Overview

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Bob Carlyon and Dr Deborah Vickers

Cochlear implants (CIs) restore hearing to deaf people by electrically stimulating the auditory nerve (AN). This meeting will focus on the limitations and successes of CIs and on new methods for improving them. Topics include new methods of stimulating the AN, measuring AN survival so as to aid patient-specific processing, understanding the brain changes that occur when hearing is restored by a CI, and how to best combine CI stimulation with residual acoustic hearing.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
