Division of Psychiatry seminar: Hearing loss: a new reversible causal factor for dementia?
B40 LT |
access via Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Sergi Costafreda, Senior Clinical Lecturer, Division of Psychiatry, UCL
Recent cohort studies have shown that hearing loss in middle age is a risk factor for accelerated cognitive decline and dementia in later life. Hearing loss is very prevalent, potentially preventable and treatable, and if it can be confirmed as a causative factor the benefits of addressing hearing loss could lead to substantial benefits in reduced dementia incidence. In this talk I will present the evidence linking hearing loss and dementia, discuss possible mechanistic pathways and confounding factors of the association, and reflect on research that could clarify this link.
Speaker: Dr Sergi Costafreda. Host: Prof Gill Livingston, Division of Psychiatry.
