Effects of Concussion on Vestibular and Central Auditory Processing Function: How Can We Use Past and Current Knowledge to Shape Future Diagnostic and Rehabilitation Techniques?
The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.
This session will review the pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury, including those related to vestibular and balance function, as well as central auditory processing skills, which are heavily influenced by the integrity of white matter structures in the brain. Specific attention will be brought to the audiologist’s unique role in contributing to the diagnosis, treatment and management of concussion as part of an interdisciplinary team. A hands-on demonstration of diagnostic and clinical management procedures, including bedside measures, will be provided.
