A Deeper Dive into Cognition & Audiology: 2022

Approximately 55 million people (globally) have acquired dementia and that number is expected to triple in the next 28 years (by 2050).

In this article, we’ll examine some lesser-known factors and recent peer reviewed findings which may impact our understanding of the relationship between cognition and audition.

COVID-19 and Tinnitus: An Initiative to Improve Tinnitus Care

COVID-19 and Tinnitus: An Initiative to Improve Tinnitus Care

Tinnitus is the perception of sounds without an external stimulus (Baguley, McFerran, and Hall 2013). Its prevalence is estimated to be between 10% and 15% and it is more commonly experienced by males and the older population (Baguley, McFerran, and Hall 2013; Lockwood, Salvi, and Burkard 2002). Tinnitus is heterogeneous, with numerous aetiologies, but it is often accompanied by hearing loss (Tonkin 2002) and can be exacerbated by emotional distress and vice versa; chronic stress, anxiety, and depression are frequently reported among tinnitus patients (Mazurek, Boecking, and Brueggemann 2019; Salazar et al. 2019).
