The link between hearing loss and cognitive decline

In Canada, 38% of adults between the age of 20 and 79 years old suffer from hearing loss, and many never receive treatment. Furthermore, scientists have found that hearing loss often precedes diagnoses of age-related dementia by 5 to 10 years. Flavie Detcheverry, master’s student in biomedical engineering at the Université de Montréal, summarizes what we know about the relationship between hearing loss, cognitive decline, and age-related dementia.
