Hearing aids stimulate brain activity

A hearing aid does more than help you hear. It also helps your brain remember the sounds you cannot hear without your hearing aid.

On average, it takes 10 years for people with hearing loss to finally do something about it. Many people are simply waiting for the hearing problem to go away. This rarely happens.

Untreated hearing loss affects your quality of life, but it also affects the brain’s ability to remember common everyday sounds because the hearing channels are no longer effectively used.

When the hearing nerves lose their function and no longer channel sound signals to the brain, the brain ‘forgets’ the sounds over time and becomes unable to understand them.


The brain centre for hearing stores sounds and noises for up to three years following the onset of a hearing loss. But after about seven years the memory becomes weaker and weaker.

Therefore, it is important to have your hearing tested and hearing aids fitted when you find that you are losing some of your hearing. Once you have a hearing aid the hearing processing resumes supplying signals to the brain.


If the fitting of a hearing aid is seriously delayed, however, not even a hearing aid will be able to transform the incoming sound signals into understandable information. This means that the brain no longer recognizes ordinary everyday sounds and noises, such as the hum of the refrigerator or the computer. The brain must learn to hear all over again.

Hearing aids slow dementia by ‘75%’, new study finds

According to a new study from UK,  wearing hearing aids slow dementia by up to 75%.

Hearing aids placed on ears

Scientists believe that keeping older adults engaged and active by adopting these devices can significantly reduce age-related cognitive decline.

They followed the progress of 2,040 individuals between 1996 and 2014, asking them to complete word memory tests at various stages and monitoring the rate of decline before and after getting a hearing aid.

The research team found that while the aids did not halt or reverse cognitive decline, they slowed it down by three-quarters.

The team at the University of Manchester said the strength of the association between hearing aids and mental deterioration meant policy makers should consider hearing and sight loss screening for all older adults.

Dr Piers Dawes said: “These studies underline just how important it is to overcome the barriers which deny people from accessing hearing and visual aids.

“It’s not really certain why hearing problems have an impact on cognitive decline, but I’d guess that isolation, stigma and the resultant lack of physical activity that are linked to hearing problems might have something to do with it.

“And there are barriers to overcome – people might not want to wear hearing aids because of stigma attached to wearing them, or they feel the amplification is not good enough or they’re not comfortable.”

The new research was published in PLOS ONE and the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

Hearing Aids vs. Cochlea Implants

Hearing devices differs from hearing implants in the way they work.

Hearing aids receive and amplify sounds to a volume which allow the wearer to hear.

Hearing implant and sound processor

Hearing implants require surgery and are inserted under the skin behind the ear, with additional audio processors worn outside. This processor picks up sounds from the environment and convert them into digital information for the implant. Implant then sends electrical signals to the inner ear (cochlea), stimulating the nerve fibers which in turn send information to the brain.

In general,

  1. Hearing aids are recommended for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss, or when the patient has conductive hearing loss- where sounds cannot be transmitted through the ear canal effectively.
  2. Implants are recommended for those with severe to profound loss, or when hearing aids are no longer sufficient for the patient.

There are an estimated of 300 to 400 hearing implant users in Singapore, hearing aids users in the tens of thousands.
