Auditory Perception in Individuals with Friedreich's Ataxia

Introduction: Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is an inherited ataxia with a range of progressive features including axonal degeneration of sensory nerves. The aim of this study was to investigate auditory perception in affected individuals. Methods: Fourteen subjects with genetically defined FRDA participated. Two control groups, one consisting of healthy, normally hearing individuals and another comprised of subjects with sensorineural hearing loss, were also assessed. Auditory processing was evaluated using structured tasks designed to reveal the listeners’ ability to perceive temporal and spectral cues. Findings were then correlated with open-set speech understanding.
