Josh Stohl of MED-EL is visiting us for two days. We've both been working on similar experiments on pitch with cochlear implants. So the plan is to compare notes and see if two heads are better than one.
Last week Stefan Brill came by as well to check out what's happening here at NYU. He drove from Toronto to New York on his way to North Carolina. Unfortunately we didn't get a photo of him presenting here. So we asked him to take a selfie in NC with Josh. The photo he sent us was particularly cool! Stefan (left) and Josh (right) are holding up the original CIS processor built by Blake Wilson for Inneraid patients for the famous Nature paper:
Wilson, B.S., Finley, C.C., Lawson, D.T., Wolford, R.D., Eddington, D.K., and Rabinowitz, W.M. (1991). Better speech recognition with cochlear implants. Nature. 352, 236-238. pdf
This is where we provide updates from the lab
