8. The effect of simultaneously and sequentially delivered cognitive and aerobic training on mobility among older adults with hearing loss. (PubMed)

The effect of simultaneously and sequentially delivered cognitive and aerobic training on mobility among older adults with hearing loss. Older adults exhibit declines in auditory and motor functioning, which are compensated for through the recruitment of cognitive resources. Cognitive or physical training alone has been shown to improve cognitive functioning and transfer to motor tasks, but results are mixed when these are combined in studies of healthy older adults, and few studies have (...) included those with age-related hearing loss (ARHL), who are at a higher risk of falls.To examine format effects in mixed training, we used a repeated measures intervention design to compare the efficacy of Simultaneous and Sequential multimodal training formats.42 older adults (Mage = 68.05, SDage = 4.65, females = 26) with (ARHL) and without hearing loss (OAH) completed an intervention study consisting of 12 sessions of multimodal training (computerized cognitive dual-task and recumbent aerobic

11. The Apolipoprotein Allele and Sensorineural Hearing Loss in Older Community-Dwelling Adults in Australia. (PubMed)

The Apolipoprotein Allele and Sensorineural Hearing Loss in Older Community-Dwelling Adults in Australia. Previous research has investigated whether the apolipoprotein E (APOE) ε4 allele, which is associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline, is also associated with hearing loss in older people. Results of the very limited research to date are conflicting, and sample sizes for all but one study were small. The present study aimed to investigate whether there is an association between (...) was significantly associated with a reduction in mean hearing thresholds at 1 and 2 kHz, but again this effect was no longer statistically significant after adjusting for age.The results of this study did not provide any evidence of a statistically significant association between APOE ε4 allele status and hearing loss for older adults. Further investigation of the effect of homozygous carrier status on hearing thresholds is required.
