2016-11-19 (Sat) 10:30 - 12:00

The Handai-Asahi Nakanoshima Juku offers courses produced and sponsored by Osaka University and the Asahi Culture Center. The Handai-Asahi Nakanoshima Juku was established at the time [Osaka University's] Nakanoshima Center was built in 2004.

These courses share results of research conducted at Osaka University with the general public in an easy-to-understand format. In these lectures, leading lecturers give presentations on topics in culture, art, history, science, technology, health care, as well as seasonal and current topics.

Lecturer: OOTA Yumi (Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University)

There are all kinds of illnesses that cause hearing loss, such as tympanitis and sudden deafness, but everyone experiences hearing loss to some extent as they age. In this lecture, I'll explain the mechanism of hearing, as well as the types and degrees of hearing loss. In particular, I'll explain the kinds of hearing loss that develop in the elderly, as well as their characteristics and methods on how to cope. I'll also give an introduction to hearing aids.
