Journal Article
Zhang, Y., Bauer, R., Jackson, J. C., Whitmer, W. M., Windmill, J. F. C., & Uttamchandani, D. (2018). A low-frequency dual-band operational microphone mimicking the hearing property of Ormia Ochracea. Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, 27(4), (667-676). doi:10.1109/jmems.2018.2845680. ISSN 1057-7157

This paper introduces a directional MEMS microphone designed for hearing aid applications appropriate to low-frequency hearing impairment, inspired by the hearing mechanism of a fly, the female Ormia ochracea. It uses both piezoelectric and capacitiv... Read More

Systematic review of outcome domains and instruments used in clinical trials of tinnitus treatments in adults (2016)
Journal Article
Hall, D., Haider, H., Szczepek, A., Lau, P., Rabau, S., Jones-Diette, J., …Mazurek, B. (2016). Systematic review of outcome domains and instruments used in clinical trials of tinnitus treatments in adults. Trials, 17(1), doi:10.1186/s13063-016-1399-9

BACKGROUND: There is no evidence-based guidance to facilitate design decisions for confirmatory trials or systematic reviews investigating treatment efficacy for adults with tinnitus. This systematic review therefore seeks to ascertain the current s... Read More
