OBJECTIVE Emerging evidence in auditory neuroscience suggests that central auditory pathways process speech asymmetrically. In concert with left cortical specialization for speech, a "right-ear advantage" in speech perception has been identified. The purpose of this study is to determine if this central asymmetry in speech processing has implications for selecting the ear for cochlear implantation. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Academic university medical center… CONTINUE READING
