Scientists at The German Primate Center want to use genetic engineering methods to improve cochlear implants.
Researchers have developed a computer model which predicts the neuronal activation patterns that the cochlear implant creates in the auditory nerve fibers.
People with cochlear implants who receive postoperative care via a remote, telemedicine service trialled by the University of Southampton have shown a significant increase in their empowerment coupled with real improvements in their hearing tests after using the online care tools.
