Title: Protecting you hearing will have a plus on your cognition & mental health

Description:

The Master program in Auditory Processing Disorder run by Professor ILIADOU organised a workshop with the title:Protecting you hearing will have a plus on your cognition & mental health. Dr Dalia Tsimpida (Psychologist in UK) gave a lecture on preventable hearing loss in children and adults stating the link between good hearing and good cognition and mental health. Dr Christos Sidiras (Denmark) gave a short presentation of the greater project that included the user-operated audiometric Matlab app that he developed. The project took place at Health Informatics and Technology The Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Institute (Denmark). The vast majority of the time was spend by actual demonstration of the two options of audiometric testing using a Matlab application and attendees were able to have a go and test their hearing. Earplugs were distributed to all attendees at the end of the workshop.
