Computer Models Of Neuronal Sound Processing In The Brain Lead To Cochlear Implant Improvements, Technische Universitat Munchen Study
12/2/2013 6:24:03 AM
Children learning to speak depend on functional hearing. So-called cochlear implants allow deaf people to hear again by stimulating the auditory nerve directly. Researchers at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) are working to overcome current limits of the technology. They are investigating the implementation of signals in the auditory nerve and the subsequent neuronal processing in the brain. Using the computer models developed at the TUM manufacturers of cochlear implants improve their devices.
