Adults who have lost their hearing can also benefit from cochlear implants. The devices have advanced to the most successful neuroprostheses. They allow patients to understand the spoken word quite well again. But the limits of the technology are reached when listening to music, for example, or when many people speak at once. Initial improvements are realized by using cochlear implants in both ears. http://www.disabled-world.com/disability/types/hearing/communication/tum.php

In people with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL), the most common type of permanent hearing loss, the specialized hair cells within the cochlea or the nerves transmitting the signals are damaged.  There is some progress in restoring and improving the hearing in patients suffering from SNHL through cochlear implant technology.  A cochlear implant bypasses the hair cells by collecting sounds, digitizing them, and transferring them to electrodes implanted in the cochlea.  These electrodes stimulate the auditory nerve, which can then send signals to the brain, and that’s how sound is perceived.  Cochlear implants do not fully restore hearing however.  They operate by activating large groups of neurons simultaneously, resulting in a reduced sound resolution.  Our current study aims to improve and direct neural activation to more discrete populations of neurons, thus increasing the resolution of the sounds.  The methods involve attracting spiral ganglion neurites toward the implant itself using different environmental media and neurotrophic factors.

Cochlear implants may be losing their awkward external hardware | Cochlear implants | Scoop.it

Thanks to the development of cochlear implants, many people who would otherwise be quite deaf are able to regain a limited sense of hearing. Unfortunately, the implants also incorporate external components that can get in the user's way, and that look ... well, that look like the user has something hooked up to their ear. Now, however, researchers at MIT, Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary have developed a chip that could lead to cochlear implants that are entirely implanted.
