Hearing loss was associated with an increased risk of depression in older adults. Those of lower socioeconomic status were twice as likely to report symptoms of depression. However, using hearing aids helped alleviate symptoms of depression.
EEG and AI technology can directly decode the direction in which people are listening from brainwaves alone, without having to link them to direct sounds.
Researchers propose an alternative mechanism to explain the link between hearing loss and dementia. The study sheds light on the role of the medial temporal lobe in auditory cognition.
The brain activity response to sound in older children with hearing loss was lower than their peers with normal hearing.
Wearing a hearing aid for age-related hearing loss may help to protect the brain against dementia, a new study finds. Researchers report those who wore hearing aids maintained better brain function over time than those who did not.
A new study reports it takes longer for deaf infants to become familiar with new objects. Researchers say the study highlights a difference in how infants process information, even when the information is not auditory in nature.
Researchers report signs of memory problems in old age may be a result of hearing loss and not a neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers report age related hearing loss can increase the risk of older adults experiencing symptoms of depression. The study reports those with mild hearing loss were twice as likely to be depressed, and those with severe hearing loss were up to four times more likely to suffer depression than those with normal hearing.
