Abstract

Cognitive decline is strongly associated with peripheral hearing loss and changes in central auditory processing skills. Investigating auditory functions in populations at risk of developing AD using auditory electrophysiological measurements may provide a tool to aid the identification of preclinical AD. This thesis aimed to investigate auditory electrophysiological assessment measures in relation to biological markers of AD in those at high risk of AD. This thesis also investigated the relatability of objective electrophysiological measures (auditory steady-state response) for measuring hearing thresholds in older adults and how it compares to the current gold standard, hearing acuity test(behavioural pure-tone audiometry).
