Hidden Hearing Loss

When a person can hear quite well in a quiet environment but has trouble hearing in a crowded and/or noisy environment, he is said to have hidden hearing loss. **A previously-known cause of hidden hearing loss stems from the connection between synapses and hair cells being lost.

Now a new discovery for another cause of hidden hearing loss has been found: a loss of myelin. A deficiency in the Schwann cells that make myelin which insulates the neuronal axons in the ear.

**I cannot find it now but, some time back, neuro had a thread that is somehow connecting (in my mind) to the first-mentioned cause above. I would like to go back and read it. Can anyone say where it is, please?
