One of the paragraphs she said ” The hair cells transmit signals received from the bones in the middle ear to the auditory nerve, which sends them to the brain. Aging and exposure to noise cause hair cells to die off, starting with those that transmit high-frequency sounds like “s” and “t.” Medical science has not yet found a way to repair this nerve damage.”
