsion and loss of professional certification.
In celebration of his life’s work, friends and colleagues share their thoughts on the outstanding career of Dr. Richard Salvi.
Our intrepid explorer Marshall Chasin travels to more to than 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle and experimented with the effect of the lower speed of sound in the Arctic.
Marshall looks at the pros and cons of the multitude of apps that can turn smartphones into sound-level meters, recording devices, playback devices, and to be coupled with external devices for hearing aids.
With apologies to Buzz Lightyear, Marshall’s column sees us, “Going Beyond the Phoneme…to the Word and Beyond!”
