...Cochlear Implant Introduction The ear is divided into 3 parts (anatomically) as the Outer, Middle and Inner parts. And Cochlea forms the inner part of the year. “The cochlea is the auditory portion of the inner ear. Its core component is the Organ of Corti, the sensory organ of hearing, which is distributed along the partition separating fluid chambers in the coiled tapered tube of the cochlea. The cochlea is divided into three different chambers, each of which is receptive to different frequencies of sound “(Jarvis 2004). Cochlear damage means complete loss of hearing and it can be caused by various factors like exposure to loud noise, meningitis,...

...COCHLEAR IMPLANTS IN REVERBERATION Acoustic Simulation of Cochlear Implants in Reverberation Introduction The cochlear implant is a minute electronic device that aids a profoundly deaf person or a person with hearing difficulties to sense a sound signal. This implant is also referred to as the bionic ear. The device works by stimulating the auditory nerves located inside the cochlea with an electric pulse. The implant consists of two portions. One part of the device sits behind the human ear while the second part is implanted under the skin. The device does not amplify the sound but stimulates any working auditory nerves (NIDCD, 2007).

This cochlea implant has internal and external devices, which need to be interconnected correctly and surgically implanted to the patient in order to work well (Hladek, 1).

...Cochlear Implants Affiliation Cochlear Implants What Are Cochlear Implants? Cochlear implants are electronic devices that are designed to provide an amplified sensation to any person with deficit in the hearing process, and for that cause profound deafness. The amplification stimulates the hearing nerves inside the ear. Those utilizing the implants are not in a position to benefit from the hearing aids. The auditory nerves receive direct stimulation as the hair cells that do receive a motion effect to facilitate hearing are bypassed. The implantation simply acts to increase the hearing effect rather than curing the...
