If people aged 30-80 take a memory test, then those with hearing ranges less than 40Hz to 12kHz will score less than the average score because moderate hearing loss begins hindering one's social capabilities, plausibly negatively affecting cognitive functions.
We found the data verifies our hypothesis, as the average memory score of participants with the worst hearing (40hz-12kHz) was 1.98 below the total average test score of 16.23/20.
Although our experiment didn’t confirm an unequivocal correlation between memory and hearing loss, the results from our experiment generally verified our hypothesis, displaying hope of the correlations existence.
