The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of age-related cognitive changes on hearing aid benefit based on hearing aid compression time constants. The hypothesis is that people with poor working memory skills will benefit from slow time constants in hearing aid compression while those with good working memory skills will be able to benefit from more sophisticated compression algorithms with rapid time constants.
This study is an investigation of the effect of a computer-based working memory training program on memory and language processing in at-risk children (e.g., those with working memory weaknesses) who have received cochlear implants.
This study aims to determine the effectiveness of computer games to improve language and literacy outcomes for children who have hearing loss. Children will be assigned to one of four conditions: phonological awareness training, working memory training, phonological awareness + working memory training, or active control.
Many older subjects experience difficulty in understanding speech in noisy environments. Part of this problem is related to changes that occur in the ear with age and compromise the hearing of high-pitched sounds. Another part of the problem with speech understanding relates to changes with age in the neural circuits of the brain that process different speech sounds. Evidence suggests that these changes in neural circuits are particularly large if hearing loss is present. Th...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefit of bilateral implantation with bone-anchored hearing systems (BAHS), in terms of sound localization abilities, as well as auditory working memory. The hypothesis is that the use of two BAHS (bilateral condition) will not only improve localization abilities, but it will also increase the ability to retain words in working memory, compared to performance with only one BAHS (unilateral condition).
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether working memory training improves behavioral symptoms, neurocognitive performance, and neural functioning in young children with ADHD.
Osteogenesis Imperfecta-related hearing loss usually occurs in individuals with mild (type I) OI and is much earlier in onset than age-related hearing loss, with the majority of individuals experiencing some minor hearing loss in their 20s. Bisphosphonates have been successfully used to treat otosclerosis, a common cause of hearing loss similar to OI-related hearing loss. As many individuals with OI-related hearing loss also present with otosclerosis and because of their mechan...
The purpose of this study is to see if a newly developed program called "I Manage my hearing loss" (iManage) will increase the number of individuals who visit an audiologist after failing a hearing screening. The iManage program will educate individuals about hearing loss, demonstrate that hearing problems are important, demonstrate that support from family and friends is important and help participants identify the benefits and concerns related to seeking help for hearing loss...
In France, Alzheimer's disease accounts for 70 to 80% of the causes of neurocognitive disorders, i.e. 600,000 to 800,000 patients. It is a neurodegenerative pathology that causes evolutionary cognitive dysfunction, mainly affecting memory functions. The inability to name familiar objects (lack of the word) is one of the most commonly noted symptoms at an early stage of the disease. Presbyacusis, or age-related hearing loss, is the most common sensory deficit in the elderly ...
This study evaluates whether a 2 hour group session, "The Living Well with Hearing Loss Workshop," can successfully teach hard of hearing people how to best use hearing aids and a variety of personal skills to compensate for the limitations of their impaired ears.
The proposed study is to test and validate a novel intervention that integrates computerized cognitive training with real-time neuromonitoring and neurofeedback to enhance working memory by probing the individualized neural systems underlying working memory. We will test the proposed intervention on children with ADHD with working memory deficits. The R61 proof-of-concept phase will assess the target engagement, effective dose and feasibility.
PTSD is characterized by recurrent intrusion of trauma-related memories and images that cause significant distress and impairment to the affected individuals. The current project aims to examine whether computerized emotional working memory training (eWMT) can help improve working memory capabilities and reduce trauma-related emotional symptoms among individuals with elevated trauma-related symptoms. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of the two computerized training...
This study will assess whether weight loss induced through diet and physical activity can change neural responses to high- and low-calorie food images. In addition, it will evaluate whether weight loss can improve neural function when performing the N-back task, a measure of working memory. Findings will address notable gaps in the literature by testing whether a scalable weight loss intervention can help protect and improve neurocognitive functioning and brain health in indivi...
Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in veterans. The decreased ability to communicate is troubling in itself, but the strong association of hearing loss with functional decline and depression adds further to the burden on the hearing-impaired. Although hearing amplification improves quality of life, hearing evaluations are offered infrequently to older patients. Only 25 percent of patients with aidable hearing loss receive treatment. Up to 30 percent of ...
Hearing loss is an established independent risk factor for dementia. Likewise, recent research demonstrated cognitive deficits in subjects with vestibular loss. However, in these studies data have not been adjusted for the hearing status of the enrolled study subjects. As hearing loss prevalence is high in patients with vestibular loss, this could be a major confounder. Therefore, in this study the investigators investigate cognition in patients with bilateral vestibulopathy wi...
An EEG study using continuous speech stimuli to assess neural language processing in a hearing impaired population. Participants listen to short radio excerpts in different Signal to Noise Ratios (SNR) and answer comprehension questions as well as listening effort questions. We assess the effect of different algorithms on neural language processing as well as subjective listening effort. Each participant hears 12 randomized segments of speech (about 4min long each) with differe...
The goal of the proposed project is to create an Audiobooks for Hearing Loss (HL) App - an audiobook App that has a wide array of user-selectable features designed to provide auditory training.
There are currently no cognitive tests that have been validated as screening tools for people with dementia and comorbid hearing loss. This is particularly important given the high prevalence of hearing impairment in older adults presenting to memory services and the risk of misdiagnosis of dementia in this population as outlined above. Cognitive tests validated in hearing impaired populations will also be important as outcome tools for interventional research aiming to find o...
Individuals with chronic insomnia have persistent difficulty falling and staying asleep, as well as complaints of altered daytime functioning that may be associated with cognitive impairments. The neural processes underlying these daytime complaints may involve abnormal activation of brain regions and neural networks involved in working memory, memory encoding and emotions. The goal of this study is to assess whether a psychological treatment for insomnia will reverse these abn...
Previous studies indicated that children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often suffer from deficits in executive function, such as attentional control, inhibition, and working memory. One of these executive functions, working memory, plays a critical role in academic performance and classroom behavior. Working memory is essential for performing complex cognitive tasks such as comprehension, learning, and reasoning. Several studies have shown that training o...
According to the working memory model, which accounts for the organisation of working memory, the processing of non-meaningful gestures is not clear. Some authors suggest that working memory for non-meaningful gestures has the same characteristics as the phonological loop, made up of a phonological store and of a revival process (articulatory rehearsal). These characteristics are evidenced in memory span tasks, memory span which is itself determined by the duration of the memor...
The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness and safety of the study drug, AM-111. AM-111 is tested for the treatment of sudden sensorineural hearing loss where the cause is unknown.
Aim: To verify how much of the orientation provided at diagnosis and hearing aid fitting are retained by new hearing aid users and analyze whether age, degree of hearing loss, academic and socio-economics status have an influence on this
The purpose of study is to determine the diagnostic value of Hearing test program on smart phone for detected patients who has hearing loss.
As part of the proposed work, the investigators would like to examine whether there is a need to use a training video to train IDF combat soldiers to improve the use of ear plugs and to prevent hearing loss from exposure to noise, and to characterize the hearing impaired epidemiology of recruits and the basic rate of hearing loss During basic training.
