About this book


Cochlear implants have instigated a popular but controversial revolution in the treatment of deafness. This book discusses the physiological bases of using artificial devices to electrically stimulate the auditory system to interpret sounds. As the first successful device to restore neural function, the cochlear implant has served as a model for research in neuroscience and biomedical engineering. Implants and other auditory prostheses are discussed in the context of historical treatment, engineering, psychophysics, and clinical issues as well as their implications for speech, cognition, behavior, and the long-term effects on recipients
