This book provides an in-depth discussion on the dynamics and challenges of prosthetic restoration of hearing via implantation. The text succinctly discusses the latest cochlear implant technology while effectively addressing implant results in terms of the "human connection" -- the interface of implants with the nervous system and the impact on patient's overall life. Included in an easy-to-understand format are graphics for illustrating concepts such as synaptic function, neurologic sequelae of deafness, language learning, speech processing strategies, interaction of hearing and attention, cost-effectiveness analysis, and hierarchical rehabilitation strategies as well as sidebars for addressing related topics of interest and controversial ideas.
