Who wears his hearing AIDS, doing something for the brain

People that wear due to age-related hearing loss, a hearing aid that cuts over a longer period of time at memory and attention tests better than those who put the hearing aid in the drawer. The new study results, which were presented at an international conference of the Alzheimer’s society in Los Angeles show.

After two years of hearing people cut hard for over 50 years, the hearing AIDS helped, in Tests for the assessment of working memory, and attention better than those that did not. The hearing aid users showed faster reaction times, which can be understood as a mirror image for the concentration, when it comes to look at an object carefully, or speaking closely with someone.

Dr. Anne Corbett of the University of Exeter who led the study, said: "Our study is one of the largest that examines the impact of hearing AIDS on brain functions. The results suggest that Wearing a hearing aid could protect the brain in fact." Her colleague, Professor Clive Ballard added: "We know that we could reduce the risk of Dementia by one-third if everyone would take in mid-life appropriate action. Hearing AIDS not only improve hearing but also help to keep the brain fit."

Earlier research had shown that a hearing loss with decreasing brain function, poorer memory and increased risk for dementia depends on. The current PROTECT-study of 25,000 people aged 50 years and above and was conducted by the University of Exeter and King’s College London.
