When you schedule your initial hearing test and hearing screening with our Queens, Manhattan, or Brooklyn hearing doctor, you are embarking on a journey that can improve much more than your hearing.
Our working memory serves like a mental blackboard that temporarily – and simultaneously – stores and processes the information we need for a range of complex cognitive tasks. When we participate in conversations, our brain continually makes a connection between our working memory and long term memory to find meaning in speech.
If we can’t figure out what was said, we can keep holding the information we heard in working memory, erase our mental blackboard, and try again. However, if our cognitive abilities decline or we don’t have enough working memory to keep what was heard available until we solve the puzzle, understanding is lost.
In order to help you adapt to your restored hearing ability, we enroll our patients in an ongoing auditory rehabilitation and education series. Brain Fitness training is crucial for the well-being of the ‘grey matter’ in our heads. The maxim ‘use it or lose it’ is appropriate for this subject specifically. When embarking on any new task, there is always a period of time where someone may feel inadequate. This is because with each new task, we must redevelop the neuro-pathways we may never have used, or simply haven’t used in years.
Along with the Harvard University, the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, and Yale research programs, the audiology team at Advanced Hearing Center is dedicated to assisting our New York City population of aging seniors. Using multiple brain fitness training programs, we stimulate the brain through both audio and visual methods.
Brain fitness training is one of the most thrilling developments in current medical science. With a simple commitment to play ‘games’ on your home computer, iPad, or tablet for 12-15 minutes a day, 5 days a week, this free eight-week program is designed to help you listen & hear more clearly, sharpen your memory, strengthen your visual acuity, develop a sharper reaction time, and feel more confident.
