Do Hearing Aids Prevent Cognitive Decline?
Phonak CEU courses
Presented by Brandy Heckroodt, AuD, Paul J. Kreimer, MA, CCC-A, Cheri Hebeisen, AuD, CCC-A
Recorded Webinar
Course: #33181Level: Introductory1 Hour
Research has shown that there are known associations between hearing loss and cognitive abilities. Cognitive decline has been seen to be accelerated in people with hearing loss. Several hypotheses exist regarding the underlying mechanisms driving the described associations. Science is currently trying to find the most likely explanation. One of the more researched hypotheses is that impoverished auditory input leads to decreased cognition - So can hearing aids delay the issue? The session will give an overview of the current state of knowledge.
