The integration of information across sensory modalities enables sound to be processed in the context of position, movement, and object identity. Inputs to the granule cell domain (GCD) of the cochlear nucleus have been shown to arise from somatosensory brain stem structures, but the nature of the projection from the spinal trigeminal nucleus is unknown.

There is growing evidence that hearing involves the integration of many brain functions, including vision, balance, somatic sensation, learning and memory, and emotional state. Some of these integrative processes begin at the earliest stages of the central auditory system. In this review, we will discuss evidence that reveals multimodal projections into the(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the feasibility of using the deaf white cat model of early-onset deafness. We studied the neuronal effects of prosthetic intervention with a clinical, "off-the-shelf" multichannel cochlear implant. METHODS We placed cochlear implants in 5 deaf white kittens at age 12 and 24 weeks. The devices were activated and stimulated in the(More)
A significant number of deaf patients that have received cochlear implants now achieve higher word recognition scores then those with conventional auditory prostheses. This situation makes the choice of which type of auditory rehabilitation to propose a complex matter in patients with remaining auditory function. Our paper aims at providing some arguments(More)
