Project ID: 1062

DescriptionHaving run a study investigating how older people understand speech in noisy places (like cafes and restaurants), we are looking to publish these results. Following up on this work we are now running another study looking at brain responses, using an MEG scan. One of our objectives is to provide the groundwork for the development of clinical tests to improve diagnosis and treatment of specific hearing problems. Recent evidence also suggests these may be correlated with earlier onset of dementia, and we believe that this makes this kind of research even more relevant.
