With young babies now receiving cochlear implants, a method is
urgently needed to be able to program the implant without asking the person when they hear a sound or how loud it is.

We are currently testing different methods to obtain the cortical auditory-evoked potential (CAEP) signals from the brain using the internal electrodes of the cochlear implant as measurement electrodes. After this has been achieved and optimised, the method can be adapted into the clinical fitting software so that a person’s program can be set ‘at the push of a button’.
