What does the world sound like to people with cochlear implants? Michael Dorman, an ASU professor of Speech and Hearing Science, shares the sounds of implants and talks about his research into making them work better. Cochlear implants help people who are deaf or hearing impaired who cannot benefit from a standard hearing aid.
This video was produced and edited by Alexander D. Chapin and the cochlear implant illustration was rendered by Mai-Li Le, Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.
