In 1967, when I commenced cochlear implant research, there was little that could be done to help profoundly deaf people. With normal hearing, sound vibrations are converted by hair cells in the inner ear into electrical signals. These produce temporal and spatial patterns of electrical responses in the auditory pathways. With a profound hearing loss the hair cells are absent, and amplifying sound with a hearing aid provides little help.
