Olfactory, gustatory, visual, and acoustic disorders are characterized by impairments not only in peripheral stimuli detection (i.e., sensorial level), but also in central processing (i.e., perceptual level). Visual and acoustic impairments affect millions of people around the world, and may have profound impact on quality of life, social communication, psychosocial wellbeing, and economic independence. Visual and acoustic deficits may lead to social isolation, embarrassment, loneliness, and depression.

Abstract

Olfactory, gustatory, visual, and acoustic disorders are characterized by impairments not only in peripheral stimuli detection (i.e., sensorial level), but also in central processing (i.e., perceptual level). Visual and acoustic impairments affect millions of people around the world, and may have profound impact on quality of life, social communication, psychosocial wellbeing, and economic independence. Visual and acoustic deficits may lead to social isolation, embarrassment, loneliness, and depression.
