DAILY WEAR VS EXTENDED WEAR HEARING AID TECHNOLOGY
On this week’s TIP, Adam Shulberg, Senior Audiologist and Managing Director at Cubex discusses the difference between daily wear and extended wear hearing aid technology.

THIS WEEK’S TIP: HEARING & COGNITION
This week Adam Shulberg talks about the relationship between hearing and cognition.
Cognition is a term referring to the brain processes involved in acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences and the senses.
We live in an organised world of sound where cognition, attention, memory and the sense of hearing interact. Each plays a crucial role in listening. The direct relationship between hearing and cognition affects how well we use our hearing to function in everyday life.
When we experience hearing loss and communication difficulties, participating in conversation requires use of more of our cognitive resources. Although it may appear that the communication problems experienced is due to hearing loss alone, often this is not the primary issue and there are underlying cognitive factors that need consideration.
