"Cochlear Implants: Advances in electrode design and surgical techniques. Benefits of combined acoustic and electric hearing for speech and music perception"

John Galvin, PhD is a Research Scientist at the House Institute Foundation in Los Angeles, CA. He has been involved with cochlear implant research for more than 20 years, first at the House Ear Institute, then at UCLA, and now at the House Institute Foundation. John’s areas of interest in cochlear implant research range from psychophysics to music perception, with many things in between. The cochlear implant is now more than 60 years old, and nearly 1,000,000 devices have been implanted in deaf adults and children worldwide. Dr. William House and the House Clinic/Institute were at the forefront of the development of the cochlear implant. While there have been many advances in cochlear implant technology, many limitations persist. Arguably, the greatest advance in cochlear implants has been the increasing inclusion of residual acoustic hearing in the ear to be implanted and/or in the contralateral ear. Even a little bit of acoustic hearing can provide pitch cues that can be greatly beneficial for difficult listening situations. In this presentation, we will review the history of the cochlear implant, advances in electrode design and surgical techniques, and the benefits of combined acoustic and electric hearing for speech and music perception.


Greetings 9:30 AM Pacific Time; Presentation 10:00.
