OBJECTIVES Research has increasingly suggested a consistent relationship between peripheral hearing and selected measures of cognition in older adults. However, other studies yield conflicting findings. The primary purpose of the present study was to further elucidate the relationship between peripheral hearing and three domains of cognition and one measure(More)
The present study examined the effects of normal aging and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) on visual word recognition. Madden et al. (1999) reported evidence of general slowing of cognitive processes in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients relative to younger adults and healthy older adults using a lexical decision task. It was of interest to determine whether(More)
OBJECTIVE Hearing loss has been well-documented as a risk factor for cognitive impairment, but the simple presence of hearing loss is not a sufficient predictor of cognitive decline. Although auditory behavioral research has not revealed an effective indicator of early cognitive impairment, a limited number of studies using cortical auditory evoked(More)
This review provides a description of age-related changes in hearing and cognition, the relationship between hearing and cognition, and several potential mechanisms that underlie the relationship. Several studies have shown a significant relationship between peripheral hearing loss and cognitive impairment/decline but other studies have not. Furthermore,(More)
We conducted a neuropsychological and cognitive assessment study to determine whether time of day affects cognitive performance. We measured executive control (fluency), processing speed, semantic memory, and episodic memory performance. We followed 56 students across 3 different times of day, testing performance on vocabulary, fluency, processing speed,(More)
INTRODUCTION Monitoring for various health conditions (e.g., breast cancer, hypertension) has become common practice. However, there is still no established tool for regular monitoring of cognition. In this pilot longitudinal study, we examined the utility and feasibility of internet-based cognitive self-monitoring using data from the first 12 months of(More)
