Current research suggests the need for even faster processors, more complex electrode arrays and better transmission systems. Technical developments in all of these areas are in progress and will be essential for the next generation of auditory prostheses. 4 BINAURAL HEARING Normally-hearing individuals have two ears and the two ears receive slightly different information from a given sound source. The differences in the inputs received by the two ears are precisely analyzed in the central nervous system, allowing the person to accurately identify the location of the sound source and to selectively © 2001 by CRC Press LLC listen to a particular sound source in a noisy environment.

With this strategy the range of frequencies that can be encoded in the envelope of the amplitude-modulated pulse trains is, of course, limited by the pulse rate, which in turn is limited by the number of channels through which the processor must cycle. 5, safety becomes a concern when very high rates of stimulation are used. 34,35,67 © 2001 by CRC Press LLC Several variables differ among these studies and could contribute to the differences in results. Additional research will be needed to sort out the effects of these variables.

5). This advantage of dividing the temporal information into channels can be demonstrated acoustically using normal-hearing listeners. ,56 who extracted the temporal envelope from the speech signal and used band-pass filters to create one or more channels of information. The © 2001 by CRC Press LLC outputs of these filters were then used to amplitude modulate sinusoidal or narrowband noise carriers so the output of each channel would stimulate different parts of the cochlea, depending on the spectrum of the carrier.
