BILATERAL COCHLEAR IMPLANTS: RESTORING BINAURAL PROCESSING BY EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING WITH BINAURAL CUES

Abstract

Cochlear implantation in both ears is increasingly common and while there are benefits, performance falls short of expectations, likely due to the degradation of the long-term deaf brain’s sensitivity to small timing differences of sounds reaching each of the two ears. By confirming the hypothesis that experience with high-fidelity timing information will improve performance, this study will drive the technical innovations required to maximise the benefits and investment of bilateral implants.
