Owls hold secret to ageless ears

1 post in this topic

Barn owls keep their acute sense of hearing into old age, scientists have discovered.

Previously, starlings have been found to have this ability, suggesting birds are protected from age-related hearing loss.

Understanding more about the "ageless ears" of barn owls could help develop new treatments for human hearing problems.

Birds are able to naturally repair damage to the inner ear.
