Humes L, Kinney D, Brown S, Kiener A, Quigley T. The effects of dosage and duration of auditory training for older adults with hearing impairment. J Acoust Soc Am. 2014;136:EL224 pubmed publisher
..Based on these results, as well as prior literature on learning theory, training 2x or 3x/week for 5-15 weeks appears to be sufficient to yield training benefits with this training regimen. ..

..Structural models confirmed this result. These analyses suggest that the long-standing observation of age-related changes in cognitive function may be mediated by age-related changes in global sensory processing. ..

..Little evidence was seen for systematic improvement in aided performance or benefit, consistent with that expected from acclimatization, in any participant or for any measure of benefit. ..

..Training on frequent words and frequent phrases generalized to sentences constructed from frequently occurring words whether spoken by talkers heard during training or by a novel talker. ..

..Discriminant analysis, however, indicated that those in the group who retained their (linear) hearing aids tended to have better finger dexterity and higher loudness discomfort levels than those who did not. ..
