One of the most common complaints among aging individuals is difficulty in understanding speech in a compromised listening environment, such as when background noise is present. Age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) is associated with both peripheral and central neural processing deficits, as it occurs even in those with only a mild peripheral hearing impairment. The current study was designed to investigate potential causative mechanisms of this impairment by using a rat model in which… CONTINUE READING
