Abstract

The main objective of this project is to design, develop, and evaluate speech processors for implantable auditory prostheses. Ideally, such processors will represent the information content of speech in a way that can be perceived and utilized by implant patients. An additional objective is to record responses of the auditory nerve to a variety of electrical stimuli in studies with patients. Results from such recordings can provide important information on the physiological function of the nerve, on an electrode-by-electrode basis, and can be used to evaluate the ability of speech processing strategies to produce desired spatial or temporal patterns of neural activity.
