Presbycusis refers to a form of sensorineural hearing loss that occurs as a function of age and is often associated with a decrease in the ability to hear high frequencies. Moreover, Presbycusis is the reduced sensitivity to high-pitched tones; a normative age-related loss of the ability to hear high-pitched tones. Presbycusis is also called Sociocusis since this loss also appears to be related to exposure to environmental sounds
