Cochlear implantation is an accepted treatment method for adults and children with severe to profound hearing loss. Confidence in technology has led to changes in individuals who can receive a cochlear implant and changes in expected benefit with a cochlear implant. This article describes the research and development activities at MED-EL, which make(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study, we analyze how electrically evoked compound action potential (ECAP) responses can be used to assess whether electrodes should be activated in the map and to estimate C levels in the Med-El Tempo+ Cochlear Implant Speech Processor. DESIGN ECAP thresholds were measured using the ECAP Recording System of the Pulsar CI implant.(More)
Stimulus artifact is one of the main limitations when considering electrically evoked compound action potential for clinical applications. Alternating stimulation (average of recordings obtained with anodic-cathodic and cathodic-anodic bipolar stimulation pulses) is an effective method to reduce stimulus artifact when evoked potentials are recorded.

The masker-probe paradigm is a commonly used technique to reduce stimulus artifact in electrically evoked compound action potential registers. This method takes advantage of the refractory properties of the cochlear nerve, combining the responses to different types of stimulation pulses in order to obtain the biological response free of artifact.
