Évolution des performances cognitives des sujets implantés cochléaires évaluée par les tests MoCA et Codex

Abstract : Several studies have shown that hearing impairment had an impact on cognitive functioning. In this study, 24 adults with severe post lingual hearing loss completed Codex (Cognitive disorders examination, Belmin, 2004) and MoCA (Montreal cognitive assessment, Nasreddine, 2005) tests, both prior to and after cochlear implantation. Results show a significant improvement in cognitive abilities in the group that had pathological scores at the MoCA test prior to cochlear implantation. No correlations were found between cognitive scores and subject’s age, or duration of deafness. We argue that the MoCA test could be an interesting tool in observing the evolution of cognitive abilities in subjects with abnormal scores prior to implantation as well as assessing cognitive frailties in hearing impaired elderly subjects. This multidimensional approach could lead to a interdisciplinary intervention in the sensory-cognitive deprived subjects.
