Cubex Weekly TIP – The Art of Listening

On 07, Dec 2017 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP: HEARING IS PASSIVE AND LISTENING IS DYNAMIC

 

From the moment we are born, listening is the first communication skill we engage in and this is how we learn and develop spoken language. It is our ability to select information with attention, intent and effort.

Listening also involves memory, knowledge, thinking, problem solving, intellectual capacity and application of learned and acquired knowledge to new situations. It allows us to focus on the sound information we find useful whilst filtering out noises in the environment or background.

Long-term untreated hearing loss can impact on cognitive ability. The longer you deprive your brain of sound the more time it may take you to redevelop the cognitive skill of listening.

Weekly Tip: We Hear with our Brain

On 30, Nov 2017 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP: WE HEAR WITH OUR BRAIN

 

When we think hearing, we immediately think ears.  However, the organ of hearing is a complex system that consists of 2 ears and a brain. 

We are constantly bombarded with many different sound sources and the partnership between the brain and the ears gives humans the remarkable ability to effortlessly deconstruct our complex and ever changing world of sound.

When one starts to develop reduced hearing the information that is received at the Brain is incomplete, somewhat muddled at times and confused…

Adam Shulberg
Senior Audiologist and Managing Director

Hearing loss disrupts this natural relationship and the brain receives information that is incomplete making it difficult to make sense of sound.
