Auditory cortex activation to natural speech and simulated cochlear implant speech measured with functional near-infrared spectroscopy.

Abstract

The primary goal of most cochlear implant procedures is to improve a patient's ability to discriminate speech. To accomplish this, cochlear implants are programmed so as to maximize speech understanding. However, programming a cochlear implant can be an iterative, labor-intensive process that takes place over months. In this study, we sought to determine… (More)
