Goals and Objectives

- This newsgroup is designed for information exchange and discussion 
pertaining to all aspects of audiology and hearing science.  Members 
can include anyone working in (or interested in) clinical, research, or 
academic aspects of audition.

Discussion of Topics including :

1.  Diagnostic Audiology :
    - Pure Tone Audiometry
    - Speech Audiometry
    - Central Testing
    - Immittance
    - Electrophysiology
    - Otoacoustic Emissions

2. Rehabilitative Measures :
    - All aspects of hearing aids including dispensing and design
	(see Note: in Forthcoming Technologies)
    - Aural rehabilitative measures and technologies

3. Biological and Psychophysical Aspects of Audition :
    - anatomy and physiology of the auditory system
    - psychoacoustics

Announcements: (can include)

1. Upcoming meetings, seminars, and conferences pertaining to 
audiology and/or hearing science

2. Forthcoming Technologies

(Note : Due to the commercial limitations of BIONET, individuals 
associated with the manufacturing of hearing aids and/or their 
components cannot use this newsgroup to advertise products.  
Individuals can answer direct questions pertaining to their products.)

3. Positions : Brief announcements of open positions including clinical, 
research, and teaching positions.  These announcements should be 
kept as brief as possible with interested candidates requesting further 
information via personal email response to hiring party.

Depending on newsgroup activity, future creation of subgroups of 
bionet.audiology will be addressed.  For example, subgroups focusing 
on electrophysiology or hearing aids will be addressed and discussed 
at that time depending on volume of activity.

Although the intent of this newsgroup is for persons working in the field 
of audition to discuss research and clinical topics, there may be 
individuals posting to the newsgroup that seek medical advice.  
Respondents to such postings will be encouraged to reply via private 
email and should assume all responsibilities for future actions.
