How Cognitive Function is vital to the field of Audiology

On 29, Aug 2017 | In News | By Cubex Concierge

We are excited to share our recent interview with The Marylebone Journal. Deputy Editor, Viel Richardson caught up with Cubex Audiologist, Jerusha Shulberg to talk about cognitive function and the reasons why it is vital to understand its role in audiology especially when treating hearing loss.

As there is currently no way to completely restore a persons hearing when they experience a sensory neural hearing loss, hearing technology is used as a means to deliver sound to the brain, but sometimes, patients may still find it difficult to navigate their auditory world and to communicate with ease. This is where understanding the cognitive component becomes crucial.

As Cubex Audiologists, we are mindful that in order for us to be able help individuals make positive lifestyle changes we need to build a cognitive reserve, improve hearing and strengthen the ability to communicate.

It is vital to understand not simply what you are hearing, but also how well you process the complex information our brain receives from our surroundings and so we have developed a relaxed and innovative way to truly understand a persons hearing ability and unique cognitive skill sets. This approach allows us to provide our patients with a real awareness of their current state of living and enables us to provide the best possible support and the greatest improvement in their communication skills.

Nine lifestyle changes that can reduce dementia risk, including treating your hearing loss.

On 27, Jul 2017 | In Arts & Lifestyle | By Jerusha Shulberg

According to an international study in the Lancet, one in three cases of dementia could be prevented if more people looked after their brain health throughout life.

 
It is currently estimated that 47 million people are living with Dementia at the moment. By 2050, This number could reach 131 million people globally.

The study explores the lifestyle factors that play a major role in reducing the risk of dementia and examines the benefits of building a “cognitive reserve”, which means strengthening the brain’s networks so it can continue to function in later life despite damage.

‘Smart’ hearing aid technology – a thing of the future?

On 07, Dec 2016 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

Apple’s latest change to remove the headphone jack and replace the traditional plug-in ear phones with wireless AirPods has sparked some considerable conversation. AirPods could change the way we use headphones with its instant ability to connect to your iPhone as soon as it is turned on, to adjusting the volume of playback music, changing a song, getting directions by activating Siri or making a call wirelessly. We have been using this type of advanced wireless technology to make life easier for people with hearing loss for some time! Could forward-thinking companies like Apple be making connected hearing devices the ‘thing’ to wear?

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

On 28, Oct 2016 | In 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 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!

Hearing is a Brain Process

Hearing is a sense, however, understanding what we hear is a brain process. Your ears deliver sound to your brain where meaning is applied through use of cognitive functions like, listening, understanding and memory.

Like our vision, our hearing is constantly changing. However, unlike eye sight, hearing is an easy thing to take for granted and for many, the impact of hearing loss on the brain is often overlooked. If you have a hearing loss, access to your world of sound is compromised and there is less stimulation of the brain. Making sense of speech based communication is difficult and requires more mental effort or ‘brain power’ which often leads to withdrawal from social interaction and an increased risk of mental decline.
