One important aspect of cochlear implantation is the placement of a multiple-electrode array close to residual auditory nerve fibres so that discrete groups of fibres can be stimulated electrically according to the place basis of frequency coding. Furthermore, in patients who are postlingually deaf these electrodes should lie in relation to the nerve fibres which are responsible for transmitting the frequencies which are important in speech comprehension, viz. 300-3,000 Hz. The method of electrode insertion should also ensure that there is no significant damage to auditory nerve fibres.
