Our new paper shows that many (14 out of 16) bilateral cochlear implant users have at least one electrode that is perceptually misaligned across the ears. These mismatches may reduce the benefits patients receive from bilateral cochlear implants. Perhaps a change in maps could improve bilateral alignment and as a result, improve performance?
This paper was produced in collaboration with the Binaural Hearing Lab at the University of Illinois, Justin Aronoff and Julia Stelmach.
