  author={David B. Grayden and Graeme M. Clark},
The cochlear implant is an electronic device that is implanted under the skin with electrodes positioned in the cochlea to stimulate the auditory nerve. Electrical currents induce action potentials in the auditory nerve fibres and these are transmitted to the brain.

It consists of a receiver-stimulator, which receives power and decodes instructions for controlling the electrical stimulation, and an… CONTINUE READING
