Hearing with the mind. Can you hear me? Why do I have to shout for you to listen? One of the five senses is that of hearing. Songs have been written about hearing, but, how do we know how much we’re hearing? And how is this all connected to the mind? Loss of hearing can alter one’s life, queries that touch us all.
Andrew Sciberras, an audiologist will be tackling questions about hearing, hearing loss and cochlear implants in the next Malta Café Scientifique talk: Hearing with the mind. The event will be on Thursday 12th December (eve of a public holiday), 7.30pm (doors open 7.15) Music Room, St James Cavalier, Valletta.
So hear Andrew out in this exciting talk about how the ear and the mind control our hearing and listening.
