Optimization of Cochlear Implants and Hearing Aids
Our laboratory aims to find ways to improve speech and music perception in people with hearing loss who use cochlear implants and/or hearing aids. The purpose of the current study is to measure how pitch is fused between the ears, and how this is affected by experience with hearing loss, hearing aids, or cochlear implants.
