Theoretical Bases of Audiology - CAUD803

This unit will:
- equip students with the theoretical concepts underpinning audiological assessment techniques and aural rehabilitation strategies. This includes an in-depth review of the anatomy and physiology of the auditory system;
- provide core acoustic concepts including the nature of sound and the principles of sound transmission and room acoustics and discuss how these apply to audiometric test environments and equipment calibration; and
- facilitate the development of problem-solving and clinical reasoning skills, particularly when audiometric information appears inconsistent.
