Technology and science are working to restore, replace, and supercharge the powerful human sense of hearing. Meet a man who is blind whose hearing is so acute that he can navigate a bicycle by the sound of the echo of a click. This episode also highlights some of the advances made in hearing aids and work being done by researchers to use sound to improve cognition and memory during sleep. Part of the “Human + The Future of Our Senses” series.
Dr. Kimberly Dodge became deaf at the age of eight. She knew she wanted to work with animals by the time she was in eighth grade. Today she is an emergency veterinarian at the Connecticut Veterinary Center. This is a short segment from the "Achieving Goals! Career Stories of Individuals Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing: Phenomenal Professionals."
Will Roach never pictured himself working for Boeing. However with the help of two STEM degrees, he is now a full-time employee and works as a Production System Build Integrator. He ensures that the building process of the airplanes runs smoothly. Part of the "Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing STEM Professionals" series.
Explores how ears work and how ears help us communicate with the world. Explains common ear problems, including blockage, infection, and hearing impairment. Discusses symptoms of these conditions and introduces doctor's diagnostic tools. Emphasizes healthy habits and stresses not to put anything in your ears smaller than your elbow. Talks about how children with hearing loss communicate and learn.
Provides a short overview of the five senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. Explores the special relationship between taste and smell. Shows how our senses combine to help us more richly experience the world around us. Includes suggested classroom activity.
Begins with rock concert footage interspersed with interviews with well-known
While hard at work on her chores, an ant hears wonderful music coming from the distance. Although she knows she should focus on the task at hand, she can't help but explore the joyful noise. Based on the children's book by Rebecca Emberley.
The ears are a masterpiece of miniature engineering, and our link to the world of sound. But their most important role is that they contain the tiny tubes that control our sense of balance. Presents the functions and parts of the ear in this look at the anatomy of hearing, speech, and balance. Graphics and microphotography vividly illustrate each part of the ear.
Dr. David Kimbro and Dr. Randall Hughes investigate a new idea: can crabs hear? They design an experiment to test their new theory and explore the effects it may have on the crabs. Part of the series "In The Grass, On The Reef."
The jaguar says llama wants to enter his house, but he doesn't want to let her in because she is sick. Apparently she has the swine flu, and he thinks she wants to infect him. Some audience members defend the jaguar and the llama. Llama explains that the house where the jaguar lives is her house and his uncleanliness has made her sick. After hearing the advices from the fleas, Kaka, and Ludovico, Jaguar promises to change his hygiene habits and apologizes to the llama for his behavior and promises to take care of her.
Speech, your means of communication, is the medium for exchanging ideas and expressing both pleasure and pain. Examines the physiology of speech by looking at humans' vocal tracts. Shows how the larynx, vocal chords, wind pipe, tongue, and lips produce the sounds of speech. Also, looks at the ability to understand speech by explaining why your ears and brain can discern the subtle nuances of rapid sounds.
Touch, taste, smell, hearing, and sight: the human body's five major senses. They are senses that have evolved independently over millions of years but are brought together by our marvelous central nervous system into the most refined way of interacting with the environment of any species on the planet. Join Dr. Mark Reisman as he provides you with a look at the anatomy and physiology of each of these sensory systems and shows how the brain uses them to produce what we call being human.
James Woodenlegs first learned to communicate using Plains Indians Sign Language from his family, growing up on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana. Also known as “hand talk,” the language has been used by both deaf and hearing Indians from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico for at least 200 years, possibly much longer. Woodenlegs is working with sign language scholars Jeffrey Davis and Melanie McKay-Cody to document and preserve hand talk, one of thousands of the world’s endangered languages.
Sight, touch, hearing, taste, and smell send sensory messages to the brain at a speed of 430km/hr. The brain deals with 11 million information signals per second, and this continual flow of information is sorted and analyzed by the brain, which directs the senses, organizes them, and improves them. The brain’s plasticity allows it to continually adapt. If and individual loses one sense, the brain reorganizes and compensates by increasing the power of the other senses. This episode highlights an artist who is blind and uses his fingers to feel the color of the paint before applying it to the canvas. Part of the “Human + The Future of Our Senses” series.
From the noise of an urban landscape to the musical cocoons created by high-tech devices, sound may be humanity's most lively and versatile interface with the world. Takes viewers on a sonic odyssey that assesses the frequently overlooked impact of what humans hear. Takes a CGI tour through the human ear and its vibration-decoding systems, defining the concept of sound. Also demonstrates the importance of sound in human spiritual and religious lives, while musical research at Edinburgh University highlights the link between sound patterns and human movement. Several experts, from physicists to sound engineers to audio artists, contribute to this exploration of humanity's sonic world.
The cochlear implant is widely considered to be the most successful neural prosthetic on the market. The implant, which helps individuals who are deaf perceive sound, translates auditory information into electrical signals that go directly to the brain, bypassing cells that don't serve this function as they should because they are damaged. Led by engineer Pamela Bhatti at the Georgia Institute of Technology, a team of researchers at both Georgia Tech and the Georgia Regents University created a new type of interface between the device and the brain that could dramatically improve the sound quality of the next generation of implants.
