Auditory perception is the ability to receive and interpret information through audible frequency waves transmitted through the ears or technological devices. Auditory processing can also arise from auditory stimulation via cochlear implants and hearing aids. Moreover, other sensory modalities could influence or even support auditory perception and processing, particularly with reference to multisensory integration. Overall, studies of auditory perception and cognition have also been considered important in various fields, and this topic may have implications for typical development, aging, and clinical settings. The exploration of the relationship between auditory perception and cognition provides many potential benefits, including those concerning the development of signal processing applications and automatic speech recognition. While these technologies are maturing, there is still much room for improvement. Auditory processing also appears to be fundamental for neurodevelopment, having consequences on different skills and patterns not immediately or strictly related to audition, such as emotion recognition and working memory. Additionally, hearing loss has been identified as being one of the modifiable risk factors for dementia and cognitive decline. Thus, though there are numerous connections between audition and cognition, these associations are, in many cases, hypothetical and still being investigated.
The present Special Issue aims to highlight current perspectives on the relationship between auditory perceptions and cognition in all stages of life, especially from a neuroscientific perspective. It will also bring attention to auditory dysfunction and cognitive decline. We welcome original articles and reviews that deepen our understanding of such a field.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
