Chaired by Linda Hood, PhD, Professor, Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences, Vanderbilt University

Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) is a unique condition that occurs in individuals with normal cochlear active processes but abnormal afferent neural activity resulting from interruption of activity at the level of inner hair cell synapses, the auditory nerve, and/or brainstem.
