Which US population groups have the best and worst hearing, according to a new study? Do whales use their sonar as an x-ray system to identify their dinner? How have researchers improved cell-phone sound quality without changing the existing telecommunications infrastructure? What amazing ultrasound trick did scientists employ to perform what may be the first noninvasive delivery of a medical compound into a specific region of a living brain? These questions will all be answered in a web pressroom and a press luncheon for the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) meeting in Providence, RI.
The luncheon will be held on Tuesday, June 6 from 11:30 a.m.-1:15 p.m. in the Blackstone Room of The Westin Providence (One West Exchange St, Providence, RI). The speakers and topics are listed below. The entire acoustics meeting takes place from June 5-9, 2006. Reporters who wish to attend the luncheon, the meeting, or both, should reply to this message and fill out the form at the end of this release.
