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.

Is there a connection between diet and hearing loss?

On 04, Apr 2017 | In Food for Brains | By Jerusha Shulberg

We regularly share brain boosting recipes and yoga tips for revitalising a weary brain, but what is the connection between diet, exercise and hearing loss?

The old saying “you are what you eat” does have some merit, but do you also hear what you eat? According to some studies, there does appear to be a connection between the quality of your food and hearing loss. Exercise matters too, specifically in relation to cognitive ability and how the brain processes sound.

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 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!

Fourteen Musicians and Composers Experiencing Hearing Loss

On 25, Feb 2016 | In Musicians | By Rosie Williams

Music can be relaxing, exciting, emotional, peaceful and often, very loud! Excessive exposure to loud music or high-decibel sounds can lead to tinnitus, hearing loss and other hearing conditions. For musicians, this poses an occupational hazard if they are not careful and do not protect their hearing early on in their careers and before a potential hearing condition develops.

This list of musicians will prove that hearing loss or tinnitus doesn’t necessarily mean the end of musical creation, although the growing list of musicians going public about their condition does call for more attention toward protecting musicians hearing.
