by Jeff Dodge,

Summary : Cochlear implants are neural prostheses used to restore sound perception to the deaf. Jeff has an Advanced Bionics brand HiRes 90K implant and will go over the basics of how cochlear implants work, what CIs sound like, the different neural stimulation strategies involved and their effect on channel crosstalk, some human problems related to CIs, and what he’s learned attempting to reverse engineer the signal powering his own CI.
