Faculty mentor: Brennan Payne

Cognitive decline is a normal part of aging, but there is so much unknown about it. There is a growing literature that age-related hearing loss is predictive of decreased cognitive functioning in older adulthood. This study examines how hearing loss could be used to predict cognitive decline in older adulthood. The results showed that, surprisingly, older adults with worse hearing have better verbal working memory and younger adults with worse hearing have worse verbal working memory.
