Title
:
Cochlear implants: combined electric and binaural acoustic stimulation

Goal
:
The goal of this study is to

determine

the efficacy of
binaural
hearing preservation for speech recognition
in complex listening environments

and

spatial resolution
in adult cochlear implant recipients.

Title
:
Cochlear Implant performance in Realistic Listening Environ
ments

-

/

Goal
:
The goal of this study is to
assess speech recognition performance for
unilateral and bilateral implant
recipients in both standard and simulated realistic test environments,
with the goal of creating a decision matrix
that
links data that can be easily collected in the clinic, e.g., CNC scores in quiet and the amount of residual
hearing, with data that cannot be collected in the clinic, i.e., performance data collected with multiple, spatially
separated loudspeakers

based frequency reallocation for optimizin
g cochlear implant programming

07/2012
-
06/2014

Goal
:
The goal of this study is to
develop and assess the clinical utility of an image
-
guided approach for
determining the position of imp
lanted cochlear implant electrodes relative to stimulation targets [the nerves of
the Spiral Ganglion (SG)] for cochlear implant programming assistance.
