Listening to music, watching Netflix, or simply eating at a noisy food court subject us to noise. Over time, extended exposure to noise may contribute to the gradual degeneration of hearing.

Topics covered in the talk:
- Understanding the Dynamics of the Ear and Hearing
- Preventing Hearing Loss: Effects of Noise on Hearing
