The link between untreated hearing loss, cognitive decline & dementia

On 29, Oct 2018 | In Hear&Now | By Rosie Williams

Readers may remember an international study in the Lancet, reporting that one in three cases of dementia can be prevented if more people looked after their cognitive health throughout their lives.

In the study, middle-aged hearing loss was identified as a major risk to developing dementia. Hearing loss denies people access to cognitively rich environments and can lead to social isolation and depression, leading to a higher risk of cognitive decline.

The study identified that 35% of the risk factors associated with dementia were modifiable, the most prominent being hearing loss which was responsible for 9% of the acceleration of the onset of dementia.

On 25, Sep 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We were really pleased to see this article in the Guardian discussing cognitive therapy and mindfulness as effective tools for the management of tinnitus.

The article discusses the use of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy as a tool for people experiencing tinnitus, helping them to learn how to accept and live well with tinnitus, rather than fighting and pushing it away.

The Psychology of Tinnitus

On 21, Aug 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We talk about tinnitus a lot and that is because tinnitus is one of the most prevalent symptoms that humanity faces and it often causes increased levels of unhealthy psychological distress in those who experience it.

It sounds daunting to people to hear that tinnitus does not have a cure, but there are ways to manage and live well with tinnitus, without any suffering or stress.  At Cubex, and with the guidance of the British Tinnitus Association, we utilise mindfulness and meditation practices to learn to live with tinnitus in a positive and calm way.

Cubex Weekly TIP – Hearing & Cognition

On 01, Mar 2018 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

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.

Improving your mental health in 2018

On 26, Jan 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We wanted to share an article written by The Telegraph about the current state of mental health and ways you can look to improve your mental health. One in 10 teenage girls are being referred to NHS specialist mental health services and one in three GP sick notes are for mental health reasons, but we are now in a time of great change for mental health.

There is a much greater awareness of mental health and whilst the health industry is much better equipped to help those suffering, the article discusses putting some of the onus back onto self-care regimes.

Dizziness and Inner Ear Disorders – Invitation to participate in a Vestibular research study.

On 09, Oct 2017 | In News | By Jerusha Shulberg

What happens to our mental capabilities and our composure when we become dizzy or disorientated?

Cubex Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, Mr Jeremy Corcoran is currently involved in a study that explores if and how some of our mental capabilities (particularly our spatial reasoning abilities) and our composure (the balance of our autonomic nervous system) are affected by dizziness caused by mismatching visual and vestibular signals. Mr Corcoran has already completed two large studies which have looked into this. For scientific robustness, he is completing another study in this area to see if he can replicate his previous results once again.

If you are interested, and have not previously suffered with dizziness, we would like to invite you to take part in the study. We will measure your problem-solving capabilities and your fight-or-flight response while you are spun around in a motorised chair built by the Royal Air Force.

Before you decide, we would like you to understand why the research is being done and what it would involve for you. The study has been fully approved by the University of Westminster. Please take your time to read the following information carefully and discuss it with friends, family and your GP if you wish. We would be happy to go through the information sheet with you and answer any questions you have. Ask us if there is anything that is not clear.
