Evaluation of the effect of hearing aids using electroencephalographic analysis

Rosa, Isabel Marques. "Evaluation of the effect of hearing aids using electroencephalographic analysis." Enterprise and Work Innovation Studies 9 (2013): 29-38.


We wonder how it is possible to use the Electroencephalogram (EEG) as a TA instrument, rather than a diagnosis procedure, to evaluate how children hear the sounds. The first concern was related to the definition of concepts, namely the primary and secondary objectives, the importance of the study, the materials and equipment, the procedures, the criteria for inclusion and exclusion and the expected outcomes. We present the main research questions, the proposed methodology and report the first steps of the practical work, some results and a few considerations about the thesis next development.


based on the report for the Doctoral Conference of the PhD programme in Technology Assessment, held at FCT-UNL Campus, Monte de Caparica, July 2013. The PhD thesis has the supervision of Dr. Salomé Almeida (Central Hospital of Lisbon), and co-supervision of Prof. Manuel Ortigueira (FCT-UNL).
