Study: Hearing gets more tiring for the brain as we age

On 28, Oct 2016 | In Hear&Now, News, Professional News | By Rosie Williams

With support from Sonova, a recent and globally unique study by the University of Zurich has been looking at the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain. The study has allowed neuropsychologists to visually map and measure the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain.

The results show that although the ageing brain requires intensive training in order to regain a better understanding of speech when using hearing instruments, an ageing brain can still relearn how to process speech. This supports the belief that hearing does not just take place in the ear, but also as a cognitive process in the brain.

Video: hearing aids help to keep your brain fit

On 29, Jun 2016 | In Hear&Now, News, Product, Professional News | By Jerusha Shulberg

The Eriksholm Research Centre have shared this short but interesting video featuring Professor Hélène Amieva, a leading researcher in the Neuropsychology and Epidemiology of Aging at the University of Bordeaux, France, who discusses her 25 year study that shows that hearing aids reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults. It is well documented that untreated hearing conditions can lead to an increase in anxiety, stress, depression, poorer communication and eventual isolation. Hearing aids used as part of a individualised treatment plan can help to manage the negative effects of hearing loss and reduce accelerated cognitive decline!

Oticon Opn Hearing Aids Delivers an Open Sound Experience for Wearers

On 20, May 2016 | In Hear&Now, News, Product, Professional News | By Jerusha Shulberg

With Oticon’s launch of Oticon Opn™, hearing aid treatment technology has taken a giant leap forward in favour of the end‐user.

Traditionally hearing aid technologies close down environmental sounds using tunnel directionality. Speech coming from the front is clear, while the rest of the sound environment is suppressed, limiting the brain of the context needed to make sense of sound.

With new, ground breaking technology from Oticon, the Oticon Opn™ quickly and precisely analyses the soundscape and differentiates between environmental and foreground sounds. Even in complex listening environments, Otion Opn™ can open up and balance individual sounds allowing environmental noise to be accessible but not disruptive, empowering the brain to choose which sound to focus on. Directionality as we know it, has become a thing of the past.
