PITTSBURGH, PA - Medical device manufacturer Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI) (www.neuro-kinetics.com) said today that it has licensed rights to patented diagnostic software developed at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) (www.ohsu.edu) that enables medical researchers to perform Pulse-Step-Sine Rotation tests to better understand vestibular system abnormalities.

Throughout the course of his life, Dr. John Shea Jr. has made major historical breakthroughs and advancements in medicine. Recently, Shea donated 406 papers, including more than 300 published articles, to the Memphis Public Library’s Memphis Room that reflect the breadth of his work and perfection of his craft along the way. The library is thrilled to have his entire professional work — papers he has written that document and demonstrate the legacy of a man whose work has revolutionized modern medicine.

Using a magnet to generate an electrical current in areas of the brain that control hearing does not seem to improve ringing in the ears, a new study suggests.
Scientists could distinguish physical from emotional pain, discomfort in study
For the first time, scientists say they've found evidence that physical pain may leave a distinct "signature" in the brain that can be picked up with specialized MRI scans.
Globally, ginkgo biloba leaf extract is widely used to treat dizziness and ringing in the ears.
Tiny cells called hair cells are located in the inner ears of birds and mammals, and are required for normal hearing. They are called hair cells because they actually resemble the hairs on your head. These cells convert sound information into electrical signals that are sent to the brain. Once hair cells die in mammals - including humans - hearing loss is permanent.
Timely brain imaging can detect tiny lesions caused by mild traumatic brain injury or mild concussion, according to a new study.
Researchers noted these tiny lesions are different from other types of lesions associated with more severe brain injuries or concussions. They suggested their findings could lead to the development of new treatment strategies for people who suffer mild traumatic brain injury.

Small Johns Hopkins-led study finds portable device diagnoses stroke with 100 percent accuracy
A bedside electronic device that measures eye movements can successfully determine whether the cause of severe, continuous, disabling dizziness is a stroke or something benign, according to results of a small study led by Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers.
A group of progenitor cells in the inner ear that can become the sensory hair cells and adjacent supporting cells that enable hearing have been identified, a potential breakthrough for people suffering from hearing loss due to damaged or impaired sensory hair cells, according to a paper inDevelopment.
The emerging field of 3-D printing is able to now create artificial human ears that look and act like real ears, researchers say.
The artificial ears could give hope to children born with ear deformities or people who have lost all or part of their ear in an accident or from cancer, said the Cornell University team.
