Last week we hosted an evening of dinner and professional discussion at La Fromagerie.
It was wonderful to be part of a gathering of so many health professionals including, Otologists, Psychologists, Neurologists and General Practitioners. We sat together to explore and learn about the links between cognitive neuroscience, otology and audiology so that we can better serve the health and wellbeing of our patients.
Thank you Adam & Jerusha for organising such a most interesting and stimulating evening.
– Mr David Garfield Davies, Consultant ENT Surgeon
So many thanks to all of you at Cubex, for a splendid evening & great conversation. Clearly, you had put such a lot of thought and time into preparing the most interesting talks and forward-thinking discussions. A feast for the mind and the body!

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany, have discovered that changes in brain waves compound hearing problems in older adults. The researchers have found that the hearing difficulties older people experience are due to more than hearing loss–the difficulties are also due, most likely, to changes in the brain’s alpha waves, whose adaption to altered hearing situations improves speech comprehension.

Music has a remarkable ability to affect and manipulate how we feel. Simply listening to songs we like stimulates the brain’s reward system, creating feelings of pleasure and comfort. But music goes beyond our hearts to our minds, shaping how we think. Scientific evidence suggests that even a little music training when we’re young can shape how brains develop, improving the ability to differentiate sounds and speech.

Frank Lin’s ongoing research at John Hopkins University has shed light on how hearing loss, cognitive functioning, and ageing relate to each other.
Lin shared his public health perspective on hearing loss and ageing at our recent series on Vision 2020: Creating a Future for Hearing Health Care.
In his presentation, Lin explains how hearing loss can contribute to increased cognitive load on the brain, changed brain structure, and social isolation in older adults. Combined, these three health pathways can lead to decreased cognitive and physical functioning in older adults.
