Hidden Hearing Loss: Synaptopathy in noise-induced and age related cochlear damage: Berkeley Ear Club

Colloquium | April 17 | 4 p.m. | Tolman Hall, Beach Room 3105

 Charles Liberman, Mass Eye & Ear Eaton Peabody Lab Boston

 Department of Psychology

The classic view of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is that the “primary” targets are hair cells, and that cochlear-nerve loss is “secondary” to hair cell degeneration. Our recent work in mouse and guinea pig has challenged that view. In noise-induced hearing loss, exposures causing only reversible threshold shifts (and no hair cell loss) nevertheless cause permanent loss of >50% of...   More >

Colloquium | April 19 | 12:10-1:15 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall

 Leif Nelson, Professor, Haas School of Business

 Institute of Personality and Social Research

Transparency, disclosure, and preregistration have revealed that some statistically underpowered studies may be propped up by selective reporting and p-hacking. Conscientious researchers therefore have renewed investment in statistical power. One approach is to conduct traditional power analysis to correctly set the sample size. I argue that this tool is not helpful and often biased toward...   More >

Social relationships can enhance the quality of life by conferring higher levels of subjective well-being, greater resilience against adverse circumstances, and better health.

Seminar | April 21 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 5101 Tolman Hall

 Emily Martin, New York University

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

Historians of psychology have described how the "introspection" of early Wundtian psychology largely came to be ruled out of experimental psychology settings by the mid-20th century.
