(2018)Cochlear implant (CI) users differ in their auditory speech understanding ability. This variability is partly due to variability in deafness history and pathology, and partly due to functional brain changes that are likely ...
(2017)Retinal prostheses are a promising treatment for blindness caused by photoreceptor degeneration. Electrodes implanted in the retina deliver electrical stimuli in the form of current pulses that activate surviving neurons ...
Investigating the effect of focused multipolar stimulation for cochlear implants: preclinical studies (2016)Multichannel cochlear implants have been well accepted as an effective and safe treatment for severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss through electrical stimulation of residual spiral ganglion neurons. However, speech ...
