The NIDCD National Temporal Bone, Hearing and Balance Pathology Resource Registry is a non-profit research organization that serves as a national resource for researchers and the public to promote research into human temporal bone and balance disorders. The registry continues and expands upon the activities of the former National Temporal Bone Banks Program established by the Deafness Research Foundation in 1960. Individuals with ear disorders such as hearing loss or balance problems may make an anatomical gift of their temporal bones and associated brain structures. These donations are vital for the advancement of knowledge and understanding of hearing and balance disorders.
