Cochlear implants (CIs) are neural prostheses that restore hearing by stimulating auditory nerve pathways within the cochlea using an implanted electrode array. Research has shown when multiple electrodes stimulate the same nerve pathways, competing stimulation occurs and hearing outcomes decline. Recent clinical studies have indicated that hearing outcomes(More)
Cochlear Implants (CI) are surgically implanted neural prosthetic devices used to treat severe-to-profound hearing loss. Recent studies have suggested that hearing outcomes with CIs are correlated with the location where individual electrodes in the implanted electrode array are placed, but techniques proposed for determining electrode location have been(More)
