Cochlear implants (CIs) restore hearing to deaf people by electrically stimulating the auditory nerve (AN). This meeting will focus on the limitations and successes of CIs and on new methods for improving them. Topics include new methods of stimulating the AN, measuring AN survival so as to aid patient-specific processing, understanding the brain changes that occur when hearing is restored by a CI, and how to best combine CI stimulation with residual acoustic hearing.
The meeting will be held at Eastwood Hall just outside Nottingham, UK, and there will be a poster session in addition to the programme of invited talks. Full details, including information on how to apply, are now available on the Royal Society’s webpage for the meeting, available at this link.
Registration will be free but attendees will pay for their own food and accommodation.
