Interest in artificially stimulating the auditory nerve electrically for sensori-neural deafness was first sparked off by Volta in the 18th century. Count Volta, who was the first to develop the electric battery, connected up a number of his batteries to two metal rods which he inserted into his ears. Having placed the rods in his ears he pressed the switch and received "une secousse dans la tete" and perceived a noise like "the boiling of thick soup".
