MARANGONI, Andréa Tortosa  e  GIL, Daniela. Behavioral assessment of auditory processing before and after formal auditory training in traumatic brain injury patientsBehavioral assessment of auditory processing before and after formal auditory training in traumatic brain injury patients. Audiol., Commun. Res. [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.1, pp.33-39. ISSN 2317-6431.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S2317-64312014000100007.

Purpose

: To investigate the effects of formal auditory training on individuals with traumatic brain injury using behavioral tests.

Methods

: Nine normal hearing individuals who had severe traumatic brain injury underwent behavioral evaluation of auditory processing pre and post formal auditory training. Eight sessions took place in an attempt to train the auditory skills of temporal ordering, auditory closure and figure-ground.

Results

: All individuals improved in all tests after the training, improving the auditory skills of temporal ordering and figure-ground of verbal sounds. In terms of the altered gnosis processes, a significant improvement was found for encoding (gradual loss of memory and sensory integration) and organization.

Conclusion

: After formal auditory training, individuals with severe traumatic brain injury exhibited adequacy in the auditory skills of figure-ground, temporal ordering and resolution.
