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