Mysteries of the Hearing Brain — What Can Rate Code Tell Us About Cochlear-Implant and Older Listeners?
Samira Anderson looks at how impaired rate discrimination may affect an older person’s ability to understand speech in a cocktail party scenario.
With age-related hearing loss being among the most chronic health conditions for older adults, Sara Mamo presents an excellent article on Alternative Models of Hearing Care for Older Adults
Kelly Tremblay gives us an interesting look at her time sitting at a table in Geneva last year to help craft the World Health Organization’s Guidelines on Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE).
Emma Scholey brings us up to speed on a new study investigating how musical emotion is perceived in older adults with hearing loss which is underway at the SMART laboratory (Science of Music, Auditory Research and Technology), Ryerson University.
Although hearing aid technology has improved dramatically, some problems persist and hard to predict leading to poor hearing aid acceptance. Samira Anderson’s hypothesis is that the lack of hearing aid acceptance may be due in part to age- and hearing-related changes in the central processing of sound in the auditory nerve, brainstem, or cortex that affect the neural representation of the speech signal.
