Intracochlear recordings in cochlear implant recipients provide access to the electrically evoked compound action potential (ECAP). ECAP thresholds are potential predictors of speech processor map's threshold and comfortable loudness levels. The auditory nerve's refractory properties can influence these levels due to high-rate stimulation with interpulse(More)
OBJECTIVE In cochlear implant recipients, the threshold of the electrically evoked compound action potential (ECAP) has been shown to correlate with the perceptual detection threshold and maximum comfortable loudness levels (respectively, T- and C-levels) used for implant programming. Our general objective was to model the relationship between ECAP(More)
The auditory nerve's electrically evoked compound action potential is recorded in deaf patients equipped with the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant using a reverse telemetry system (NRT). Since the threshold of the NRT response (NRT-T) is thought to reflect the psychophysics needed for programming cochlear implants, efforts have been made by specialized(More)
Research in neural response telemetry (NRT) with the Cochlear 'Nucleus' CI24M Implant began a few years ago, using the first NRT software version (2.04). It has been demonstrated that NRT offers possibilities for fitting the implant speech processor. NRT sessions, however, remain lengthy for the patients, especially for children, and NRT research is seeking(More)
OBJECTIVE One of the main difficulties in electrical compound action potential (ECAP) recordings is to reduce the stimulus artifact due to electrical stimulation. The neural response telemetry (NRT) system of the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant extracts the ECAP response using a forward-masking (standard) subtraction technique. However, it has been shown that(More)
INTRODUCTION Electrically evoked compound action potentials (TECAP) of the auditory nerve can be recorded in cochlear implants. TECAP thresholds are used to predict threshold levels for speech processor maps. The auditory nerve's refractory properties can influence these levels. METHODS Recovery functions were investigated at 84 stimulation sites in 14(More)
