New autocorrelation based self-learning method to detect sound spectral components in cochlear nerve firing patterns in case of cochlear implants

A new self-learning method is proposed to detect sound spectral components in cochlear nerve firing patterns. The row-wise autocorrelation images from cochlear nerve firing patterns are employed to determine frequency specific autocorrelation masks. Afterwards, these masks are cross-correlated with the cochlear nerve autocorrelation pattern of unknown sound… (More)
