This is a paper presented at a symposium on the Mechanisms of Hearing, held at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia from August 23-27, 1983. This version is reproduced with the permission of Monash University Press.
A total of eight patients have been assessed with the multi-channel cochlear prosthesis at the University of Melbourne. The first two patients were implanted with a prototype device in 1978 and 1979, and their results with various speech evaluation procedures have been reported and summarized in detail elsewhere (Clark & Tong, 1982). Briefly, these results indicated that some very significant benefit could be obtained for these patients when using the cochlear prosthesis with external speech processing, particularly when using the device in conjunction with lipreading. It was also shown that some significant understanding of speech was possible without lipreading (open-set) for both patients, although this was fairly limited.
