Royal Society Meeting: Realising the potential of Cochlear Implants
1st June 2020 - 2nd June 2020
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.
