    Webinar: Hearing at the Brain-Machine Interface

    This presentation provides an overview on the cochlear implant as an example of the successful integration of biotechnology with the neural sciences, which has changed the lives of people with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. The cochlear implant is a transformative technology that converts sound information into nerve impulses to stimulate the cochlea creating the sensation of sound.

    This webinar features examples of what sounds like with a cochlear implant.

    It was originally presented as part of the Australian Hearing Hub’s Macquarie Minds Showcase at Macquarie University in December 2016.

    Duration: 10 mins.
