There is much to be learned about the human ear and sense of hearing. The research that is done to understand the diseases of the human ear and the causes of hearing loss and deafness are limited by the inability to surgically investigate the structures of ear without further damaging the organs of hearing and balance. Therefore, temporal bone donation offers a unique opportunity to help further the research on hearing loss and deafness. I encourage you to learn more about this by visiting NIDCD National Temporal Bone, Hearing and Balance Pathology Resource Registry
