How does hearing loss affect cognitive decline?

Hearing loss can have a significant impact on several key brain functions, including memory, hearing, speech and language understanding, and reaction time.
Managing that loss can lead to improved communication, less difficulty processing information, less fatigue at the end of the day and an overall better quality of life.

What's the Ear-to-Brain Connection?

Did you know that a healthy brain is critical to processing the sounds we hear every day?

Learning more about your cognitive performance may help you and your audiologist better understand your hearing and communication deficits.

The ear-to-brain connection

Hearing loss challenges the brain’s ability to process sound efficiently and reduces resources available for other mental tasks.

Reduced brain capacity and structural changes due to less sound stimulation may contribute to cognitive decline.

Taking control

The good news is that research identifies hearing loss as the most modifiable risk factor for cognitive decline. Meaning, when you address your hearing loss, you have the opportunity to protect your brain health.

Cognivue Thrive is not a diagnostic tool and does not screen for Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Rather, it is an ideal tool for your audiologist to evaluate your cognitive performance as it relates to your hearing loss.
