Hearing of noise levels above 110 decibels damage the protective insulating myelin sheath (myelin) of nerve cells which carry signals from the ear to the brain. Myelin loss disrupts electrical nerve signals leads to partial / complete deafness. Myelin loss as a result of noise pollution is reversible (re-grows over time) means hearing loss can be recovered.
