It is generally agreed that if a cochlear implant hearing prosthesis is to enable a patient to understand speech, it must be a multiple-electrode system. In addition, stimulation of the auditory nervous system should approximate the patterns of neural excitation occurring in people with normal hearing, and this is especially important when a patient has previously experienced hearing. For this reason the correct application of electrophysiological principles to the design of a hearing prosthesis is desirable, and is discussed in this paper with special reference to a device developed in the Departments of Otolaryngology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Melbourne (UMDOLEE).
