Implantables, Hearing Enhancement, and Amplification Research (I HEAR) Lab

Formerly known as the Cochlear Implant Research Lab

  • Our lab focuses on speech perception, speech and language function, and basic auditory function as associated with the combination of electric and acoustic hearing—particularly with respect to preservation of acoustic hearing in the implanted ear.  

  • Additional interests currently under investigation in the lab include:

    • Binaural hearing with bilateral cochlear implants and/or hearing preservation

    • Image-guided programming for cochlear implants

    • Pre-implant prediction of postoperative outcome
