The auditory brain and age-related hearing impairment / Jos J. Eggermont.

By: Eggermont, Jos J [author.]
Material type: TextTextPublisher: London, United Kingdom ; San Diego, CA : Elsevier/Academic Press, 2019Description: xvi, 279 pages : illustrations ; 24 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9780128153048Subject(s): Presbycusis | Hearing disorders | Brain -- Aging | Presbycusis | Cognition | Correction of Hearing Impairment | Aged | Brain -- Aging | Hearing disorders | PresbycusisAdditional physical formats: ebook version :: No titleDDC classification: 617.8 EGG
Contents:
Hearing and the Auditory Brain in the Elderly -- Age-Related Changes in Auditory Sensation -- Age-Related Changes in Auditory Perception -- Aging, Cognition, and Dementia -- Temporal Processing Deficits in Aging and the Role of Cognition -- Genetic and Environmental Factors in Age-Related Hearing Impairment -- Animal Models of Auditory Aging -- Changes in the Brain Connectome with Age -- Age-Related Electrophysiological Changes in the Auditory Brain -- Improving Quality of Life with Hearing Aids and Cochlear Implants.
Summary: The Auditory Brain and Age-Related Hearing Impairment provides an overview of the interaction between age-related hearing impairments and cognitive brain function. This monograph elucidates the techniques used in the connectome and other brain-network studies based on electrophysiological methods. Discussions of the manifestations of age-related hearing impairment, the causes of degradation of sound processing, compensatory changes in the human brain, and rehabilitation and intervention are included. There is currently a surge in content on aging and hearing loss, the benefits of hearing aids and implants, and the correlation between hearing loss, cognitive decline and early onset of dementia. Given the changing demographics, treatment of age-related hearing impairment need not just be bottom-up (i.e., by amplification and/or cochlear implantation), but also top-down by addressing the impact of the changing brain on communication. The role of age-related capacity for audio-visual integration and its role in assisting treatment have only recently been investigated, thus this area needs more attention.-- Source other than the Library of Congress.
