US hearing health, better telephone speech

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.

Even if you can't make it to the meeting, the ASA World Wide Press Room (http://www.acoustics.org/press) now contains more than 25 lay-language papers on some of the most exciting new meeting results. Examples of some papers are listed near the end of this release. A few additional latebreaking papers will be added to the site in the time leading up to the meeting. The WW Press Room also includes links to the general press release for the meeting, and a searchable database of all meeting abstracts.
