As people age, there is a decrease in the ability to perceive certain attributes of an acoustic signal, as well as to understand speech accurately.   Three factors are known to contribute to these problems: age-related hearing loss (ARHL) in the auditory periphery, deterioration of central auditory pathways, and reduced cognitive capacity.  This presentation will provide an overview of the mechanisms by which these factors contribute to age-related decline in auditory and speech processing, including research findings that shed light on the relative import of these factors.  The benefit of hearing aids and auditory training toward improving these difficulties, as evidenced by behavior and neuroplasticity, will be discussed.
