A cochlear implant is a device which restores some hearing in severely-to-profoundly deaf people when the organ of Corti has not developed or is destroyed by disease or injury to such an extent no comparable hearing can be obtained with a hearing aid. When the organ of Corti is severely malfunctioning or absent, sound vibrations cannot be transduced into temporo-spatial patterns of action potentials along the auditory nerve for the coding of frequency and intensity. As a result, a hearing aid which amplifies sound, is of little or no use.
