The July/August issue of ASHA Access Audiology focuses on the complex relationship between cognitive impairment and hearing loss.
Jennifer Jones Lister, professor, chair and interim audiology program director in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of South Florida, examines how auditory measures have the potential to serve as efficient, non-invasive, cost-effective indicators of future cognitive decline and current cognitive impairment.
A number of auditory measures—including pure-tone thresholds, auditory processing measures and event-related potentials—have been shown to be predictive of cognitive impairment and decline. Lister shows that the strongest predictor appears to be an auditory processing measure of degraded speech in noise.
Access Audiology is a bimonthly e-newsletter that addresses the needs of professionals and students interested in hearing, balance and the field of audiology.
