Traumatic brain injury to the parts of the brain responsible for processing auditory information can result in hearing loss that is difficult to assess and treat. Symptoms can include difficulty in filtering background noises or filtering out specific sounds, confusion, and disorientation or nausea. Treatment of this type of hearing loss varies, but primarily consists of psychological treatment focused around rehabilitation and coping.
