Investigating Declines in Speech Processing with Age

Cognitive decline with aging is a complex process with many facets. Different classes of task suffer loss of function at different rates and vary between individuals, and researchers use these differences to map the brain and the neurodegeneration that accompanies aging. Here, researchers investigate speech processing: Researchers have found clues to the causes of age-related hearing loss.
