Bionic Hearing

Overview

Formerly the Bionic Ear Institute, the Bionics Institute has a long and distinguished history in bionic hearing research.

Yet our focus has always been on the future – improving the performance and design of the cochlear implant and other hearing devices so that more adults and children can benefit from this life-changing technology.

Current projects include clinical research to improve outcomes for hearing-impaired children and adults, sound processing research to enhance the perception of speech, the development of techniques to protect and repair damage to the inner ear, and understanding the brain’s plasticity and its response to combined electric and acoustic stimulation.
