Abstract:This is a first study describing long-term smoking effects on the AMLR in older individuals. Current findings are discussed in terms of nicotine's effect on the central auditory pathways. The possible interaction of advanced age, hearing loss, and gender are also considered. Several follow-up studies are indicated to clarify the effects of nicotine and advanced age on the AMLR.
