Can early hearing impairment lead to cognitive challenges later in life? <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Yune Lee</a> from the <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Ohio State University</a> talks with us about his research into how even minor hearing loss can increase the cognitive load required to distinguish spoken language. His article "<a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Differences in hearing acuity among 'normal-hearing' young adults modulate the neural basis for speech comprehension</a>" was published with multiple co-authors in the May 2018 issue in <em><a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">eNeuro</a></em>.<div><br></div><div><br></div>
