A lot many studies have been done, which have rightly concluded that exposure to loud music leads to hearing loss, which can range from temporary to permanent. It is the first time when a study has revealed the underlying loss to nerve cells when ears get exposed to loud music.
The study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has revealed that exposure to loud music causes same loss to nerve cells as being caused by multiple sclerosis.
Lead researcher Dr. Martine Hamann, from the University of Leicester, was of the view the loud music rips off a thin protection lining known as myelin, which transfers signal from brain. This happens at the time when ears are exposed to noise level, which is above 110 decibels.
The stripping off mylin leads to temporary deafness, said Hamann. He further affirmed that the study findings will help to find more ways of treating healing problems.
“Dissecting the cellular mechanisms underlying this condition is likely to bring a very significant healthcare benefit to a wide population. The work will help prevention as well as progression”, affirmed Hamann. The study has also led study researchers to know more about sound mechanism of the body.
